It’s been sometime I haven’t share stories in my blog. Yes, is busy for a moment and will be busy in the coming month ( October ) too.

I thought of not writing this incident but I will think that if I share this, it might be beneficial to some of my fellow friends that are musician or emcee. And also a good precaution to the couples that are getting married soon.

This was happened on 4 October in a restaurant at Jalan Bukit Bintang.

First, we arrived at that place at very early hour in the morning, because we have to set up for the luncheon wedding function that the couple hired us for that day.

The security was good and treat us with courtesy. That really make me think that I would be having a nice day there. However…..

We set up while the restaurant is blaring with their loud volume of Chinese songs. Well, we don’t mind at all but we will definitely need their help to off their system for we need to sound check.

Soon, they have done with their table setting, I was asking them for the arrangement of food before our performances. Well, No action at all and yet the sales that serve my client hasn’t reached the place yet.

Nevertheless, when the projector screen arrived to the sceen, because of the limited space on stage, we had to move the champagne fountain tower to another side while we remained the cake table on the other side…. Then, the capten of that place stared nagging to us about separating the table means the seperation of the couple.. Well, I told her, I’m the emcee and I know that is fine and it happened in a lot of hotel having these kind of setting too. She ignore me and straight complained this matter to my client and mention about seperation from starting of the function till the end of the function. Hoo boy, I can’t stand that kind of treatment to me and told her to shut up or she became the emcee for that day and told her that she is the one who bad mouth the couple to have seperation if that ever happened.


The next interesting incident of that day is…..

During the cake cutting ceremony, the knife missing in action. My client were asking what happened to the knife?? And there the other staff were accusing us for shifting the cake table and champagne tower that’s why they lost the knife, where the truth is the sales saw some kids playing with that knife and she safe kept it till they have forgotten all about the knife and didn’t prepare it for the couple’s BIG MOMENT.


The toasting ceremony arrived, my part was flowing well. All the personal that involved in toasting ceremony was on stage… The champagne still remaining there with no action of serving from the staff. Bean couldn’t bear to see that situation and he started helping by dividing the champagne from the highest glass to other glasses so all involved will have the same level of champagne in their glasses. Out of our expectation, the staff suppose to serve on stage, came to Bean and told him to serve instead of she is the one who supposed to serve. Is Bean a waiter????? If they pay us for this, I be the first who gladly do it. Well???

Please don’t fall for these kind of service anymore.. Is really heartache and headache.

Ladies and gentlemen, reviewing Chinese restaurant of the year, best services of all?? Flower Drum…

That’s all for today. Write to you the soonest.

It's time to update for the month of July, lately I received a lot of phone calls, however, all the phone calls I received is of the same story I'm going to share with all my blog reader today.

Is really interesting because the phone calls I received in June is actually asking for the booking in the month of June too. It will be actually very late to book a wedding singer/ band that is your liking. The client that called me on 7 June is actually asking for 14 June. Answered the phone call telling her I was booked by other client and she asked me with disappointment why so early I'm already booked. Having the idea that she can only book the singer/band a week earlier from her date.

So, to avoid disappointment, please be advance on your bookings. The bookings or confirmation with deposit can actually done in 6 months advance. A lot of my other client, if they knew their date is actually a “ wong yat “( date that has a lot of couple getting married ) they will even book their date as early as 8 months.

Call now, and survey earlier, because your favourite wedding singer/ band might not be available when you have decided to have them for your wedding. You might felt incomplete for not having them. Don't worry so much on the expenses for your ang pow can covered that area, ha ha ha. Be merry and , CHEERS!

ANY LOKE 012-3161761


Hello again! It's been some time I haven't been updating my blog writing. That is because I had a lot of songs preparation to do. I will try to keep track with all my writing again.


Today, I will like to share a don't with my fellow musicians. Although I know this in the title of wedding do's and don'ts but this will consider as an issue also. For is useful not only for the couple and musicians, but to the guest that are participating weddings too.


Some couple will like to put up their wedding dinner in a famous location where everybody will know; especially the 5 stars hotel that are around the heart of city. But however, some couple will like to have their dinner in a location that is a bit hide out or not too easy to access.


Last Sunday, I was hired for a wedding function which held in a not easy access location. Thanks to all the search engines, I've got the map and the address of the location very easily. I started my journey early. Luckily I decided to start my journey early, because even with all the information that I got from the web, the location is really difficult to understand. I even studied the map upside down. Well, after all the searching at last I reach the location 2 hours later. So, I will strongly advise all my fellow musician friends not to take for granted. Check the place out if you really have no idea where; and ask the couple to assist you with the landmark.


I have experienced once, that I was only hired as the emcee for the night and there was a different band that they hired. The unpleasant part was, the band arrived at 7.00 p.m. With all the rush and even sound checking while guest already in the hall.. Umm... that needs a lot of ponder. Do you want to have this situation? The couple worried, the musicians were stuck in the traffic jam and with all the commotion the couple threaten them about the payment. Well, I wouldn't like to put myself in that kind of situation.


Actually the last part that I would like to enhance for this write up is :- For wedding couple, I knew there would be a place that really memorable for both of you which is really hide out for your dating purposes. But if you want to put up your wedding dinner at that particular place as well.... I would strongly suggest.. DON'T.. because that will either end up with the situation I mentioned as above or your guest lost their way and decided to go home instead of coming to your dinner. But if you plan to do so, please well plan all the information so these situation won't happened on you.

Bean 012-2546805



To All brides to and grooms to be...

It's been some time I've wrote, good to have subjects that I can write again. Lately, there been quite some couple coming to me having the same quiries. Well. is all about the lincense that they have to apply.

There is a venue that kept on pastuering couples to apply for the following license which are the PPM and MACP license. This will actually effect couple to hire band for their wedding dinner.Why? is all because the fees of applying these both license is quite expensive. Two license could be touching about RM 1,000.00. that's why.. with this heavy burden who wants to hire band? That will only add on to a lot of expenses.

But, DON'T WORRY, we have checked out from both license company; and guess what??? GOOD NEWS.. Ladies and Gentlemen, we will like to announce this to all Malaysian couple and to foreign couple that will be having their wedding dinner in Malaysia.. PPM and MACP is FREE for the one in a life time event.. YES.. That means you don't have to apply for both license in concern...

So.. if any sales personel that approach you and telling you that you need to apply for these two license.. Yeah.. you can tell him/her this license are not necessary... It's Free....

That's all for today.. hopefully our blog supply great info to all couples.. see ya..

ANY LOKE EMCEE wedding live band AT RENAISSANCE KOTA BHARU KELANTAN MALAYSIA



BEAN & ANY WEDDING LIVE MUSIC BAND EMCEE VIOLINIST

8th of March... Not only it is International Women's Day, it was also Calvin and Celine's wedding dinner night. The dinner was hosted in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. We started our journey a day ealier, 7th March and stranded in heavy traffic jam along MRR2. Everybody was going back to their hometown for 9th March was public holiday. The journey was quite hectic, because some drivers driven very carefully on the road where I'm quite a fast moving person. However, we survived the whole 6 hour plus journey and reached Kota Bharu, Kelantan at about 6.30 p.m.

We were given the accomodation at Celine's furniture shop upstair's with a air conditioned room. Calvin then invited us to his house and his mother -  a very skillful house wife, prepared a very famous dish in Kelantan for all of us. "Nasi Kerabu", green colored rice with fish floss, coconut flakes, mint leaves in fine pieces, ginger strips, fine lemon grass and with fish sauce called "budu". Two thumbs up for Calvin's mum, a divine and tasty dish, a very good cook. Heard that the green rice is actually cooked with 11 kind of herbs water.

Later that night, we went to KB Mall, a new mall in Kota Bharu. I had to go bacause I forgotten to bring my contact lens. Thanks to Calvin's friend Bryan and girl friend Therese, they are the one who brought us all around everywhere to shopping and sight-seeing. Is a great developement in Kota Bharu for having this mall, I actually can purchased daily use contact lenses even with my high power of short sighted and estimatism. Another 2 thumbs up.

The next day, the actual day of Calvin and Celine's marriage. We went there to the party at their house at around 11.30a.m. This day, they are serving another famous dish of Kelantan. " Nasi Dagang"- red coloured rice with various dishes like curry chicken, curry fish, vegetable and etc... Very tasty. We then went back to get our stuff and prepared to go for set up and sound check in Renaissance Hotel, Kota Bharu.

Met another band-Ray's band there and decided to jam together for the 1st set. Calvin's idea of getting me to play violin with them during their walk in given me the biggest lime light and great round applause. Very happy and felt successful for that moment. Thought that will be quite though to please most of the guest there for all chinese in Kelantan speaks hokkien ( I don't understand much of hokkien) but turn out in a very appreciative crowd for that night... Very very happy....

9th March - day to go home. Before going home, Bryan and Therese brought us for a short shight seeing tour to vsit most of the "wat"- temples. They treated us with famoust porridge and also a scrumptous malay food. They even brought us to buy keropok and also pack us with kuih bahulu to bring home. Thank you so much.... Bryan and Therese you are indeed a very reliable friend to us.. We then took  another 6 hours plus trip and went home safely.

Thanks to Calvin and Celine too. This trip is actually very meaningful and warm to us for the first time, we felt the sincere from Kota Bharu and big success in our performance.

谈及演奏者的辛酸史 http://beanpro57.webs.com



表演了十几年的经验,我,any和丈夫,bean,经历了无数的难题。也因这些难题而
成长。今天,就与我一同来分享我们的故事吧。

很多将要结婚的夫妇都会把婚礼晚宴摆设在酒店或酒楼。而这一些地方也是给我们
很多难处及辛酸。( 大部分的地方而已,不是全部。)
有一些大酒店,外表服务非常好,可是对代我们这一些表演者就非常的差。明明载
货梯是没坏的,可是他们偏偏告诉我们梯坏了,要把我们带来的仪器,绕一个大圈,
还一个一个的慢慢搬,而且是打楼梯的送 上 去。为何要如呢?

还有,酒店餐厅,如果你是付钱的客人,他们的服务可是非常好的噢。可是,如果,
像我们演奏家拿食物餐卷的话。。。我的天啊。。他们的脸色可以从笑变成苦呢。
服务可是一百巴仙的转变喔。。。

每当我还没化妆上台时,我的外表都会比较随便,很多人都会认为我是普通的嫂嫂。
由其是场地工作人员,会对我态度非常的差。而在我化妆之后,不认得我了,就会
待我很好。难道,化了妆及穿漂亮的衣服才值得他们的尊敬吗?

好了,暂时谈到此,下次,我们再谈谈其它的项目。再见咯。。。

NOISY BANDS , SINGERS & SOUND SYSTEM


Hi, Happy New Year of 2009, glad to write and share again. Was busy with some gigs lately and have slowed down my blog's update. It' good too cos I have more information from my latest client.

What info? A lot of client seems to be upset by previous weddings that they have attend. Luckily I gave them a different point of view and they had a memorable night for themselves. At first, they actually not wanted our band service but only the emcee service. Why? Because they told me the band from their friend's wedding was very noisy.

Mmm... good point! Let me discuss this matter with you then.

1. The charges of the band makes a big difference- I was told that the charges of their freind's wedding was below the charges of the proffesional band. Well, if the charges is cheaper and that of course will reflect the quality of the band. That doesn't mean a high charges band will suit you too. The solution is to find out more about the band you like to engage - by seeing their demos.

2. Band with a live drum - band with live drum will be noisy in a closure or small area. Strongly suggest if you are not inviting a lot of guest or having a very big capacity ballroom, please do not hire a band that has drum set. Try to hire a sequence band ( like us- demo at http://beanpro57.webs.com or professional jazz band that has more musicians ( because the music they played are not programmed so you need more musicians to play to have fuller support ). Of course, more musicians will be a wee bit more costly. Up to the budget that you can put up for your wedding then.

3. Karaoke/minus one singers - If you have gone to pub or chinese clubs for happy hour you should know what I'm trying to tell you then. The karaoke/minus one singers need to sing at a very loud volume for that is a custom for most of them.If you really like to have a loud performance then, that would be fine.

4. Sound system - The support of a good set of sound system is very important. Do consider to rent from a good sound provider. A good set of sound system makes a very big difference for the band/performer.

That's all I would like to share today and will try to update the next topic on musician's hardship as soon as possible. Bye!
