No regrets engaging Shili and Adi to be our singers and emcees for our wedding! From the start S&A were professional and super helpful. We were late for our very first zoom call and Shili still told us to have our dinner first beforehand - we were touched by her kind gesture and the team showed they truly care. As they found out that our wedding planner had quit on us and our wedding was nearing, they gave us a lot of tips and useful advice to guide us along the way and constantly reassured us that we will be fine. Their team’s service and response throughout our engagement was outstanding - something hard to find in this industry as many would just want to make a quick buck to close the deal. Their vibe and energy shows they’re really made for this. On the wedding day, S&A along with the violinist delivered an amazing performance and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the night. The duo kept everything together, ensuring everything went smoothly and entertained our guests. It would have been very different without you guys and we managed to wing it without our wedding planner. We had many guests enquiring afterwards who our singers/MC were as they were keen to engage them. Be assured that you will be in good hands - these guys are the best in the business and will not disappoint! Calvin & Samantha

Engaged John and Sam Chen from Merry Bees for our wedding live band. It was a cosier setting of 16 tables so the music from the live band really added to the overall great vibes of the place. John was also the emcee for the night and he did a wonderful job engaging the guests and making sure everyone had an enjoyable time. Highly recommend!

My wife and I engaged Shili & Adi from Merry Bees for our wedding and it was an extremely magical experience. Apart from charming our guests with their lovely voices and charisma, they doubled up as our emcees, entertaining our guests. They definitely left an impression on our guests as we had some friends who requested for us to connect them with Merry Bees for their personal engagement. Thank you & Well Done!

We had a wonderful time and huge thanks to ShiLi & Adi. They made all the difference and we had numerous guests sharing how much they enjoyed the duo! All the songs, especially the Disney songs were so magical. The song dedication was fun and many complimented how smoothly and well timed the songs were with our March in, cake cutting etc.. Thanks also to both of them for learning Fresh Eyes, was a lot of fun! Sounded better than the original artist 🤪 One of the best decisions at our wedding for sure - seeing guests spontaneously dance at the end was a pleasant surprise! 🎊 Looking forward to catching Adi and Shili more, possibly maybe at other events. We’re fans!

John and Jocelyn were great! Their music and singing were very soothing and pleasant to the ear creating a very warm and lovely atmosphere for my guests. The feedback that I received was that the music, singing and the songs chosen were very appropriate for the occasion. John was also a very good MC. He connected very well with the guests and with us, the hosts. John created a light and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone without being too over the top. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good MC to host their events.
