KC and the Sunshine Band are as popular today as they were when they first danced into the music scene nearly 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 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 1970s and is credited with changing the sound of modern pop music.
Evelyn “Champagne” King’s big break came at age 15, when she was discovered while she sang at work, subbing for her sister as a cleaning woman at Philadelphia's Sigma Studios. She was signed to a contract, and her first album “Smooth Talk” produced the disco smash “Shame.” The follow-up, “I Don't Know If It's Right,” was a major mid-tempo R&B hit. In 1981, “I'm in Love” was a #1 dance hit. She followed up with the “Get Loose” album in 1982 and another smash, the classic anthem “Love Come Down.” Not only did King survive as a singing star into the 1980s, she also is still recording and touring frequently today.
