Juliet’s thoughts: 牵手 (Holding Hands)
Windson and I had the fortune of meeting the lovely Janelle on another wedding where she decided to invite us to sing for her wedding on 10th Jan.
The first thing that caught me by surprise was that the couple had, according to the manager, requested that we perform centrestage. It was different to have all the attention on the musicians, which was in the way nice and allowed us to address everyone when we sang.
The highlight of the night for me was 牵手 (Holding Hands) (this moving ballad can be found in our recommended song list for 2009!) by Su Rui. I have always loved this song, but never had a chance to perform it. The lyrics moved me and i was looking forward to sharing the song. But we were rather surprised when the guests cheered and clapped just halfway through the song.
Windson did a very bubbly and moving version of Till There Was You and got us grooving. Feri as usual did his thang and kept us through jazz standards such as Come Fly With Me, Dream A Little Dream, Fly Me To The Moon, and the Shanghai Jazz numbers such as 我要你的爱 (I Want Your Love), 给我一个吻 (Give Me A Kiss), to folk/country/pop ballads like Looking In The Eyes Of Love and That’s When I Love You.
Here’s sharing another piece of news for everyone to cheer about, Feri shared that he was soon going to be a father! That’s double cheer for the night.
To add, the band agrees and has voted Janelle to be sweetest and most earnest bride we’d performed for, when she gave us each a friendly hug to round off the night. Pleasure to sing for you both, Janelle, and Darren. Blessed and Blissful years to come.
