Before the reign of Miami Sound Machine, KC & The Sunshine Band were theembodiment of the Miami sound. The songwriting team of Harry Wayne Casey &Richard Finch was behind the Sunshine Band, and by 1975 their domination ofthe charts and dance floors was near total. The Sunshine band became thefirst act to score four #1 pop singles in one 12-month period since theBeatles in 1964 (three of those were #1 R&B as well). The band's string ofhit singles continued with "I'm Your Boogie Man" (#1 pop, #3 R&B, 1977) and"Keep It Comin' Love" (#2 pop, #1 R&B, 1977).
Though KC is one of the artists most closely associated with the disco era,he continued making music long after all the mirror balls got moth-balled.A popular live attraction across the country and overseas for the last twodecades, KC and his crew will be spreading a little sunshine on tourthroughout the U.S. this summer.
