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.
