Hey Folks! Let's celebrate good times with the '80s most successful R&B group- Kool & the Gang!
Mike & the Gang (Mike Joseph, Jeff Giles and Jason Hare) trace the band's history back to its less commercial and significantly more funky origins, but mostly focus on the salad days of 1980-1985. During this time, Robert "Kool" Bell, singer James "J.T." Taylor, and their band of (seemingly) thousands ruled radio with smashes like "Joanna", "Fresh", "Cherish" and the #1 anthem "Celebration".
Where did Kool find J.T.? Did their "Jungle Boogie"-era fans and their "Ladies' Night"-era fans coexist peacefully? Who the hell convinced Van Halen to allow 21st century era Kool (no J.T.) to open for them on their final tour? Why was J.T. always proposing eternal love and marriage, not meaningless sex like just about everyone else in the '80s?
