Featuring devastating vocalist CocoSoul (Coco Rochelle) and led by musical director Mo Egeston, Soul Alliance is not a musty oldies band. The act demolishes the boundaries between funk, R&B — and, yes, soul — with impressive instrumental skill.

Maurice "Mo" Egeston first approached Coco Rochelle (formerly CocoSoul) on MySpace with the idea of creating a dance band which became Soul Alliance. Since 2009 a deep artistic connection has taken them many musical different directions. Finding them frequently floating in and out of each others projects while continuing to perform as a duo and in many full band combinations.
As a duo Coco & Mo can perform acoustically, with the backing of a full band or as a duo with the addition of Mo's beat production skills. This flexibility allows them to play anywhere from chilled out lounges to high energy dance floors while maintaining their signature groove.
