August Darnell (12 August, 1950, Montreal, Canada) is a Canadian musician who has been involved in several dance-oriented projects in New York in the late 1970s and early to mid 1980s. Projects include Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band (led by Darnell's brother Stony), Don Armando's Second Avenue Rhumba Band[1], Gichy Dan's Beechwood #9, the "mutant disco" of Aural Exciters, Machine's "There But For the Grace of God Go I" and, of course, Kid Creole and the Coconuts[2], as well as "solo" projects involving Andy "Coati Mundi" Hernandez, Taana Gardner[3], Fonda Rae[4]. and Lizzy Mercier Descloux[5]. Some of the more (and less)obscure offerings of Darnell have been released on an music compilation in 2008 by Strut Records as Going Places: The August Darnell Years 1976-1983 .
