KC and the Sunshine Band became the first act to score four #1 pop singles in one year since the Beatles. Everyone has danced to the triple-platinum “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It),” and “Rock Your Baby”. And of course, there’s the wildly popular Boogie Shoes, from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack!
KC and the Sunshine Band are still as widely popular today as they were 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. 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 play 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.
The Pensacola performance is Sunday, August 27, 2023
at 7:00 p.m. at the Pensacola Saenger Theatre. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.
