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!


Hi Cheryl, John Just wanted to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding ceremony, we received so many lovely comments about how beautifully you played and what a lovely atmosphere you created in the church. Absolutely wonderful, thank you! Sarah and Luke Harris, Everdon Church, Northamptonshire


Cheryl, We would like to thank Ariella String Trio who played at the Sculpture Gallery on 9th July. The music was excellent and certainly added to the positive emotions of walking down the aisle and the whole atmosphere in the ceremony and at the reception. Our day was so special and holds so many great memories. We are both still walking on air. Thank you so so much. Regards, Jayne and Steve Cooper

There is no doubt that whenever there is a presence of four stringed instruments the same could be called a string quartet. Hence when somebody is looking for the right string quartet for hire in Manchester, apart from keeping the above in mind there are quite few other things that should also be considered. First and foremost whenever we talk about string quartet we usually associate it with one viola, one cello and two violins. Usually when music comes out from a well played string quartet it almost resembles that of a full sized orchestra. Hence, this is a very important point that should be kept in mind while going in for hiring these professionals. Any good four stringed performances usually comprise of a fast movement. This is followed by a slow movement. The next movement is perfect for dancing and again the music reaches the slow movement and the cycle goes on.

Things To Keep In Mind While Hiring These Professionals

When one is looking for string quartet hire in Manchester apart from ensuring the availability of the four music instruments as mentioned above, there are other important factors that should also be taken into account. These performers must be able to play the compositions of some of the best names like Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Mendelssohn and others. They should be able to play the most popular compositions of these great names.

They Can Help Keep A Big Audience Enthralled

There is no doubt that when the best of string quartet performers are chosen, it is quite possible that they will be able to keep even an audience of few hundred fully enthralled. This is a very important point that must be kept in mind while on seeking out the right string quarter for hire in Manchester. Though there are a few who might feel that this form of music is a bit outdated, there are thousands who relish listening to some of the best music played by these professionals.

Today’s string quartet teams have evolved with time. They are now quite capable of playing a number of stringed ensembles. They can also play traditional songs, light music, jazz, popular songs from famous albums, theme tunes, show tunes and quite a few other performances. However, the onus lies on the end customers to find the best of talents after going through the right due diligence process. This is a time consuming job but it has to be gone through.
