Koko-Jean & The Tonics offers you the best of four musically different worlds in a bomb full of soul, rhythm and groove. The band is made up of Koko-Jean, Anton Jarl, Victor Puertas and Dani Baraldés, four of the most critically acclaimed musicians on the Barcelona scene.
As front-woman we have Miss Koko-Jean Davis (former singer of The Excitements). Petite and delicate at first glance, don't be fooled by her appearance, because Koko is a whirlwind on stage. In the same way that she can move you with a ballad or the rawness of a blues, she can make you heat up in a few seconds with her rock'n'roll and soul.
On drums we have Anton Jarl (Mambo Jambo, Rambalaya, Flamingo Tours). The beast that we all know puts power to each beato with her elegant style and at the same time rocknroller.
Dani “Patillas” Baraldés is the chameleonic guitarist who makes you vibrate with the howls of his guitar. It is very likely that you have heard him with Los Mambo Jambo or accompanying Dani Nel·lo, La Banda del Zoco, Macaco, Jarabe de Palo or Rulo and La Contrabanda.
And finally we have the Hammond, Victor Puertas, one of the most renowned blues-men and harmonists in Catalonia. His swing and groove is an essential garment for this group. He can be seen playing blues with groups like the Suitcase Brothers, Big Mama Montse, Vermut Time and many international artists.
Koko-Jean & The Tonics make their recording debut in February 2020 with their EP Hairwhip, produced by Dani Nel lo, and in October of that same year the saxophonist participates as a guest on the EP Please Mr. Milton, a tribute to Little Milton with three versions of the best rhythm&blues.
In October 2021, the group will release their first full-length, Shaken & Stirred, which includes 12 new songs - most of them their own and some versions - recorded at Feelback Studio in Barcelona, with Marc Tena Aguade (The Excitements, Tea Servants, Nu Niles…) taking over production and mixing
As their first single, the group released 'Pattin' Juba', a song inspired by the Juba, a traditional dance of African-Haitian origin, whose function was to purge the spirit. The second single is the fun Never Said No.
