   The Temple Times announced that Kool & the Gang would perform after the annual homecoming game.
   The band, which formed as a jazz ensemble in the mid-’60s, became one of the most influential funk groups during the ’70s with pop chart smashes such as “Jungle Boogie” and “Celebration.” Their songs were featured the films Rocky and Saturday Night Fever, among others.
