About


Coco Xpress is a 4 or 5 piece lively and entertaining Latin Salsa and Merengue band, playing popular modern salsa and merengue dance hits.

They are based in London but have travelled all over the world, from Dublin to Dubai! Coco Xpress started with a bang 20 years ago in 1998, playing a residency at a salsa club in the Mediterranean, and on their return to London they rapidly grew in fame, playing weekly at all of the UK's top dance venues and at many private, corporate and wedding party events.

Hailed as one of London's 2 hottest salsa bands for the last 15 years, Coco Xpress frequently appear at all the festivals, salsa events and club nights on the Latin scene.
 
Playing Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cha Cha, Bugaloo, Cumbia,  Lambada and also Latin-Pop (including some chart songs in Salsa style) - representing all the popular Latino rhythms and countries, from Cuba to Colombia via Santo Domingo, this band will guarantee an excellent night's entertainment, for top dancers and left-footed tropical party-goers alike.
 
One of the reasons Coco Xpress is so loved by its fans is that they always have the same line-up of great musicians, playing with great swing and without sheet music... add to this slick choreography and a great rapport with the crowd!
 
Coco Xpress features Ecuadorian singer Jorge who is not only the owner of a rich voice but also an entertaining manner and some slick dance routines. Also, in the front line is female alto sax/ flute player/ singer Nina: not only a strong musician but also a smooth dancer - to make the band as easy on the eyes as it is on the ears! The line-up is rounded off with Dominican Wilson "El Diablo" - a maniacal devil at the piano, and Biembo from the Dominican Republic- swinging on bass guitar/ vocals. Extra line-ups include Colombian Alejandro on conga drums. All in all, an extremely talented group of musicians who know that on-stage presentation and lively performance is every bit as important as musicianship.
 
Coco Xpress can play 100% salsa music when requested, but their unique line-up guarantees the best genuine Merengue music of any band in the UK, as they have 2 Dominican musicians - from the home of Merengue music - the Dominican Republic. Many newcomers to Latin music find merengue music much more enjoyable and accessible - and easy to dance to - than Salsa, and just as much fun!!

    Coco Xpress is equally suitable for parties, weddings (more than 400 played so far) and corporate events as it is for full-on Salsa dance nights, and will bring a repertoire of songs suitable for whichever occasion. They can also provide background music between sets, professional dancers or displays, dance classes, DJ's and other ideas to make the evening swing. They are based in London, with frequent appearances in the Capital's busiest salsa venues, but will travel anywhere, and have performed for 3 months on a luxury cruise liner all around South America to Rio and on many other cruises in the Caribbean and Europe!
