The Chocolate Watchband was an American psychedelic rock and garage rock band formed in San Jose, California, United States, in 1965. The band had broken up indefinitely by 1970 but then reunited in 1999 at a 66/99 show organized by Mike Stax in San Diego. They continue to play today at garage rock shows in Europe as well as the United States with Little Steven and the Electric Prunes. The band's music was largely described as a blend of 1960s-style garage rock and psychedelic rock that was influenced heavily by the Rolling Stones. The group's early music appeared to contain blues influences, and later it developed psychedelic elements through use of instrumental experimentation. Ed Cobb was their producer. The band appeared in the 1967 films Riot on Sunset Strip and The Love-Ins.
