Pete Reilly, Chris Orange and Manuel Kahura play smoky jazz 'n' blues over a 5 course long lunch at The Dunes.

Robin Wiedemer (Mulvey) had this to say when they played at her wedding: "Pete Reilly, Chris Orange, and Manuel Kahura, from the band Chocolate Fish, played at my wedding celebration at a vineyard on Waiheke Island. I was completely blown away by what I heard. Their music set an absolutely wonderful mood for the evening; the tone was entertaining, upbeat, relaxed, and unobtrusive. Pete, Chris and Manuel are extremely talented musicians, and were willing and able to learn several songs that my husband and I had requested just a week before the celebration. They covered music by Al Green, Nina Simone, Ben Harper, Billie Holiday, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Van Morrison, and others, and also performed fantastic original songs. With a fairly small party of 50 guests, we weren't sure if people would feel moved to dance, but the music definitely got them on their feet. We had such a great time dancing! I am a singer/songwriter, and the highlight of my evening was performing three original songs that I wrote for my husband, with the band's backing. We hadn't had an opportunity to practice beforehand, and I was incredibly impressed by their professional approach, musical talent, and ability to improvise and adapt to the new songs. Nearly all of the guests commented on how amazing the band was, the great atmosphere that the music created, and how exceptional it was to hear me perform songs with the band. I felt that they went above and beyond what was required to make our wedding unique, memorable and enjoyable, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you would like to contact me regarding this reference, please contact me at robinwiedemer@yahoo.com. All the best to the band! Keep up the great work."
