KC and the Sunshine Band

Boogying their way through the 1970s, KC And The Sunshine Band mixed together funk and disco riffs to become the ultimate cheesy party band of the era. Formed by record store worker Harry Wayne Casey (aka KC) and studio engineer Richard Finch in Miami in 1973, they came to prominence when they penned George McRae's huge hit Rock Your Baby (a Number 1 in 51 countries). They topped the US charts themselves with single Get Down Tonight before second album KC And The Sunshine Band (1975) made it to Number 4 and sold over 3 million copies. The group went on to top the charts with their sunny, feel-good anthems That's The Way (I Like It), (Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty, I'm Your Boogie Man and Please Don't Go, sell over 100 million records and win three Grammy Awards; but Finch left the band in 1981. Casey briefly retired before recruiting an entirely new line-up in 1991 that continues to party their away around the world playing all their old hits.
