Kool & The Gang

is one of the funkiest band on earth. The New Jersey-combo went through several phases during the course of their recording career, starting out with a purist jazz sound, then becoming practitioners of R&B and funk («Jungle Boogie», «Funky Stuff» «Hollywood Swinging») and atmospheric soul («Summer Madness»), progressing to a smooth pop-funk ensemble («Celebration», «Ladies Night»). They have sold over 80 million albums worldwide.

Which song do you listen to when...
you try to stay up for more than 24 hours?
Bobby Lewis - Tossin' And Turnin'

Actually I’ll drink espresso in order to not falling asleep.

you cook?

For instance scrambled eggs? Usually I listen to the radio, but Ronald cooks a lot, even sushi. But he has to pay attention to what he’s doing while cooking so he’d only listen to soft music.

you want to disturb your neighbours?

Wow this is psycho logic, is this comedy? We don’t try to disturb our neighbors, we try to be good neighbors.

you are on a football field?

The echo of the pre game and after game. «We Will Rock You, Touchdown!!!». If you win, you listen to any celebration or victory tune.
