Hot Chocolate are one of the most successful bands ever to come out of the 70's. Formed in Brixton, London, England in 1968, members of the group included Errol Brown, Tony Connor, Larry Ferguson, Harvey Hinsley, Patrick Olive and Tony Wilson.
In 1970 Hot Chocolate, with Errol Brown as lead singer, released their first record entitled "Love Is Life" which reached number 6 in the charts. This was the start of a fifteen year career for the group who amassed a total of over 30 hits and also became the only group in the UK to have a hit for fifteen consecutive years.
The band found a new singer Greg Bannis and keyboard players Andy Smith & Steve Ansell. Since 1992, the band has enjoyed years of continued success touring all around the world performing to many thousands of fans who love the music of Hot Chocolate. In 1997 the classic single "You Sexy Thing" reached number one in the charts after it was featured in the movie 'The Full Monty' and a new Hot Chocolate 'Greatest Hits' compilation released in October 1997 reached number 10 in the album charts.
In 2010 singer Kennie Simon replaced Greg Bannis on vocals creating what many are saying is the best sound ever.
