Kool & the Gang attend ABC's "American Idol" Finale on May 19, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Q105 Saturday Night Dance Party fans now have 2 big shows to look forward to this summer. You probably already know about Freestyle Explosion Throwback Jam. It’s going to be ENORMOUS this year with live performances by Stevie B, Lisa Lisa, Expose, TKA, K7, George LaMond, Debbie Deb, Trinere, Pretty Poison, Tag Team, Montell Jordan and the 69 Boyz. If some of those names don’t ring a bell you definitely know their hit songs! The show happens Friday, August 20 at Amalie Arena in Tampa. Geno from The Q105 Saturday Night Dance Party’s will host the concert.

Another show to put on your calendar… at first glance might be kind of odd. The Clearwater Jazz Holiday? Yes! This year’s lineup actually includes more than jazz… they’re bringing Gloria Gaynor (“I Will Survive”) and Kool & The Gang (“Celebration,” “Fresh,” “Ladies Night”) this year! Tickets start at $10 and go on sale July 2. The festival this year runs from October 14 through the 17th at Baycare Ballpark in Clearwater.

Kool & The Gang will headline Thursday, October 14 and Gloria Gaynor will perform Saturday, October 16.
