Kikosi Band


An entertaining and versatile professional band, Kikosi Band is a favourite for weddings, private parties, bars and clubs. This band features some of Liverpool’s finest musicians and grooves with an upbeat mix of Soul, Jazz and funky dance music.

Playing material from the 80s, 90s and today, Kikosi lays down a rich texture of music that combined with Hayli’s unique voice, deliver an exciting mix of entertainment.

Their versatile reperoire includes hits by Aretha Franklin, Duffy, Moloko, Jamiroqui, Sister Sledge, Carleen Anderson and Estelle, to name a few.

This listening experience is unforgettable. Kikosi members have worked with some of the biggest names in the Liverpool music scene. The band met while studying at Liverpool Hope University. After rehearsing together as part of their degree, they realised that something exciting had occurred and decided to form a professional band.

The band now have wide ranging careers within the music industry, including producing, teaching, composing, arranging, community arts and, of course, their work as Kikosi.


Kikosi are a fab and funky band who got our wedding guests grooving all evening. They are simply awesome and give 120%. They are great, professional entertainers and it felt like they were definitely playing for us rather than churning out a standard set for just another wedding. They made our celebration really special and memorable with some personal touches and all our guests loved them. Also, they are such lovely people, it was truly a pleasure dealing with them throughout! If we ever throw another party they would always be our number 1 band of choice. John and Gilly Bloomfield 2012.

Kikosi certainly are a band that doesn’t disappoint. They cater for all music preferences, are approachable, well presented and definitely likeable. They will fit in with all occasions and styles and come 100% recommended.”
