Kool & the Gang Celebrate Independence: With a bunch of “invite Only” shows for frontline workers successfully executed, the Hollywood Bowl is opening up to everyone. Two fireworks spectaculars with funk legends Kool & the Gang will celebrate July 4 while simultaneously heralding the opening of the doors proper.

“Celebrate good times—and Independence Day—with the ultimate hitmakers, Kool & the Gang,” reads the Hollywood Bowl statement. “The disco-funk greats bring the party to the Bowl for our annual Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular, while Thomas Wilkins and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra perform patriotic favorites. Get ready to get down on it!”

Seems to us that “Jungle Boogie” is already a national treasure.

The events take place at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 3 and Sunday, July 4 at the Hollywood Bowl; hollywoodbowl.com.
