A Profile of Kosmas Mamadopoulos
By Bob Cohen

I met Kosmas in the Yahoo! Group Midkar in late 2007. The Greek entertainer played for over 30 years in the New York City area before retiring and splitting his early semi-retirement time between Athens Greece, where he spends eight months a year before escaping to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for the other four winter months. In Puerto Vallarta Kosmas plays his piano and guitar, belting out popular tunes in seven different languages to the requests of his customers a few nights a week at local popular supper clubs. Also, and just as important to the tennis enthusiast and high level competitor, he fine tunes his tennis game, playing top players locally and worldwide. He seems to have the ability to let people enjoy each other. It is just that simple, but few are as successful as he. He is an accomplished performer and vocalist. He sings in seven languages.

Kosmas was born on the 4th of July, in Athens, Greece and at the age of 11 ˝ quit school and went to work in a handbag factory, saved $5 and purchased a used guitar. Completely self taught, his inspiration was the music of the Beatles and Kos worked hard playing anywhere he could in the local neighborhoods of Athens. He was drafted by the Royal Air Force and met a well known Greek musician there named Antones Theodoropoulos the sax player of the famous Greek group “Olympians”, who took him under his wing and helped him launch his career in music. Kosmas then performed with the group for two years during his stay in Thessaloniki.

At the age of 21, he left his Mom, Stella, whom he says "gave me enough love for three lifetimes," and got hired on as a singer and guitarist for a lounge band on the Celebrity cruise ship line. He stayed with the cruise lines and traveled the world for three years before giving Miami a shot. In his old Catalina he commuted 60 miles every day to play in night clubs.

Realizing there was not much opportunity for stardom in Miami and the Catalina collecting Florida salt rust; he packed up and headed for the "Big Apple." His first job was not in music, but as a mail boy, so he could audition at different night clubs in the evenings. He was finally hired at a popular Manhattan Italian restaurant and night club named "Giordanos" for two weeks, and ended up staying there for 17 years. He also played for four years in the French "La Verte Galant" owned by Maurice and Marilyn Hommery.

On alternate nights he played at the exclusive Palace Hotel, owned by Leona Helmsley, where, in 1991, rooms started at $400 a night, parking was $60 a night and drinks were $12. He retired at age 54 after playing a 12 year stint in Northern New Jersey at "Iltulipano" restaurant and night club.

In this time, Kos has shared with me many of his recordings, and would like to share them here. It is an honor, to feature this very talented singer on Jukebox Saturday Night. Kosmas has been kind enough to ask that his MP3 files remain free for downloading from this site.
