LIVE album OUT NOW

Good to be LIVE! OUT NOW!!!

Live in Paris CD – Kid Creole and the Coconuts. Recorded at Le Zenith, Paris, September 10th, 1985.

OOH LA LA

At the zenith of their career, with the complete original line up of Creoleans, Kid Creole & The Coconuts take the stage in Paris to perform and record one of the hot and unforgettable shows that made them famous. The band loved Europe and Europe loved them right back. You can hear it in the applause and the rebounding energy from the stage. In fact, the band is so tight that they never stop playing and we are pretty sure that the audience never stopped dancing (or smiling). The last beat of every song is also the first beat of the next song and this party is a festive and wild ride. Grab a piece of dance floor and hang on!

Energetic, timeless and unique party band

Kid Creole And The Coconuts guarantees a festive and extremely danceable mix of jazz, disco and funk. On Saturday 22 September, Kid Creole and its beautiful Coconuts will provide tropical temperatures in our LIMBURG hall. Then try to stand still! The band around singer and founder August Darnell, who grew up in the New York area The Bronx, plays a mix of latin, jazz, disco and up-tempo funk. In 1980 Darnell, inspired by the eponymous film by Elvis, took the name Kid Creole and adds the beautiful background singers the Coconuts to his band. Two years later the group breaks through with the album ‘Tropical Gangsters’, which produces a number of hits, of which ‘Annie, I’m Not Your Daddy’ is the biggest. Kid Creole And The Coconuts has released many albums and has worked with Prince, Barry Manilow and U2 in recent years, as well as filmmakers Francis Ford Coppola and his daughter Sofia, and gave private shows for Princess Diana and President Clinton. For more than a quarter of a century the band has succeeded in surviving disappearing musical styles and trends and continues to amaze the audience with its delightful and ingenious dance music. Even after the concert you can still dance, after the show the Vinyl Twins will fill the room with the best groovy, jazzy and funky pictures!

Tickets for the concert in the LIMBURGzaal on Saturday 22 September 2018 will start on Friday 20 April 2018 at 11:00 hrs via www.plt.nl.

KID CREOLE & THE COCONUTS – 22:15
A group, a sound, an image.
From New York club 54 to the Palace of Paris, August Darnell aka Kid Creole, a great admirer of Cab Calloway since the late 70s, dared a clever mix of funk, rock and Latin sounds. A new merger was born.
Prince was the first of his fans, then the whole world would capsize under the class of Kid, the charm of the Coconuts and the musical madness of the Group.
This explosive cocktail has not taken a turn, and Kid Creole & The Coconuts continue to travel the world for the happiness of all.

WILL BARBER – 20:30
Will was born in Narbonne to a family printing house and regional writers. He finds his balance in football and music, With the attention of his father, he learns the guitar and falls under the charm of the guitar Weissenborn in particular, played today by Ben Harper. He made his original instruments mixing his passion for music and wood. With his old school style inspired by Led Zep, BBKing, Motown, he wants to cross the continents to share his music with the world.
