Subject: re - Equator Festival - Dynamic Salsa group: Coco Xpress - May 19th
Equator Festival will open its Chatham edition with the lively and entertaining Latin band, Coco Xpress.
Coco Xpress started with a bang 13 years ago in 1998, and are now one of the UK's favourite Latin bands, performing at many festivals, salsa clubs and other events. The band members hail from Ecuador, Dominican Republic and Colombia.
In 2010, they were named "the face of BRUGAL Dominican Republic Rum", following a 2 day promotion and advert filmed at Heathrow Airport's World Duty Free! You can see them performing on the Duty Free video wall screens at all UK airports nationwide!
Playing Salsa, Merengue, Bugaloo, bachata, Cha Cha Cha, and more - 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.
"A big thank you to you and Coco Xpress for a brilliant performance on the bandstand at the Battersea Park Festival last weekend. You were the grand finale to a great weekend of music and sent everyone home on a massive high.
PS. On my way out of Battersea Park I saw some of the audiences still Salsa-ing!"
