Kool & the Gang has achieved significant success throughout their career, thanks to their iconic songs “Celebration,” “Cherish,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Summer Madness,” “I Want to Take You Higher” and “Open Sesame.” Their accolades include two Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 top 10 R&B hits, nine top 10 pop hits, and 31 Gold and Platinum albums. The band's longevity is unparalleled, with continuous performances spanning from Nairobi to Newark, making Koll & the Gang the longest-performing R&B group in history.
