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 Caseyâ€”KC for shortâ€”developed a unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of a Latin percussion groove, releasing an impressive string of hits like â€śGet Down Tonight,â€ť â€śThatâ€™s The Way (I Like It)â€ť and â€śShake Your Booty.â€ť 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, writing songs, and performing around the world and has no intention of stopping.
Their first record, â€śBlow Your Whistle,â€ť made the top 15 on the R&B chart. Their second album, â€śKC and the Sunshine Band,â€ť was released in 1975, went triple-platinum and contained the No. 1 hits â€śGet Down Tonight,â€ť â€śThatâ€™s the Way (I Like It),â€ť â€śBoogie Shoesâ€ť and â€śRock Your Baby.â€ť KC and the Sunshine Band became the first act to score four No. 1 pop singles in one 12-month period since the Beatles in 1964.
In the last decade, KC has continued to influence the dance and disco scene by releasing new music, most recently his single, â€śUnconditional Love featuring Bimbo Jones.â€ť In March of 2015, KC and the Sunshine Band released â€śFeeling You! The 60s.â€ť The album was a tribute to the era that shaped KC into the revolutionary artist he became in the 70s.
Hershey Theatre opened in September 1933. It has established itself as the areaâ€™s premier performing arts center, presenting the finest in touring Broadway shows, classical music and world-renowned entertainers.
