Duos, Kokomo, Perth

KOKOMO

Kokomo Head

Leanne Harvey and Aaron Woolley have performed together as KOKOMO - as far back as the defence of the America's Cup here in Perth in the late 80's and the opening of the then new Burswood Casino.

KOKOMO back then was a 6 piece unit and played as Resident band at the Casino for the first 6 months after its opening. A further One year residency at THE SUNSET CLUB at the then new 'Hilary's Marina' followed, (as a 5 piece unit), supporting and backing many international acts.

Over the years since that time they have worked successfully as a duo at many local venues as well as in South East Asia. Aaron eventually moved back to the UK in the mid 90's and worked as a solo artist whilst Leanne married and had a family, and studied to achieve her bachelor of music degree.

She teaches at a renowned private school and is regarded in high esteem for her 'trumpet tone and playing expertise' not only in contemporary music - but also 'classically' where she has worked with the WASO and the Hills Orchestra as 1st trumpet on a number of occasions.

Besides KOKOMO - Aaron has performed with many local bands over the years as well as being with the English hit recording group 'The Tremolo's' for 2 years in the mid 70's.

Together Leanne and Aaron produce a great sound as well as being highly entertaining and good fun - either using 'light sequenced backings' to enhance their performance or they can work totally 'unplugged' in a more 'laid back setting' depending on the venue and what is required.

Their repertoire focuses on the Classic songs of the 60's - featuring Leanne singing such songs as
Puppet on a String - Always Something there to remind me - SANDI SHAW.

Many hits from the MOTOWN era such as
Baby Love - Where did our love Go - My Guy - Stop in the Name of Love - You Keep Me Hanging On - Tell Him - I Want You Back - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow etc

The Carpenters - Close to You - Super Star - We've only Just begun - etc

Moving onto the 70's and 80's they perform an array of material from
The Pretenders - The Eurhythmics - Edie Brickell - Motels - Linda Ronstadt - Pat Benatar.

Aaron Woolley adds many great classics from The Beatles - Kinks - Searchers - Buddy Holly - Elvis - all great 60's material plus many 'Rock n Roll classics' also featuring many Surf Guitar Classics - from The Ventures - The Shadows etc.

Kokomo Mid

On the more laid back side - KOKOMO can perform many great 'Jazz and mellow songs' ideal for a dinner party/corporate setting - where the emphasis is on pleasant listening whilst people eat and just enjoy an evening relaxing etc.
