About Kid Creole and the Coconuts
Inimitable, relentless and self-proclaimed cool.
Kid Creole and the Coconuts were born out of the burning embers of the brilliant and legendary Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. August Darnell (Kid Creole) claims to have had a vision of the band in a nightmare while walking down Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Born in the Bronx, Darnell is a man of multiple cultures, legends and personalities. For over 27 years Kid Creole and the Coconuts have been entertaining sell-out crowds around the world. Inspired by Cab Calloway and the Hollywood films of the 30s and 40s, the Kid fills out his colourful zoot suits with style and grace, dancing onstage with his inimitable, relentless and self-proclaimed cool.
Kid Creole & The Coconuts created a generation of Latin-meets-disco lovers in the UK and beyond in the early 1980s with a string of outstanding live shows and great albums like Tropical Gangster.
Sampled by The Avalanches and now being discovered by a new generation of kids seduced by the infectious grooves and hepcat vibes.
Whether you remember the decade or not, Kid Creole is the ultimate 80s nostalgia trip.
