Who of you can’t recite some—or for many, all—of the words to the hit song, “That’s the Way (I Like It)?” With music that has been featured in more than 100 motion pictures, television shows and national advertising campaigns, KC and The Sunshine Band have been credited as the founders of disco. Their feel-good dance music is based on KC’s love of R&B Pop and a strong desire to make people happy with his music.
Grammy award-winner KC grabs time in between performances and touring to write new material. Fans new and old are in for a treat with the band’s new album, “Feeling You” which will be available this summer. The new album includes a variety of dance music from their new work plus a healthy dose of songs from the ’60s. Fast forward four decades later and KC is still getting people out of their seats dancing.
