Kokomo were renowned as Britain's finest funk band of the mid-'70s, a genuine live experience, which makes their 1975 eponymous debut a bit of a shock: there's no live feel here, only slick studio gloss that brings the album closer to the sunbleached sounds of the American West Coast than the R&B-vamping working bands that. populated the pub rock circuit Kokomo frequented
Kokomo" is a song written by John Phillips, Scott McKenzie, Mike Love, and Terry Melcher and recorded by American rock band the Beach Boys. Its lyrics describe two lovers taking a trip to a relaxing place on Kokomo, an island off the Florida Keys. It was released as a single on July 18, 1988, by Elektra Records and became a No. 1 Hit in the United States, Japan, and Australia (where it topped for about two months). populated the pub rock circuit Kokomo frequented. Kokomo yo-yos between percolating funk that flirts with disco – à la the Average White Band – and the smoothest of soft rock, everything sounding mellow and relaxed even when the tempo revs up, as it does.
British soul pioneers, Kokomo, built their reputation and loyal following with awesome live shows. A series of packed reunion gigs since 2014 has proved that the band is grooving as well as ever. This led to the Soul Summit, with old touring partners the Average White Band, that sold out the Royal Festival Hall in 2015 and Bristol Colston Hall in 2017. Read full bio. Kokomo were fantastic and got a great reaction from the crowd. We look forward to having them back when we re-open. Todd Willis, Artistic Director, Bristol Colston Hall.
