Coco’s Lunch has long been recognised as a pioneer in the composition and performance of vocal music.

The band’s multi-award-winning singer-songwriters have won the hearts of audiences around the globe for over two decades with soulful compositions that offer a pure celebration of the human voice – rich, intricate and utterly captivating.

Experience the beauty of five voices in full flight, in songs that glisten with rich jazz harmony, fiery vocal percussion and world-class improvisation. Augmented by elegant stagecraft and heartfelt stories, Coco’s Lunch truly is one of Australia’s ‘national treasures’ (Herald Sun).
