"Wry, satirical, apocalyptic ... rooted in acoustic traditions, though not bound by them”
Nick Bollinger NZ Listener
Welcome to the wonderful world of Kokomo...
Kokomo is a Kiwi blues & roots group, based in New Zealand's sunny Bay of Plenty.
Kokomo was formed in 1991, performing at New Zealand's major rock, art, jazz and blues festivals. The band has released a dozen albums and a full-length concert DVD.
This is also home for cult duo The Self-Righteous Brothers and other projects from team Kokomo.

In 2012 Kokomo backed the inimitable Richard O'Brien for his 70th Birthday concert at The Founders Theatre, Hamilton, New Zealand. Joining the band were keyboard wiz and MD for the night, Grant Winterburn, and sax player Rob Smith. The video (most of the musical portion of the show) is now on the LISTEN & WATCH page - 45 minutes of fantastic Richard O'Brien songs!
