Any time of the year, Wilmer ‘G-Cool’ Abraham will take you to a far away place. From a tropical place, one that has palm trees, white beaches and Caribbean rhythms to the blues at the country side or urban soul and disco-funky rhythms of the big city.
G-Cool is a true entertainer that doesn’t know the meaning of 99%. The sweat on their frontman’s forehead during the very first song of the night says it all. As soon as he gets on stage, he gives the crowd a cardio-workout from which you’ll profit the next day.
A night with G-Cool is a night you will most definitely be back for. If you can sit still, there’s something wrong with you. The night will be filled with funk, soul, reggae and caribbean (soca). The interactive performance is filled with beats and energy that is impossible to capture in writing.
G-Cool & his bandmembers /musicians are with large international experience, having played around the world.
