Servin up the sounds of the South for over 20 Years!

A unique blend of rhythm and blues, zydeco, rock n' roll, country and swamp-pop, the music of Mark Willis & Cocodrie has inspired crowds at a variety of festive and exciting occasions, whether it be at music festivals across Louisiana or at wedding parties and political affairs. Charlie Daniels, Percy Sledge, Delbert McClinton and Louisiana's LaRoux have been the headliners at some of the concerts where they have performed. In 1999 the band performed during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo at the "Hideout" (where other artists such as Montgomery/Gentry and Lee Roy Parnell have performed), a new venue alongside the Astrodome. Over 15,000 tickets sold were sold for this performance.

Mark was nominated and selected as the "Best Rhythm and Blues, Boogie Keyboard Player Award" and the "Best Country Keyboard Player Award" in The Times of Acadiana Music Poll, held in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Cocodrie participates in many Louisiana State celebrations and festivals, always leaving the crowds asking for more‚ more and more!

Says the Colonel of the Bluesharp Page: "Mark Willis and Cocodrie, are in my opinion, the hottest R&B band in what is called Acadiana or southtwest Louisiana. They totally rocked the joint!
