Kool & The Gang live at Emperors Palace

01 March 2011

Emperors Palace is proud to present music legends, Kool & The Gang, live in concert for one show only on 20 March in the Centre Court. Since 1969, this Grammy winning group has created a sound that merges between jazz, R&B, funk and pop, and now in 2011 they will perform a variety of their greatest hits set to thrill young and old alike.

Boasting album sales exceeding 70 million, Kool & the Gang have influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like Celebration, Cherish, Jungle Boogie, Summer Madness and Open Sesame, they've earned two Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 Top Ten R&B hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits, and 31 gold and platinum albums. This unbelievably talented group have performed continuously for the past 35 years; longer than any R&B group in history. Their bulletproof funk and tough, jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time.

Kool & The Gang's unique sounds have been created by the same members for over thirty years: Robert "Kool" Bell, brother Khalis Bayyan, Dennis "DT" Thomas, George "Funky" Brown, and past members Robert "Spike" Mickens, the late Charles Smith, Ricky West and Woody Sparrow.
