KC and The Sunshine Band to perform at Pala's Starlight Theater

14 May 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- R&B/Funk legends KC and the Sunshine Band will perform at 8 p.m., Friday, 14 September, in the Starlight Theater at the Pala Casino Spa and Resort.

KC and the Sunshine Band are still as widely popular today as they were when they first danced into the music scene 40 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.

KC and the Sunshine Band play over 100 live shows annually, circling the country and playing dates regularly throughout Europe, Australia and South America. In 2008, KC celebrated 35 years entertaining us, writing songs, performing around the world and he has no intention of stopping. KC’s songs have stood the test of time and you can ask any one of the thousands of fans who spend the entire concert on their feet, dancing and shaking their booty.

The band released its latest single, “Movin’ Your Body,” on 2 June 2017. Written by founder KC, the song impacted the Billboard Dance Chart at No. 46, giving him his fourth consecutive Billboard Dance-charting single.

“With all the tension in the world right now, I wanted to write a song to help people escape and leave their worries behind,” said Casey. “I want people to get onto the dance floor and shake their booty, like we did in the old days and are still doing today.”

The deluxe remix collection features hot versions of the single served up by a who’s who of dancefloor deliverers, including the legendary Tony Moran and Brian Cua, Ralph Rosario, Eric Kupper, Bob Rosa, LA Rush, Vauxhill, Joe Gillan, Serbiscan and Mark Hagan. KC and the Sunshine Band released Feeling You! The '60s in March 2015, their first album in over a decade. The album is a tribute to the era that shaped H.W. Casey into the revolutionary artist he became in the '70s, as a young person becoming acquainted with the world around him. Just like the rest of America during that time he was shaped by the music, conflicts, innocence, sex, social and political movements, and counterculture of the era – which led to him founding the Dance Revolution and teaching the world how to boogie.

“The widespread social and political issues of the 1960s was, in part, the inspiration to do something that would make people forget about their problems and be happy,” said Casey. “People were looking for something that would divert their attention from the negative aspects of everyday life surrounding them.”

Part one of the two-part Feeling You project, the release featured covers of songs by '60s legends Bob Dylan, Ben E. King, The Kinks, The Righteous Brothers, Jackie DeShannon, Aaron Neville and many more.

“I’m excited for my fans to hear this album,” said Casey. “I really went outside of the box vocally and creatively. Feeling You! The 60s is autobiographical, showing how I feel about love, life and the world through the music of that era.”

Continuing his legacy as The Founder of The Dance Revolution, just a few years ago, KC headlined KC’s Boogie Blast The Ultimate Dance Party tour with stops throughout the US and Canada.
