Biography

The group’s first charting single, Kool and the Gang, a horn-driven, highly rhythmic instrumental dance track, was followed by a steady string of similar singles through 1976. The band’s commercial breakthrough came in 1973 with the album Wild and Peaceful, which featured the singles Funky Stuff, Jungle Boogie, and Hollywood Swinging, all of which reached the rhythm-and-blues Top Ten. Kool and the Gang’s sound was an innovative fusion of jazz, African rhythms, and street funk that established the band as an innovator in black music until the onset of the disco era. However, when the group’s single Open Sesame was reissued on the soundtrack for the motion picture Saturday Night Fever in 1977, Kool and the Gang shifted emphasis toward pop and disco.

EXPAND FULL BIO

In 1979 the band added lead vocalist J.T. Taylor and producer Eumir Deodato, which led to a cleaner, pop-driven sound and to the crossover single Ladies’ Night. Numerous hits followed, including the number one hit Celebration in 1980, as well as the sentimental pop songs Joanna in 1983 and Cherish in 1985. Kool and the Gang charted more pop singles than any other act in the 1980s. The band continues to record and tour into the early 21st century.
