Kool & The Gang has sold over 70 million albums worldwide and influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like “Celebration,” “Cherish,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Summer Madness,” and “Open Sesame,” they’ve earned two Grammy Awards and seven AMA Awards and had 25 Top Ten R&B hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits, and 31 gold and platinum albums. Kool & The Gang have performed continuously for the past 45 years, longer than any R&B group in history. Their bulletproof funk and tough, jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time.
Opening for Kool & The Gang will be Kool’s son, DJ Prince Hakim, an artist who’s grown up around music and funk all his life. Influenced by the sound of the 80’s and today, Prince Hakim shares his passion and spreads his message to “Celebrate Life.” Prince Hakim has previously toured with Kool & The Gang as a featured rapper/hype man.
