Shawn’s Thoughts: Fly Me To The Moon

A wedding fit for royalty.

That was what i thought when i stepped into the ballroom with my barang barang.  From the palatial ballroom fixtures to the exquisite wedding decor, this couple was determined to give their friends and relatives a memorable wedding celebration.

About a third of the guests flew in from Hong Kong to attend the wedding.  The wedding planner was astute enough to engage an emcee who was proficient in Cantonese.  His experience showed as he tickled the guests throughout the dinner with his witty remarks delivered off the cuff.

We all agreed that the wedding provided us with the best stage, sound system and audience.  Usually we had to contort our bodies to fit a small stage, but the one we had was really generous.  There was also an elaborate mixing board, a fantastic arsenal of mikes (I had my entire drumkit miked up!), a dedicated soundman…we even had monitors and lights on our music stands!  Thanks, Colin!

Judy was fabulous.  That woman can really sing!  We did mostly classic ballads like Have I Told You Lately, The Way You Love Me and some Cantopop numbers.  A few swing and bossa were thrown into the mix.  I felt so alive performing those tunes, and I always learn something new after playing with Feri.

Congratulations Ivy and Boon Huat!  Thank you once again for engaging us for your fabulous wedding!
