A Hideaway debut for one of the all time great British soul and groove line-ups, the mighty KOKOMO!
British soul pioneers, Kokomo, built their reputation and loyal following through the immensity of their live shows. Featuring some of UK’s finest musicians and vocalists, recruited from bands such as Arrival, Joe Cocker’s Grease Band and King Crimson, all sharing a deep passion for American Soul music, Kokomo were in a class of their own and in 1975 took London by storm!
They joined the seminal ‘Naughty Rhythms’ tour alongside Dr Feelgood and Chilli Willi & the Red Hot Peppers, and the band’s debut album is now considered a classic among collectors.
A series of packed reunion gigs in 2014 with seven of the ten original members proved that Kokomo’s reputation as one of the finest 'groove' units ever to come out of this country remains largely intact. In November 2015 Kokomo were back with their old touring partners - the Average White Band in "Soul Summit" that sold out London’s Royal Festival Hall. With the fire reignited, this show promises to reaffirm Kokomo’s position as a powerhouse of live 70s soul.
