About

It’s impossible to imagine 1970s pop music without remembering Kool & the Gang, whose versatile, jazz/funk/R&B sound crossed musical genres into mainstream popular culture. With sales of tens of millions of albums worldwide, Kool & the Gang have influenced a generation of singers like Kriss Kross, Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Doggy Dogg, De La Soul and countless others. In concert, Kool & the Gang treat their ticket holders to a high energy extravaganza featuring a mix of old favorites and jazzy, funk-infused new songs that sizzle with intense, cascading rhythms. Today, the group celebrates not only 50 years in the music industry, but also its latest album, “Home for the Holidays,” which features holiday music performed in its unforgettable, jazzy funk-infused style and innovative sound.

Kool & the Gang got its start when a group of five high school buddies got together in 1964, performing contemporary, funk-based harmonies and arrangements. After the release of several albums featuring the lead vocals of J.T. Taylor, the group hit mainstream fame in 1973 with its album “Wild and Peaceful,” which featured mega hits like “Funky Stuff,” “Hollywood Swinging” and “Jungle Boogie.” They followed this success in 1980 with their blockbuster hit “Celebration,” which is considered by many to be the iconic musical anthem of the era. During the 1980s, they followed with a string of hits, including “Cherish” and “Fresh.” As musical styles changed into the 1990s, the next generation of hip-hop performers acknowledged how much they had been influenced by this pioneering group, and awards and accolades soon followed, including the National Association of Recording Merchandisers Chairman Award in recognition of the group's staggering record sales. In 2006, the group hit the Billboard R&B charts yet again with “Steppin’ into Love.” In 2012, with three of the original members still performing ( brothers “Kool” and Ronald Bell and George Brown), Kool & the Gang embarked on a highly successful tour with Van Halen. They followed this up with an extensive 2013-2014 worldwide concert tour that has included stops in several cities in Japan, Europe and the US. Today, enthusiastic ticket holders can expect to hear all their old favorites in concert, performed in that inimitable signature sound that has made this group a fan favorite and cultural phenomenon for half a century.

    I loved the show, Those guys sang, danced and I loved every moment. I had good seats too. I was surprised that no other group was there but Kool and the Gang, kept the music going and they held it down. I will go to see them again.

    Absolutely Amazing

    by Marie Shackelford on 2/20/24Ovation Hall at Ocean Casino Resort - Atlantic City

    I feel that Kool And The Gang should appear more in the tri-state areas. Their show was absolutely amazing. You dance and sing though their whole show song after song. I wish their concerts could be a little longer for they have so much outstanding music to shared Especially after being in the business for 60 years. I recommend anyone that has not seen the Kool And The Gang Show to do so once you see that their visiting your city, state, or country. You will love every minute because Kool And The Gang DO NOT DISAPPOINT. THEY BRING THE FUNK ALWAYS.

    Fantastic show

    by Tony on 2/20/24Ovation Hall at Ocean Casino Resort - Atlantic City

    This was my first time watching Kool and the gang live. I've always seen them on TV but I have never seen them in person. I was blown away from the performance that they gave me. The best show I have ever seen it a long time and at the end they actually came to the front of the stage cause I was 3 rows from the stage and they shook hands come to find out I knew a couple of guys that was in the band from Philadelphia how great was that I loved my experience.

    It Was "Kool"

    by MzYvette on 2/20/24Ovation Hall at Ocean Casino Resort - Atlantic City

    Four good friends, great venue, great seats, great music and a great walk down memory lane. Although Kool and the Gang now only consists of Robert "Kool"Bell, this new "gang"was awesome and beautifully perfomed the classic K&TG tunes. Wonderful concert, wonderful time.
