KC and the Sunshine Band are still as widely popular today as when they first danced into the music scene 50 years ago. Harry Wayne Casey — KC for short— developed a unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of a Latin percussion groove, giving us an impressive string of hits like “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s the Way (I Like It)”, and “Shake Your Booty.” With sales of over 100 million records, nine Grammy nominations, three Grammy Awards, and an American Music Award, KC and the Sunshine Band was one of the most progressive bands of the ‘70s and is credited with changing the sound of modern pop music. Today, KC and the Sunshine Band plays over 100 live shows annually, circling the country and playing dates regularly throughout Europe, Australia, and South America. This year KC will celebrate 50 years of entertaining us, writing songs, and performing around the world and has no intention of stopping. 

KC’s success in music has earned him an extensive list of accolades including an American Music Award for Best R&B Artist in 1975 and a songwriting Grammy for Best R&B song for “Where Is The Love,” which was recorded by Betty Wright. He also received a Grammy Award for Album of the Year, as well as Producer of the Year in 1978 for his work on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. In 2001, KC was honored with the NARAS Governor’s Award, the highest honor given by a chapter of the Academy. He received a coveted Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002, where Dick Clark and music producer Michael Lloyd turned out to honor him. This particular recognition represents the passion that KC has in writing music, implementing elements of various eras in his songs, proving him to be a passionate, veteran craftsman. 

KC’s songs are regularly heard at sporting events, were featured during Opening Ceremonies of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy and he even performed a free concert in Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Olympics. No stranger to the small screen, KC’s songs have been featured in such shows as Desperate Housewives, Ally McBeal, American Bandstand’s 50th Anniversary Party, and most recently American Idol and Dancing With The Stars with the help of the USC marching band. 

Music acts like White Zombie, Baha Men, Beyoncé and American Idol’s Kelly & Justin have covered his music. Additionally, KC and the Sunshine Band’s grooves and bass lines have been samples in everything from “Rap” by Snoop Dogg to “Trick Daddy to Dance” by Ultra Nate and many, many more. 

You can count on hearing his music on the radio, at a nightclub, at the movies, in a sports arena or at one of the 100-plus concerts KC and the Sunshine Band plays every year. It is always fun and truly makes all who hear it happy enough to dance!
