When it comes to making music that makes you want to move, few do it better than Kool & the Gang – one of the most influential and dynamic soul and R&B groups of all time.
Kool & the Gang will be on the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino for one performance at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17. Tickets start at $40.
A press release said, “Starting in the mid-’60s and continuing strong to this day, Kool & the Gang opened as a jazz group, tried and then moved on from disco, fostered a dance culture in the ’80s, dabbled in rap, and shared the stage with rock ‘n’ roll icons such as Van Halen. Through it all, there is always one thing people remember when getting ready for a Kool & the Gang show, or just for a night out on the town: ‘We’re gonna have a good time tonight, let’s celebrate, it’s alright.’ ”
“Celebration” – the band’s larger-than-life hit – remains one of Kool & the Gang’s most recognizable songs. Other hits – from a band whose discography includes 23 studio albums with over 70 million sold worldwide – include “Ladies Night,” “Get Down on It” and “Cherish.”
