KC and The Sunshine Band
are an American disco and funk band named after its founder Harry Wayne Casey’s last name (KC) and their home state of Florida (‘the Sunshine state’). Starting out in 1973, the band became well-known for their numerous hit singles, among which That's the Way (I Like It)
, (Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty
, Keep It Comin' Love
, Get Down Tonight
, Please Don’t Go
, and Give It Up
. They became the first act to score four #1 pop singles in one 12-month period since the Beatles in 1964. Always having loved music, band founder and leader ‘KC’ experimented at mixing three musical genres together: pop, reggae, and Latin. What came out was what we now know as the ‘Sunshine Sound’ which is still guaranteed to bring people to the dance floor.
