Funk is taking center stage at Spirit Mountain Casino this summer, courtesy of Kool & the Gang. When reflecting on their prolific music career, it’s easy to get caught up in the numbers. 70 million album sales. 31 gold-certified albums. 7 American Music Awards. 2 Grammy Awards. But there are other numbers that matter, too.
43 years of live performances, three generations worth of monumental music, and one core group of dedicated fans—you!
Enjoy a rare opportunity to see Kool & the Gang live in the Willamette Valley. With a set list packed with classics like “Jungle Boogie,” “Hollywood Swinging,” “Summer Madness,” and “Steppin’ into Love,” you’ll get to revisit all your favorite hits.
Led by brothers Robert “Kool” Bell and Ronald Bell, Kool & the Gang has been a staple in the funk scene for more than four decades. They’ve shared the stage with musical geniuses across generations, from Ritchie Havens to Ashanti, and stand out as the most sampled band of all time.
We’re packing two great performances into one night, thanks to opener Morris Day and the Time. This Minneapolis-born band brings a potent mix of soul, funk, and rock to the stage; Morris Day performed alongside Prince in the 80s and starred in Purple Rain. You’ll get to hear decades of great music, from “Jungle Love” to “Jerk Out.”
Experience Kool & the Gang and Morris Day and the Time live at Spirit Mountain Casino and buy your tickets today to reserve your spot. With funk, soul, and rock rolled into one show, it’s the recipe for an unforgettable night of great music!
