Other Event - Colchester, Essex

My dear mother will be 60 this Friday 13th January 2017. As such our rather big immediate family (Mother, her; Husband, 6 sons, three granddaughters, one grandson & four daughter-in-laws) will be getting together for a dinner at The Brasserie in The Wivenhoe House Hotel that evening. Now, I am the fourth son of the six and the only one who lives outside the UK, in San Francisco, California. I will be flying in to surprise everybody. Since they are somewhat used to my surprises at this point in my 32 years on the planet, I wanted to quite literally, up the tempo! That's where I hope you can come in. I'd love (and more importantly my mother would) if I could get a few band (two-five) members to play one song as I walk over and surprise my family while they are seated at the dinner table in the brasserie. Ideally, the few band members would play "I love to Boogie by T-Rex" but, in actual fact anything from that to Stand by Me - Beatles to 50 cent In Da Club to Uptown Funk will be more than fantastic! The flight has done a fine number on my wallet, but I am preparred to compensate all musicians involved. I realise it's short notice, but this idea just hit me like a thunderbolt and I had to at least try to make it come to fruition.

What event planners say about our suppliers


Doctor Chocolate were asked to play at the Concorde Club in Southampton for the Halloween Celebrations on 31st October 2015. Doctor Chocolate are based in and around Bristol but travel all over the UK – playing at parties and celebrations wherever there is a need for a fantastic party band! This was a good 3 hours drive there and back but what a lovely reception when the band arrived – the hotel had put out coffees ready for the bands arrival, provided sandwiches, soft drinks and fries during the break and were really helpful and friendly. The crowd started to arrive and band members peaked out to see a lot of them were in ballgowns and suits – not many were arriving in halloween costume – as the band had been asked to wear halloween outfits – we didn’t have a back-up on this occasion (one to remember for future years!). But on a second peak a crowd of guests arrived in full fancy dress and makeup so we knew we would fit right in. As well as the Doctor Chocolate party sets we included Ghostbusters and Thriller for this night – we can also add in other halloween numbers if required. If you have an event coming up and need us to theme it then just ask! Christmas is coming and we have quite a few Christmas songs in our repertoire too!


We booked Halos at short notice - not only were they easy to book and to discuss arrangements with but on the day our guests loved them. They sound great, the songs they played suited our request and they were very presentable. I'd highly recommend!
