kool & the gang
with leroy bell & his only friends
Celebrate summer with Grammy Award winning funk rock superstars KOOL & THE GANG. Sit back and enjoy the show or get up and get down on it! It’s all good at the Festival at Sandpoint. Brothers Robert “Kool” Bell and Ronald Bell formed their iconic band in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1964. The group has explored many musical styles including jazz, soul, funk, rock and pop, earning them two Grammys, seven American Music Awards and induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Their discography spans 23 studio albums and 70 singles including hits “Get Down On It,” “Ladies Night,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Cherish,” and the No. 1 “Celebrate.”
LEROY BELL & HIS ONLY FRIENDS will open the show. Singer, Songwriter and X Factor Finalist Bell is a Sandpoint favorite, having performed with his band at the Panida Theater and at the Festival supporting Barenaked Ladies and Jonny Lang.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A DANCE SHOW!
The Festival venue will be configured differently for this concert to allow for an increased dancing/standing area in front of the stage. There will still be adequate sections for blankets, low chairs, high chairs and reserved patron and sponsor seating, as well as seated availability in the grandstands.
