Kid Creole and the Coconuts were a highly influential and eccentric musical group formed in the late 1970s. Led by the charismatic and flamboyant August Darnell (also known as Kid Creole), the band combined elements of disco, funk, calypso, and Latin rhythms to create their own unique sound. Known for their infectious grooves, colorful costumes, and theatrical stage performances, Kid Creole and the Coconuts delivered a lively and entertaining fusion of music and showmanship. Their songs often featured playful and witty lyrics, exploring themes of love, culture, and social commentary. Hits such as “Stool Pigeon” and “Annie, I’m Not Your Daddy” showcased their ability to blend genres and deliver catchy, danceable tunes. The photo is from the 1980s-90s and is approximately 8″x10″.
