Harry Casey, better known as "K.C." all his life, started KC & the Sunshine Band in 1973, incorporating a love of horns and R&B rhythms. By the mid-1970s, the band was leading the way in dance clubs. Ahead of their upcoming Milwaukee show at Festa Italiana Saturday night July 20th, K.C. talks with Eric about all the action then and since, including how the band got started, #1 hits he wrote and offered to others, a terrible car accident that sidelined him for a year, how Arsenio Hall coaxed him out of retirement in 1993, and more.
K.C. has over 200 movie soundtrack credits and is often called the "Father of the Dance Revolution." K.C. and the Sunshine Band continues to tour in 2019 (pretty much weekends only), shaking booties and getting down at night - because that's the way (uh huh) they like it.
