Join us to celebrate the last night of the 2024 Summer Picnic Concerts to sing along and dance with popular returning artist August Darnell, better known to his fans as Kid Creole, accompanied by his latest Coconuts.

Kid Creole has given us some of the best ever concert party nights at the pool.

Born in the Bronx, New York City, a true melting pot of cultures, he was exposed at an early age to the sounds of Latin, disco, funk, calypso, reggae, jazz, swing, rhythm & blues, soul, country & western, and rock ‘n’ roll. And it is that unique combination of styles that creates an effervescent party atmosphere at every show, with hits including Annie, I’m Not Your Daddy, I’m a Wonderful Thing, Baby and Stool Pigeon.

When he established Kid Creole and the Coconuts with Adriana Kaegi and Coati Mundi in 1979, Kid Creole had no idea that he would enjoy success around the world for 45 years, releasing 16 albums and over 30 singles as well as receiving the Brit Award for International Artist in 1983.

What they said

“A proper pop star, someone beamed in from somewhere rather glitterier than here” – The Quietus

“Mr August Darnell is a person we scarcely seem to deserve, an unusually conscientious and industrious writer, composer, arranger, producer, player, singer, stage manager, character, bon vivant” – NME

City Funk Orchestra

Britain’s finest soul singers front the most exciting and authentic funk soul band in London.

CFO delivers a dance floor banquet for lovers of the sounds of an unsurpassable era of soul/funk music aristocracy – Chaka Khan, Gap Band, Luther Vandross, SOS Band, Alexander O’Neal, Sister Sledge, Michael Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire, and more.

Originating with a weekly band residency in an exclusive City of London nightclub, City Funk Orchestra soon spread its reach with regular appearances in the capitals’ mainstream music venues and on to festivals in UK and Europe, all the while firmly establishing itself as the finest and most exciting dance-oriented soul/funk band in town.

Expect pumping funky dance-floor specialities with a sprinkling of cheek-to-cheek soul ballads. True Funk is guaranteed!

What they said

“What a band! What energy and groove!” – Gary Stevenson, legendary UK music producer.

“They really are a party on legs” – Steve Jenner, Musicriot.co.uk.
