"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!"
