Kool & the Gang at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek
August 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$40
On Thursday, August 15, 8 p.m., boogie down with Kool & the Gang who will perform their greatest hits in The Pavilion at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.
The godfathers of pop-funk, Kool & the Gang features bassist Robert “Kool” Bell, tenor sax Ronald “Khalis” Bell, drummer George “Funky” Brown, and alto sax Dennis “D.T.” Thomas. The group has recorded a number of hits over the years, including “Jungle Boogie,” “Hollywood Swinging,” Ladies’ Night,” “Celebration,” “Get Down on It,” “Joanna” and “Cherish.”
In addition to two Grammy awards, Kool & the Gang have won seven American Music Awards and a Music Business Association Chairman’s Award for artistic achievement. They have compiled 25 Top-10 R&B hits and nine Top-10 pop hits, as well as 31 gold and platinum albums.
Today, the group still enjoys global fame and recognition and has a following that spans generations due in part to the group’s widely sampled catalogue. Their drum beats, bass, guitar and signature horn lines lace the tracks of numerous artists, including the Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Cypress Hill, and P. Diddy.
Kool & the Gang’s music has been featured on hit movie soundtracks like Rocky, Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction, and Wreck It Ralph.
Approaching their 50th anniversary, Kool & the Gang recently had artifacts from its archives go on display at the new GRAMMY Museum Experience in Newark, New Jersey. Also, a street in their hometown of Jersey City, New Jersey was renamed in their honor: Kool & The Gang Way.
