Beautiful Wedding at Yeo Valley 2018

Doctor Chocolate played for a Katie and Harry’s wedding  on a sunny Saturday in 2018.

The venue isn’t a wedding venue at all, it’s the headquarters for Yeo Valley enterprises in Somerset and is an excellent place to work and learn.  They hold lots of events throughout the year for children and adults but they also have a fantastic restaurant onsite too which is open to the public.  You’ll have to book though as there is a 3-month waiting list for breakfast and lunches at Yeo Valley HQ. It’s a beautiful venue in the hills of Chew Valley and overlooks stunning countryside and occasionally, just occasionally, they open their doors for private events or weddings.

The venue is stunning! The food for the band was simply divine and the guests?  There is just one word for the guests and that is AWESOME!

From the moment the band started with a Tina Turner rendition of Hold On I’m Coming, that dance floor filled up quicker than a leak in the Titantic! They knew EVERY word for EVERY song and it was SUCH a fantastic evening!

We were so pleased to be the wedding band for Katie and Harry who were so totally and obviously utterly devoted to each other that much was obvious.

So it was lovely to wake up on a sunny Sunday morning to find a lovely thank you from the mother of the bride nestling in our email in-box.  It’s lovely to get thank you’s from our clients who really love what we do and are so appreciative of great music and a great party/wedding band.  (That’s us by the way… Doctor Chocolate! 9 piece band playing 100% live – videos to follow!)

Hi Sarah.

Lynne Jarman here. (Kate’s mum from Saturday at Yeo Valley.)

I just wanted to thank you all for the fantastic evening that you gave everybody at the reception on Saturday. It was wonderful! I meant to pop over and say hello but just seemed to get swept away by the event.

From the band’s warm up (which gave us a lovely inkling of what was to come) to the whole evening of great music that nobody could resist dancing to, we ALL had a great party which the band helped to make.

Many thanks again!

Well Lynne, Katie, Harry and ALL the guests from Saturday night – we had an absolute blast and it was an honour to be your wedding band and celebrate with you all.

Party Band in Nantwich in 2018

Doctor Chocolate played at the Webbington Hotel for Phil and Marianne’s wedding a few year’s ago. They had a great time, so great in fact, that they booked us to play for Marianne’s surprise birthday party in Cheshire 5 year’s ago.  So, we were well chuffed to have another email from Phil asking us to play for Mariannes birthday party again in 2018.

Doctor Chocolate travelled to Nantwich and set up in the venue.  Everything was top secret and how everyone managed to keep the surprise quiet is beyond us!  All guests arrived early and were ready for Marianne’s arrival and were in the mood for a party.  Hot food was provided by way of THE most delicious curry and the band were well looked after by Phil with our staying overnight in a nearby hotel.

Everyone had a brilliant night and we’re pleased to say that the dance floor was full all evening and some of the moves they were busting out were definitely new to the band!  We even had paper aeroplanes thrown at us whilst on stage which said “BEST BAND EVER” all over them!  Well, we can’t agree more!

This is the lovely message we had this week from Phil to thank the band.  It’s always lovely to get a thank you from a client and this is now our third thank you from Phil and Marianne.


Oh my. What a night. Love you guys. It was the perfect night, which you all made entirely possible, from the entrance to the whole show!!

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!

Can’t thank you enough. Glad the b&b was ok. The least we could do. Hope you made it home safely!!!

Everyone raved about you. You’re an amazing group of people. Talented, yet crazy, you’re amazing. Thank you

Hopefully see you again soon

Phil xxxxx

Thank yous for 2016

Doctor Chocolate were delighted to be entered into the South West Wedding Awards for 2016 and even more delighted to reach the finalists stage.  We didn’t win.  But we did receive a copy of all the lovely testimonials that our previous clients had sent in to the awards and they were lovely to read.

“They were the ultimate professionals from taking my initial enquiry through to packing up at the end of the event and all the hundreds I sent them in between! They performed with panache in less than idea environment. They were flexible then timings went to pot and were such fun! They really did get everyone dancing even those that are confirmed ‘don’t dance’ers! All our guests were mightily impressed and probably talked about them long after all the fuss about the bride and groom died down! Really, everyone at our wedding, including the venue owners had nothing but praise for these guys! Totally worth the expense!”

“The most accommodating fantastic group I have ever seen, they worked with us to ensure our guests enjoyed a fantastic evenings entertainment”

“Sarah and the band of DR Chocolate really make your wedding go with a swing. Our wedding guests were constantly on the dance floor.  Sarah has an abundance of energy and ensures that you receive 150% of fun, perfection and great musicians. They are a fantastic band that We would highly recommend DR chocolate as they never fail to provide 5 star entertainment.”

“Absolutely outstanding band, very professional, great fun & fabulous musicians. We all had a brilliant night with Doctor Chocolate”

“Great band everyone loved them and they were amazing to deal with. Really got the party going.”

“Absolutely fabulous band – great interaction with all the party goers and they create a brilliant atmosphere.  Everyone that attended our wedding were really impressed.  The Booking process and communication with the band made it very easy and stress-free.”

“Amazing! We couldn’t have asked for more, especially working with my husband to practice the first ‘song’.”

“Real good party band Great night”

“Absolutely amazing from first phone call to the night Their crowd interaction and experience was second to none and also dealt with a fussy venue owner with a limiter Excellent musical ability and singing Truly a brilliant wedding band!”

“Excellent 9 piece band.  Brilliant feedback from all the guests at the wedding reception. A most memorable evening had by all and the Dr Chocolate band were very professional and slick in their performance.  A great night!”

Thank you from Holly & Graham July 2016

Here’s a lovely photo of our lovely bride, Holly, from Saturday night who joined us up on the stage and certainly gave it some welly on vocals with the band.  Awesome stuff. And here’s a lovely thank you we received the next morning…

“Thank you a million zillion you were amazing and you now have an even bigger fan club. Graham and I loved every minute. Thank you for making it so fun filled and your band. Hope you can relax today. Thank you xx”  Holly & Graham

Well we had a fantastic evening too and thank you both for inviting Doctor Chocolate to be your wedding band!

Although, Sarah’s dress had a wardrobe malfunction just before going on stage as the zipper in the dress broke completely.  Sarah must have been a boy scout in a previous life as she had another 3 dresses in the suitcase “just in case”.  On this occasion she went for the Bet Lynch option of a tiger print dress – she was just missing the earings!

Thank you from Andy & Jill July 2016

Well, as you all know, Doctor Chocolate is a fabulous wedding band and we had the pleasure of playing for Andy & Jill’s evening celebrations as part of their wedding day in July 2016 near the city of Exeter.

Andy and Jill had set up a huge marquee in a field behind their public house and invited, what appeared to be, the entire village to help them celebrate their wedding in style.  It was a mad evening and Doctor Chocolate ensured that we kept the dancefloor packed all night long with our versions of songs from the 1960’s to present day chart numbers – all performed with style and passion!  Our sets contain the best music and with our fab brass section our sound is full and lively so the dance floor was of course rammed with some pretty funky dancing styles and lots of audience interaction too!  A truly fabulous evening and we had an absolute blast!

This was the thank you we received the very next morning….

“To Sarah and all the band, thank you for a truly fabulous night – wow, you were brilliant – far better than we could have hoped. Everyone loved you. The atmosphere was amazing and you really made our day complete. Thank you again xxxxx”  Andy & Jill

The thank you’s didn’t stop there though…… following the event and adding a picture on our Facebook Page other guests popped up and commented too…

Jacqueline Roberts Was a brilliant night, and you all were fanbloodytastic xx

Gill Evely No word to describe but fantastic thank you .x

Young Farmers – Caln – 2015

Hi Doctor Chocolate
Thank you for playing at the Culm Valley Young Farmers Party! It was fantastic night and since the ball I have had so many people comment on how great a night it was. You guys did such a good job, you brought the whole thing to life and made it a night to remember which was just what we needed after having to move sites this year and all the stresses that came with it!

Gemma Coles

Thank you Gemma! Wow! What a great night.  There were nearly 800 young farmers in the biggest marquee in the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere which looked superb!  The band’s changing room was a caravan which was unusual but welcome!  Everyone looked amazing and once the band started there was a rush to the dance floor and the next minute it was full of revellers who sang and danced their hearts out for the remainder of the evening!  What a great crowd!   We’ve got some great video footage of everyone that we will upload soon!

Santander Charity Event 2015

Hi Doctor Chocolate,

Just wanted to send an email to say how Fantastic the band were on Saturday night, I don’t think I saw an empty dance floor all night, your band was truly remarkable and worth every penny.

Kind regards

Martin and Liz

Anonymous Thank you 2015

Wow – Doctor Chocolate received a lovely telephone call from a lady who came along to the Santander Charity Event on the Grand Pier on Saturday 12th September!

She rang to say how much she enjoyed the event and that she thought the band were fantastic! That the dance floor was packed all evening and the songs played were spot on. She thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the music/fun and energetic musicians on stage.

We were so taken aback by the loveliness of the conversation we forgot to take her name! So – whoever you are – thank you for taking the time out to call us and say thank you – it is much appreciated!
