    (August 12, 1950- )
    Kid Creole (August Darnell, August 12, 1950- )
    Albums include ‘Tropical Gangsters' (‘Wise Guy' in the USA, 1982), ‘Doppelganger' (1983), ‘In Praise of Older Women and Other Crimes' (1985) and ‘Too Cool to Conga' (2001)

    His zoot suit, for starters.
    He took his nickname from the Elvis movie ‘King Creole.'
    The Coconuts (the three backing vocalists) rarely smile and barely tolerate the Kid.
    In fact, their skimpy outfits are usually meant as a protest against his attitude.
    Kid Creole and Barry Manilow collaborated on the hideous ‘Hey Mambo' (1987).
    The Kid makes no pretensions about his ego.
    He frequently contributed to motion picture soundtracks.
    The Coconuts are willing to wear pretty much any outfit onstage.
    Even though ‘In Praise of Older Women and Other Crimes' did not chart, ‘Endicott' (the single from 'Where It Came') was quite successful.
    They had a major jump on a swing revival in the late 90's.
    Cab Calloway (whom they actually met) was a major influence.
    At the wedding of his personal assistant, the Kid gave his fired employee back his job.
