P & L will be getting married and the bridegroom’s reception will be held this coming April Fool’s day. A band comprising of Ledge, Wan As, Idge, the bridegroom himself and I started rehearsals for a performance at the reception.
Our first rehearsal revealed a lot of glitches due to extended periods away from our instruments (musical, not reproductive). A few of the songs that were supposed to be soft and subtle sounded too loud to be played at our home which incidentally shares very close proximity to the surau. Maybe the fact that we’ll be playing in the early afternoon (probably around 2.30) will compensate. Or maybe we should play 60’s Malay A-go-go instead.
The tentative songlist (in random order, and to be shortlisted later) :
- Begitu Indah – Padi
- Cintailah Cinta – Dewa
- Ternyata Cinta – Padi
- Qasidah Cinta – Dewa
- Poor Misguided Fool – Starsailor
- The Scientist – Coldplay
- Mahadewi – Padi
- Home – Michael Buble
- Seperti Kekasihku – Padi
- Patah – Padi
The band would also be really pleased if two more members of the bridegroom’s family currently unavailable for rehearsal to join us for songs. Suitable requests will be entertained. This means the earlier you get home the more practice hours you’ll get. This means you En. Chala and Yaya.
We hope to rent the equipment for the event from a friendly local studio. The studio has an excellent band comprised of seasoned musicians from the local wedding music circuit. As they are our friends as well, we would be greatly honoured if they would help bring the house (sans surau) down.
Drop by if you happen to be in town. We’ll try our very best to accommodate.
