may be available for your next special event!
GRAMMY AWARD winning Kool & the Gang is an American R&B/funk band
formed in Jersey City, New Jersey, in 1964 by brothers Robert "Kool" Bell and
Ronald Bell, with Dennis "Dee Tee" Thomas, Robert "Spike" Mickens, Charles
Smith, George Brown, and Ricky West.
They have undergone numerous changes in personnel and have explored many musical
styles throughout their history, including jazz, soul, funk, rock, and pop
music. After settling on their name following several changes, the group signed
to De-Lite Records and released their debut album, Kool and the Gang (1969).
Kool & The Gang, the group with a sound that has
influenced the music of three generations, has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide.
Songs like "Celebration," "Cherish," "Jungle
Boogie," "Summer Madness" and "Open Sesame" have won two Grammy
Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 Top Ten R&B hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits and 31
Gold and Platinum albums. Kool & The Gang has performed continuously
for more than 30 years, longer than any other R&B group in history. Their ticket to
longevity has been the evolution of their music.
Kool & The Gang's classic hits have become a mainstay for rap and Hip Hop artists. Also, they continue to entertain audiences worldwide
through extensive touring. They made several historical performances in Russia and were
the first African American band to perform in Taiwan.
In the mid 90's, nostalgia for 70's and 80's music in the U.S., Europe
and Japan began to explode. Kool & The Gang's classic sing
"Jungle Boogie" was featured on the multi-platinum soundtrack "Pulp
Fiction." Classic hits like "Ladies Night," "Hollywood Swinging"
and a host of others were revived with a Hip Hop twist from rap artists, such as
Mase, Puff Daddy, Coolio and Will Smith.
Kool & The Gang continues to perform to packed
audiences of new and old fans around the world.
When asked how each member feels about the future of Kool & The Gang, they responded with these statements ---
Robert "Kool" Bell --
"I believe the key to our success for three decades has been our ability to stay on
the cutting edge of R&B and Pop music. The new millennium is our time to celebrate 30
years of success. We will continue to stay on the cutting edge of music by blending Hip
Hop, R&B and Jazz with our winning sound."
Khalis Bayyan, a.k.a. Ronald Bell --
"I feel that our longevity in the music industry is a result of our relentless
pursuit of excellence and consistency. We are now a part of the Hip Hop millennium. We
have a great respect for Hip Hop music and Hip Hop artists have a great respect for us.
The future of our sound will be an infusion of classic Kool & The Gang
with Hip Hop."
George Brown --
"The Creator has truly blessed us in so many ways. Our strong friendship with each
other has allowed us to come together to create music for our loyal fans. With the Creator
in our hearts, I believe our sound will continue to grow and mature with the times. The
new millennium represents a complete cycle of our success. By helping to develop the
talents of others, Kool & The Gang will once again supply music to
Dennis Thomas --
