About Us

KOKOMO is and has been the most popular private party band in Kansas City for any type of private party adapting and evolving as the times change.  The band features four lead vocalists in an incomparable ensemble fashion, a driving rhythm section and superb soloists who play all the songs you want to hear.  The repertoire is broad.  It ranges from from older classics by such artists as Frank Sinatra, Aretha and Michael Buble to newer, more contemporary material from Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5 and tons of things in between - especially Motown and R&B favorites by Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and the list goes on & on!  There is truly something for everyone at a KOKOMO party!  It is the perfect mix of new and unmatched experience.
But post-pandemic it all changed again taking everything up a couple of levels.  We were fortunate enough to land not one, but two incredible vocalists making our vocal front line the best ever in Town.  Kansas Citian Luke Minx (just back from stints in New York & LA) and the most dynamic female vocalist in Kansas City, Karen Davis, have joined Emmett Lee on the front line for something special you have to hear and see to believe.

KOKOMO has achieved recognition in Kansas City and throughout the Midwest that no other band ever has.  The Band has been voted Kansas City's Best Band by The Independent Magazine, has been nominated one of the Top 100 Bands in the USA by Modern Bride Magazine and founding member Jeff Moffet has been inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame.

KOKOMO began as a College dance and party band.  After moving to Kansas City the two owner/operators, Jeff Moffet and Jeff Wright (the Jeffs), crafted a group that specializes in driving the private party dance floor and keeping the entire event engaged. 

You will find KOKOMO playing fun music for fun clients at the best wedding receptions, civic events, company and country club parties in Kansas City!
