You just had to be there!   Carnegie Hall, Christmas time, our hometown, August ROCKED The House!!!!

I had the honor and pleasure of sitting with August's Mom, my wife, and other family members in the center balcony box - with a key!!! 

My man Darnell shook the house!  I was so proud of the 'Kid,' and so glad I took the 'five minutes' to write the jam at Electric Lady Studios!     Ron Rogers 2010. 
"Gina Gina"- Kid Creole and The Coconuts
  Music & Lyrics by Ron  Rogers & August Darnell

Gina Gina, Written about the very lovely Adrian Kaegi. Soon after August met 'Addy' as she became effectionitely known, August invited her down to a recording session with RCA's Gichy DanBand - August and I were producing the final tracks - during a break we stepped into the studio from the control room, at the piano "Gina,  Gina"   I began singing and playing ... August chimed in "He's just a ski instructor".... soon it was on the radio throughout the world.
