Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Kool & the Gang

When: Fri., May 9, 8 p.m. 2014

Nearly 50 years ago, bassist Robert “Kool” Bell and his brother, saxophonist Ronald Bell, started the straight-up jazz group the Jazziacs. That band would soon morph into the funk/R&B/dance music machine known as Kool & the Gang, which delivered a slew of hits through the ’70s and ’80s. Robert “Kool” Bell still heads the group and last year he took it on tour with rap-rocker Kid Rock. Their performance at Blossom was fantastic as the group had the audience on its feet for classics such as “Ladies Night,” “Jungle Boogie” and “Celebration.” Expect to hear a similar collection of hits tonight.
