To be sure, in the beginning there was a need to present an invitation to a dance called Escapism. The visionary was Bronx born August Darnell. Disillusioned by the politics in his big brother’s band, Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band, Mr. Darnell jumped ship in 1981 and formed Kid Creole and the Coconuts with his wife Adriana Kaegi and his buddy Sugar Coated Andy. Thus began the odyssey. Fast forward to 30 years later and the man and his band are still synonymous with over the rainbow adventure: Deluxe Escapism.
