Biography

One of the premier merengue acts of the early to mid-’90s, Pochy y Su Cocoband were a group from the Dominican Republic led by Alfonso “Pochi” Vásquez. The group recorded roughly a dozen albums over a ten-year period for the renowned Kubaney label and billed themselves under a variety of names — originally just Cocoband, then Pochi y Su Cocoband or Pochy y Su Cocoband, also Los Cocotuces. Founded in 1988 by Vásquez, the original Cocoband were notably also comprised of Kinito Méndez and Bobby Rafael. Along with Vásquez, Méndez — who would split from the Cocoband during the early ’90s and find success elsewhere with Rikarena and Rokabanda, plus as a solo artist — wrote many of the group’s songs. The Cocoband made their full-length album debut on Kubaney with Cocoband (1989), followed by numerous other albums including La Faldita (1990), Llegaron los Cocotuces (1991), Pero con Coco! (1991), El Arrollador (1992), Canciones Cocomanticas (1993), La Coco Es la Coco (1994), El Hombre Llegó Parao (1995), Temible (1995), and El Ombliguito (1996). In addition, Kubaney compiled a few greatest-hits collections: Grandes Exitos de la Cocoband, Vol. 1 (1994), Grandes Exitos de la Cocoband, Vol. 2 (1994), and the double-disc Coco Mixes (1998).
