The legendary Kool & The Gang band will be performing in Uganda on November 12th at the Kololo Airstrip Grounds in what will be the biggest disco themed production in Uganda’s history. Considered as one of the most successful bands of all time, Kool & The Gang have influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like; “Jungle Boogie,” “Cherish,” “Open Sesame,” “Summer Madness” and “Celebration”.
Tusker Malt Lager has partnered with Talent Africa and Silk Events to bring its consumers the show of a lifetime. Steps are being taken to make the concert a VIP themed concert.
“The event will take place in the biggest dome ever used in Uganda. The massive structure has been imported and has the capacity to sit 4,000 people. The dome will be transformed into a massive disco inferno themed event. From set design, to decoration, to lighting and visuals this show promises to take people on a trip down memory lane.” Said Aly Allibhai, Talent Africa Group CEO.
Boasting of 31 gold and platinum albums, nine Top Ten Pop hits and 25 Top Ten R&B hits, the band has earned two Grammy Awards and seven American Music Awards. Having performed continuously for the past 43 years, Kool & The Gang have been entertaining people longer than any other R&B group in history.
Speaking to Alex Tusingwire, the Tusker Malt Lager Brand Manager, he said; “Kool & The Gang’s bulletproof funk and jazzy arrangements have made it the most sampled band of all time. As Tusker Malt Lager, our commitment is always to deliver the best music experience to our consumers. This has been witnessed over the years and we shall continue to make the best of memories with our consumers.”
