Friars Heroes Hall of Fame

Kid Creole
Inducted in November 2009

Kid Creole and The Coconuts, when originally booked to play Friars in June 1982, were then seen by many as not one of the stronger acts to have been booked to play Friars. By the time the gig happened, people had cottoned on to what was happening and it sold out and the band played till midnight. Those there and at their heroic return in October (it sold out immediately) consider these to be amongst the greatest gigs Friars ever saw. Fast forward 27 years and the Kid made good on his promise to set Friars alight was every bit as sensational as 1982 and people are talking of this 2009 gig as one the greatest nights at Friars. We were delighted to be able to say to the Kid he was a definite Friars Hero.

Bucks TV footage of them accepting their award can be seen here.
