Kool & The Gang Releases Their First Holiday Album, "Kool for the Holidays"! Enter to Win a Kool & The Gang Holiday Prize Pack! (GIVEAWAY)

Kool & The Gang wrapped up a 50-plus city tour in 2012 with Van Halen and 2013 tours with Kid Rock and the Dave Matthews Band, but they’re not taking a rest! Now, they’re busy getting the word out about their first holiday album, “Kool for the Holidays”! With its melody flipped slightly, “Winter Wonderland” pulsates to a dance beat and a tasteful rap while “Little Drummer Boy” segues from jazzy to funky, and “Joy to World” carries a contemporary R&B groove! But as beloved as the CD’s original songs are, the Kool & The Gang-written holiday originals are bound to become classics on their own.

Kool & The Gang’s music has been created by the same core of players for more than four decades: Robert "Kool" Bell, his brother Ronald Khalis Bell, their longtime friends Dennis "DT" Thomas and George "Funky" Brown. Along with the original foursome, other band members include Clifford Adams, Lavelle Evans, Larry Gittens, Timothy Horton, Shawn McQuiller, Michael Ray and Curtis "Fitz" Williams. With the explosion of hip-hop in the ’90s, Kool & The Gang’s incredible catalog of grooves has made them DJ favorites, and they are second only to R&B icon James Brown as sources of rap-music samples. Selling over 70 million albums worldwide, the band has influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like "Celebration," "Cherish," "Summer Madness" and "Open Sesame," Kool & The Gang has earned two Grammy® Awards and seven American Music Awards and amassed 34 Top Ten R&B hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits and 31 gold and platinum albums. They have performed continuously longer than any R&B group in history.
