’70s Icon KC and The Sunshine Band in Hot Springs, Ark.
I know this band is not considered country but if you grew up in the '70s like I did, then I know you've heard of KC and The Sunshine Band. I was in high school and on the radio at the time when "Get Down Tonight" came out.
I just really liked their sound and became a huge fan. It's hard to believe after all these years that KC and The Sunshine Band is still around and very popular and touring today. Like many people in that era, you grew up listening to it all -- country, rock, pop, R&B because there was a lot of crossover into the various formats on radio, sort of like what's going on today in the music industry.
Well, if you happen to be a KC fan like me, you're going to want to see them perform live in concert in Hot Springs Ark. at Oaklawn Park Friday, July 24. Not only that, but KC and The Sunshine Band, will help to celebrate America's 239th birthday by performing their top-selling, multi-platinum dance hits like "(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty," "Get Down Tonight," "That's The Way (I Like It)" and more as part of "A Capitol Fourth", Live on PBS from the U.S. Capitol on Saturday July 4, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The band will appear along with Barry Manilow, Alabama, Nicole Scherzinger, Hunter Hayes, Meghan Linsey, Lang Lang, Ronan Tynan, Robert Davi and the National Symphony Orchestra.
Celebrating the March release of their new '60s cover album, Feeling You! The '60s, The Founder of The Dance Revolution, Harry Wayne "KC" Casey, and his high-energy Sunshine Band plan to bring their ultra catchy Miami-born pop, funk and R&B sound to the celebration, backed by one of the greatest fireworks displays in the country.
