Kool & the Gange, Morris Day and Cameo hit Foxwoods Sunday
I called the Algorithmic Science folks at MIT last week to see if they could come up with a way to quantify all the hits by Kool & the Gang.
The answer? "Nope. Too many."
I thought as much. I will say this. I once spent a year and a half in a hotel lounge band, playing 6-7 nights a week. Every night of that tenure, without exception, we played Kool's "Celebration" and "Get Down On It" at least once — and usually again by request. So (without bothering MIT again), I figure I conservatively played Kook & the Gang songs around 800 times.
I'm STILL not tired of either one of those tunes.
That's the genius of those catchy, dance-happy geniuses — and ditto for hearing their "Fresh," "Hollywood Swinging," "Jungle Boogie," "Ladies Night," "Cherish" and on and on.
Maybe you can add up all the hits up when Kook & the Gang perform at the Grand Theater in Foxwoods. Morris Day and the Time and Cameo are also on the bill.
Kool & the Gang, 8 p.m. Sunday, Grand Theater, Foxwoods; $68-$128; 1-800-200-2882.
