The Kokomotions were formed in the early 80s as a side project by innovator Billy Brockman, new to the area; long time musical partner Skip Haga; a well experienced rhythm section consisting of Steve Riggs and Eddie Hall; and wild sax man Ross Aliston. Unexpectedly, with it's high energy, great musicianship, New Orleans flavor and really fun and danceable music, the band immediately became a force in the Charlottesville and surrounding area and turned into a full time band. Skip, Billy and Eddie began writing strong material that fit right in to the band's feel and theycontinued through the 80's.
Well, they're back and much more experienced individually, playing the best of the old material and mixing in new. It's just as much fun as it always was. http://www.reverbnation.com/thekokomotions
