Dr Coocachoo is a Sydney based newgrass band formed in July 2018 by experienced multiinstrumentalist
musicians. We explore the vocal & jazz diversity of the bluegrass genre, showcasing improvisation, 4 part harmony, and percussive dynamics to build excitement and tension to inspire and entertain others.
We are influenced by the music of Aubrey Haynie, Uncle Earl, The Jaywalkers, The Stanley Brothers, The Straybirds, The Johnson Mountain Boys, and Kenny Baker, and enjoy the bluegrass tradition of reinventing acoustic string band music on beautiful instruments, jamming, and creating novel sounds.
