Two-time Grammy Award-winning and 31 gold and platinum album selling band, Kool & the Gang has been performing longer than any other R&B group. Kool & the Gang shot to fame with iconic songs like “Celebration,” “Cherish,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Summer Madness” and “Open Sesame.” Their 1970 sophomore album, Live at the Sex Machine, reached #6 on the Billboard’s R&B chart, driven by hit singles: “Funky Man,” “Who’s Gonna Take the Weight” and “I Want to Take You Higher.” Nine years later, the group released Ladies Night, which became their first platinum album.

Kool & the Gang’s unique sound of Jazz, Funk, and horn arrangements has made them one of the most sampled groups in the industry. Their tracks can be heard in the works of Jay-Z, Madonna, and the Beastie Boys. Movie soundtracks for Rocky, Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction and Wreck-It-Ralph also feature hits by the group.

Ronald Bell, Robert “Kool” Bell, Robert “Spike” Mickens, Dennis “Dee Tee” Thomas, Ricky Westfield, George Brown and Charles Smith joined forces to create Kool & the Gang, after several alternate band names, in 1964. Even past their 50th Anniversary, the group is still putting out new music and doing performances.
