About
Two-time Grammy Award winners, Kool & the Gang will be performing live in Nairobi on Sunday, November 13th, 2016 at KICC. They’ve sold over 70 million albums worldwide, have earned seven American Music Awards, 25 Top Ten R&B hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits and 31 gold and platinum albums.
On a three-city tour covering Mozambique, Uganda and Kenya, Kool & The Gang bring their unique blend of jazz, soul and funk—that has influenced the music of three generations—to Nairobi to celebrate the good times.

Traveling with a full band, Kool & The Gang shall play beloved hits such as Celebration, Cherish, Fresh, Jungle Boogie, Summer Madness, Get Down On It, and Ladies Night.

They’ll also perform new single, Sexy (Where’d You Get Yours), a jam Rolling stone Magazine hails as “[signifying] a modernization of Ronald and Robert “Kool” Bell and company’s unmistakable sound, right down to the dance floor-tailored bass grooves and the perfectly timed horns.”
