Kokobola / Press

“Hey Frank, I did get a great report on the show! When are you interested in coming back? I’d also love... you... at the White Eagle! It works much more like a traditional rock club. Alex Wideman McMenamins Corporate Booker Alex.Wideman@mcmenamins.com" Alex Wideman, booking agent for Oregon's McMenamins establishment's music has stated that their Salem Boone's Treasury lounge staff will immediately complain about bands that play there if the musicianship or vibe is lacking, and dislikes are fairly common. The other kinds of responses, where they're really high on the music, are pretty rare. The staff told Alex that they truly enjoyed the atmosphere and vibe that Kokobola offers. The manager stated that the group maintains a completely comfortable and appropriate musical volume, and he praised Kokobola's high level of musicianship. Alex said it was really refreshing to hear that they thought highly of us. Feel free to contact Mr. Wideman as a reference for Kokobola.”

“Here are some quotes from some savvy fans: “I should mention to all reading this that Kokobola is NOT a cover band. They're just so good you'll find yourself wondering why they sound familiar. You'll hear lots of influences in their work, from pure jazz, to fusion, to jam, to bluegrass…” “After hearing my friend Frank Sprouse, of Kokobola, play last week, I spent this morning searching the Internet for articles discussing the guitar work in Steely Dan's "King of the World." (Frank's style really calls this tune to mind)… If you're a Steely Dan fan, do yourself a favor and come hear Frank, and the rest of Kokobola play this coming Tuesday evening” “If you’re in Portland, don’t miss this. These guys are incredible. Best new music I heard in 2012. Hand down.” 3 FB Posts written by Jason Johnson, music writer, Eugene Register Guard “Great show.... Someone was asking me to describe Kokobola's music and I said ‘Steely Dead’". Tony Proveaux, Owner-Pro Arts”
