Kool & The Gang officially launched in 1969 after performing for five years under various band titles. The group has recorded a number of hits over the years including “Jungle Boogie,” “Hollywood Swinging,” Ladies’ Night,” “Celebration,” “Get Down on It,” “Joanna” and “Cherish.”
In addition to two GRAMMYs, Kool & The Gang have won seven American Music Awards® and a Music Business Association Chairman’s Award for artistic achievement. They have compiled 25 Top-10 R&B hits and nine Top-10 pop hits, as well as 31 gold and platinum albums.
Today, the group still enjoys global fame and recognition and has a following that spans generations due in part to the group’s widely sampled catalogue. Their drum beats, bass, guitar and signature horn lines lace the tracks of numerous artists, including the Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Cypress Hill and P. Diddy.
Kool & The Gang’s music has been featured on the soundtracks for Rocky, Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction, Wreck It Ralph and countless others.
Approaching their 50th anniversary, Kool & The Gang recently had artifacts from the band’s archive go on display at the newly opened GRAMMY Museum Experience™ in Newark, New Jersey. Also, a street in their hometown of Jersey City, New Jersey was renamed in their honor: Kool & The Gang Way.
