"Are you planning a 'Jimmy Buffet' type theme night and in need of an excellent cover band? Well, I have one for you, the 'Coco Loco Band'!!!!! I highly recommend them. They will be returning for the second time in three years for our annual Jimmy Buffet night on Saturday, July 15, 2006. We booked them for the first time in 2004 and missed out on them in 2005 and our fans noticed the absence with many requesting Coco Loco return in 2006. We listened and they are back."

"Just wanted to write a quick note to express my company's satisfaction with TJ and the Coco Loco Band. My company, Crown Imports, has been hiring TJ and his band for that past 5 years to play at our annual party during the National Restaurant Show in Chicago. Our customers and even our competitors look forward to coming to this party every year. We bring the booze and TJ brings the entertainment. He is a true chameleon and always has our company's best interests in mind, learning Jimmy Buffett songs when we sponsored his tour and now he has taken on Kenny Chesney songs as well. It is no coincidence that the crowd gathers in the room where the band is playing and completely ignores the other side of the bar where alcohol is served as well. Every year we look forward to teaming up with TJ and the Coco Loco Band and every year, the entertainment just gets better!"

"During my time as Director of Development for Easter Seals in Peoria, I had the pleasure to hire and work with The Coco Loco Band for our Wines and Polo on the Prairie event in 2008. The event was Easter Seals' largest fundraiser of the summer with more than 1,000 attendees under the big tent at Weaver Angus Farm in Peoria. We went with a Buffet-like theme in 2008, and Coco Loco rocked the tent!
I had been associated with the event for a number of years, and this was the first time we used a live band versus a DJ, so we were not sure how it would go over. I shouldn't have worried. People packed the dance floor and we almost couldn't get them to leave when the event was over!
I would HIGHLY recommend Coco Loco to any company or organization looking to bring high energy and FUN to an event. TJ and his staff were also a pleasure and very professional to work with during the set-up stage since we had to use their speaker system for other elements of the event.. They attended regular committee meetings to assure everything would go smoothly."
- Shelli Dankoff McClellan, Easter Seals Wines and Polo on the Prairie.
"Tadd Johnson was a pleasure to work with for our Margaritaville Party in March 2008. Not only did Coco Loco put on an incredible show, they were professional and respectful of our Dry Policy for entertainers. Our members are still talking about Coco Loco and how much fun they had! We would recommend hiring Tadd Johnson and the Coco Loco Band for your next event."
- Katie Neuschwanger, Country Club of Peoria.

"Tadd Johnson has a huge fan base. Coco Loco puts on a tireless show that gets the crowd off their feet and dancing. The music keeps flowing and the cocktails do too! I would highly recommend Coco Loco for any type of event. Fun for all ages shows, weddings, private parties, festivals or fairs. Tadd Johnson does a mean Jimmy Buffet, too! A whole lot-ta colada wrapped up in festive Hawaiian attire."
