Kokomo (originally “Kokomo Blues”) is New Zealand's favourite blues 'n' roots band, establishing an enviable reputation through years of dynamic live shows and widely acclaimed songwriting. Kokomo has toured extensively throughout New Zealand, performing at the country’s major rock, blues, jazz and folk festivals.

The band has also released ten albums and a live concert DVD. Two are collections of traditional blues while others feature the band’s own songs. The band celebrated its 25th anniversary by headlining the National Jazz Festival where they sold out the 600 seat theatre. Most recently in Tauranga, Kokomo staged a sold-out concert "The Songs of Bob Dylan" in tribute to one of their musical icons.

After spending the last couple of months hunkered down in the studio recording a new album, Kokomo is very excited to be returning to Hamilton to present old favourites - from gutsy Delta blues to their own songs - as well as a set of as-yet-unreleased songs from the upcoming album.
