From: philippe.xxx@palyja.co.id

Hello,
My name is Philippe, I'm french and I have been living in Jakarta for the last 3 years. I work for PALYJA, the private partner of PAM Jaya (Perusahaan Daerah Air Minum) for western Jakarta.
Yesterday night, I was invited to the wedding party of Elquino & Viona . I had the chance to listen to your band. I'm a fan of jazz, fusion & jazzy music and let me congratulate you for your performance (your version of just two of us from Groover Washington was just brilliant !).
I know that it is not always easy to play for people who don't really listen ....
Having said that, there were definitively a lot of people paying attention to your music . I sometimes organize gigs in my home with other orang bule (Prancis) in Kemang (I have a pop/rock band and I play guitar as an amateur) and I would be happy to contact your band sometimes in the future.
I organized in the past a gig with a few indonesian jazz musicians. In the meantime, I'm trying to get in touch with Sherin (is it the right spelling ?) your singer that I briefly met yesterday.
One more time, all my congratulation for yesterday
Terima kasih banyak

Lounge Piano

Piano Bar/Piano Lounge

A piano bar (also known as a piano lounge) consists of a piano played by a professional musician, located in a cocktail lounge, bar, hotel lobby, or office building lobby. Usually the pianist receives tips in a jar or basket on or near the piano, especially from patrons requesting a song. Some piano bars feature a baby grand or grand piano surrounded by stools for patrons (or, somewhat humorously, an upright piano covered by a counter that makes it appear to be a grand piano). Others have a bar surrounding the piano or keyboard.
There are different types of piano bars:
"instrumental only"
: the professional piano/keyboard player plays strictly instrumental music, which is usually classical, semi-classical, or "easy listening"; this type of piano bar is often found in hotel lobby lounges or "fine dining" restaurants; "
only the musician sings": the professional pianist sings to his/her accompaniment, usually on microphone, but no other singers are generally allowed; "the musician and waitpersons sing": the professional musician sings and also invites waitpersons to sing solos; "sing-along": patrons surrounding the pianist sing as a group, usually without any microphones, often preferring "standards" and "Jazzy tunes", or very old songs like "Beyond The Sea", "I Love You For Sentimental Reason", etc., but in some cases pop or rock;
"dueling pianos": usually on stage with two grand pianos, each played by a professional player who sings and entertains; humor and audience participation are prevalent; usually these types of piano bars have substantial sound systems, and most of the songs performed are rock and roll, "classic rock", blues, R&B, or country, played at very high volume. Howl at the Moon Piano Bar and Shout House Dueling Pianos are popular chains of this type of piano bar;

"open mic": individual patrons sing (on microphone) to the accompaniment of the professional musician; in some ways, this type of piano bar is like karaoke, except that the music is live and dynamic, and there are usually no lyrics available (although some piano bar players do supply some lyrics); like karaoke, the songs performed may cover a wide, eclectic range ("show tunes", "standards" from the 1920's forward, jazz, country, R&B, rock'n'roll, blues, folk, soul, disco, hip-hop, etc.); the patron singers are usually called to the microphone in a rotating order; often, each singer is allowed 2 or 3 songs each time he/she is called to perform; and "combination": some piano bars include the characteristics of two or more of the above, either on different nights or combined on the same night. For instance, at a "sing along" piano bar, a patron or wait person might sing a solo from time to time. Before becoming famous, Billy Joel sometimes worked as a piano bar performer. His classic hit "Piano Man" is based on his experiences as a piano bar player.
This kind of music is nowdays become a trend in mostly International Wedding worldwide.

Chamber Music


Chamber Music is a form of classical music(nowdays people also play pop music), written for a small group of instruments which traditionally could be accommodated in a palace chamber. Most broadly, it includes any "art music" that is performed by a small number of performers with one performer to a part. The word "chamber" signifies that the music can be performed in a small room, often in a private salon with an intimate atmosphere. However, it usually does not include, by definition, solo instrument performances.

Wedding Music - A Few Tips

Wedding Music - A few top tips
1.It's good to book early, but there's no point in booking musicians too far in advance.
Bands do break up, get offered six month residencies or change personnel, and don't forget that that singer with the great voice might be the proud mother of week-old triplets by your wedding day! If you start booking a year in advance, you'll still have a very wide selection of bands from which to choose.

2.Be absolutely clear as to what you want the musicians to do.
You may have read about the unfortunate bride who wanted the theme music from Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves at her wedding. Her local organist, who was not a good player, was unable to play that piece but decided instead to play what he thought was a suitable alternative. The bride therefore found herself walking down the aisle to the strains of Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen!

3.Write everything down, and ask for written confirmation from the performers.
It's a good idea to ask the musicians to send you two signed contracts, one for you to keep and the other to sign and return to them. Alternatively, you may like to send contracts or letters of engagement to the musicians, asking them to sign and return one to you. The letter/contract should specify at least the venue (with directions), date and time, what the parties are providing (size of band? lighting? food? PA? electricity? etc), repertoire, contact names and numbers, fees and payment terms, and cancellation procedure and charges. All too complicated? Book through us and save yourself a headache!

4.Be realistic (part 1)
It's important to take lots of care in your planning, and to do everything you can to ensure that everything runs smoothly. However, if on the day you worry about every last detail and that all timings are adhered to rigorously, you'll have a miserable time! Some timings are important - you need to know when the musicians are going to arrive, and they need to know the latest time you'll want them to play, for example - but it's generally better to decide on a broad timetable and let the musicians know that, within this, flexibility on both sides is the watchword!

5.Be realistic (part 2)
Most bridal couples have a good idea of what they consider to be "good" music, and quite rightly want to have considerable input into the music that their band or DJ plays. But an experienced band or DJ will have a good idea what will or won't work at a wedding, and the sensible bridal couple, rather than specifying a definite and restrictive playlist, will seek to work with the band or DJ to agree on a broad format for the evening's entertainment, will agree a few specific requests with the band/DJ, but will leave the band/DJ to fill in the gaps. If you want to specify lots of specific tracks, book a DJ, not a band!

6.Remember that most engagements arise by word of mouth and recommendation, so it is in the band or DJ's interest to make sure that you're happy!
