Bocca Musica is an international, award winning, band that is proud to be from Metro Detroit. Bocca has been featured from the Mid-West to Key West, from Canada to the Caribbean!
Bocca Musica (Music of the Mouth) was formed in the fall of 1996 and gradually transformed from an a cappella, Renaissance quintet into a bawdy musical comedy act with a focus on drinking songs! However, the multi-faceted band branched out into the world of traditional, Celtic, pirate and shanty music. They have been inspired to write many original tunes, in several different genres, and have a unique flair for arranging music. All this has led to their ongoing success!
Due to the eclectic style of the band, they have played a wide variety of venues including but not limited to:
Carnival Liberty Cruise Ship, Caribbean
