One of the greatest bands of all time, Kool & the Gang with fan-favorite hits such as “Celebration”, “Cherish”, “Jungle Boogie”, “Summer Madness” and many more, will be performing at our Dream On Concert Gala.

This performance is just prior to their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in October! Kool & the Gang have also earned two Grammy® Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 Top Ten R&B hits, 9 Top Ten Pop hits and 31 gold and platinum albums.

Kool & the Gang have performed continuously longer than any R&B group in history and their bulletproof funk and jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled R&B band of all time.
