Keyboard/vocalist and award-winning songwriter

Kate Ockenden, and her husband, versatile 6-

string bassist Geoff Ockenden, have a proven

track record of entertaining audiences together

with many different artists including The Real

Thing, Chaka Khan, Womack & Womack, The

Average White Band, and as full-time rhythm

section players for BGT Finalist Julian Smith.

In 2014, they began writing original high-energy

material in a jazz-funk style, inspired heavily by the music of Swedish jazz-fusion band Dirty Loops.

The third song penned in this style, ‘A Rainbow’, received high praise from Grammy-Award winning

blue-eyed soul artist Michael McDonald, whilst other songs from The KoGo Project’s debut album,

‘Do It’, have earned similar positive comments from Michael’s guitarist Bernie Chiaravalle, all

members of Shakatak, Average White Band’s saxophonist Freddy V, Kenny G’s bassist Vail

Johnson, and Jonah Nilsson of Dirty Loops.  They have also caught the ear of Chris Phillips at Jazz

FM, who has invited The KoGo Project to perform a live 2-track session on Tuesday 6th June 2017.

Kate and Geoff are also current media composers and radio producers for Childrens’ BBC

(CBeebies, CBBC) part-time music lecturers for the University of Worcester, regular contributors to

established music journal Sound on Sound, and parents to 2 young children.  Their high-energy

approach to life carries through to the stage, where they promise to deliver a fun performance full of

tight funky grooves and excellent musicianship alongside young virtuoso drummer and music

publisher Tony Robinson (drums) and brilliant UK session player Chris ‘Beebe’ Aldridge (sax).
