On August 6, there’s Gumbo on the menu at KOSMIK! This Louisiana specialty will be served on a bed of rhythm & blues and soul. Hailing from Amsterdam, Gumbo Kings adds some gospel and afrobeat to our crock pot before reaching a sizzling boiling point. Hungry for an explosive show? Yep, so are we.
Gumbo Kings promises a steaming evening, releasing everyone’s saved lockdown-energy and, while they’re at it, their new EP! In early 2020, they played Noorderslag’s NPO Soul & Jazz Stage and just before that, they were one of traveling pop festival Popronde’s most successful acts with over 30 booked gigs. A band that’s been around the block, and now it’s our turn to join the trip!
