‘A NEW GENERATION OF VOICE…’ Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald
Coco’s Lunch have ignited the hearts of children in schools and concert halls throughout Australia and Asia, with over 400 concerts and workshops with the Musica Viva In Schools program. With a rhythmical vitality, humour and musical sophistication that sets them apart from most children’s performers Coco’s Lunch have performed their magical interactive shows in sold-out seasons at the Sydney Opera House (Babies Proms), the Famous Spiegeltent, the Victorian Arts Centre and Brisbane Powerhouse for several consecutive years.
Their debut CD for children WALLY WOMBAT SHUFFLE (1998) was released to outstanding reviews by media and music educators alike and has since become a children’s classic. Though an independent release, the album has sold thousands of units at performances alone, with parents re-ordering second copies after originals have been played into extinction! Wally Wombat Shuffle features Coco’s Lunch hits such as Coco’s Samba, Hitch ‘Em Up, Baa Baa, Spin My Wheels, Dizzy Spin, Spooky and Wally Wombat Shuffle!
‘Truly inspirational! I would recommend them on any stage around the world…’
