Back in the day, Kool and The Gang became a staple in soul music. 2 Brothers from Jersey City, New Jersey (Robert “Kool” Bell and Ronald Bell) joined with Dennis “Dee Tee” Thomas, Robert “Spike” Mickens, Charles Smith, George Brown, and Ricky West to form the band, Kool And The Gang.
Since then, Kool And The Gang have consisted of many personnel changes. Additionally, their music also evolved, covering soul, funk, jazz, rock and pop music.
This week, the group lost one of their own. Dennis Thomas, who played the saxophone, past away this week in his sleep. He was 70 years old.
