Koko Conley has been CopyRightedⒸ since 1990, and a proud ASCAP Member since 1999. And she hales from the great state of Georgia! But the great mid west is her adopted home! However, Ms Conley's musical career started out on the east coast in the mid 70's. She was a backup vocalist. And during that time period, she met & became a lead vocalist with "The Rahni Harris Trio". A R&B Gospel singing group out of Hartford Ct. Koko performed with Rahni Harris, from late 1976 through 1978! Harris is better known today as Rahni Song, Owner & Producer of, Y3K Music! Ms Conley performed with Mr Harris through out Hartford Ct., Rhode Island and New York! With Rahni, Koko also recorded a contemporary Christian song titled, " I've Got A Fantastic High ". And although the song was never Nationally released. 'I've Got A Fantastic High', & some of their other works received great applause. And received extended air play on Hartford's radio station, WKND FM. In 1978 the group parted ways. But Koko Conley & Rahni Song remains very close friends to this day!

From 1994 through 2001. In Las Vegas, Nevada, Koko Conley entertained packed audiences, performing with her DJ & professional backing tracks at fine Casinos and Hotel lounges! During her stay in Vegas, she also brought her band from Kansas City to perform with her in Las Vegas! The band parted ways. But Koko continues to move forward with her musical career, performing with professionally arranged music. Her Arranger, the multi-talented, Mark Jeffery Dye, from Saint PetersBurg, Florida has been Ms. Conley's arranger for many years! Dye also operates his own recording studio, Dye'Namics Recording Studio! And he's written countless of compilations! Mark Jeffrey Dye also produced & wrote musical projects for Nick Carter of The Back Street Boys titled, 'Before The Backstreet Boys'. You can view Dye's work with Carter at: http://www.amazon.com/Nick-Carter-BEFORE-Backstreet-1989-1993/dp/B00006LFFF .

And ironically, before meeting her arranger Mark Jeffrey Dye in 1993. Koko actually met the Backstreet Boys in the Historic Church Street District in Orlando Fl. in 1989. It was during the filming of one of her music videos with her then musical group, 'A Piece Of The Action! And a year later, she met and talked about music with Brian Littrell at the Long John Silver's Restaurant where Brian worked (before The Backstreet Boys made it into stardom!).
In 1978, Koko Conley met & became good friends with some of the band members of 'The Chairmen of The Board', the beach music group!

Through out the years: Ms. Conley has been a TV & a radio host! While residing in Florida, she hosted & starred in her own weekly T.V. show titled, "Koko's Korner"! A variety showcase, filmed live inside (the then) Maxie's Restaurant & Lounge, at the Holiday Inn Resort Hotel in Madeira Beach, Fl.. Koko Conley was front woman for the R&B singing group, "A Piece of The Action" in Tampa Bay, Fl. The R&B music group did music videos & also had a weekly TV show! And both of Koko Conley's shows, 'Koko's Korner' & 'A Piece Of The Action' video shows, aired weekly on Paragon Cable. 'A Piece of The Action' aired after the 'Midnight at The Apollo', before 'The Arsenio Hall Show'.
