We could not have asked for anything more perfect than to have Cocos Lovers play for us on our special day.Their music makes you feel comfortable with an etheral feeling of love for life whilst listening to a good rhythm creating an invaluable stomping motion, you’re bound to want to get your wiggle on!We thoroughly love their music and wish Cocos Lovers all the best and fingers crossed they’ll win!
