KC and the Sunshine Band is one of the most recognizable names from the disco craze of the 1970s. KC, otherwise known as Harry Wayne Casey garnered a total of nine Grammy nominations, winning three of them, including two for his work on the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack. He also won an American Music Award.

KC has sold 75 million records, keeping him on a winning streak that lasted well into the 1980s. KC shares a distinction with The Beatles as the first artist to have four #1 singles in the span of one year: "Boogie Shoes," "Rock Your Baby," "Get Down Tonight," and "That's The Way (I Like It)." KC's other hits like "(Shake, Shake, Shake), Shake Your Booty" and "I'm Your Boogie Man" still stand as milestones of the disco age.

Back then, KC and the Sunshine Band were the most successful promulgators of the boisterous, tropically funky dance music known as The Miami Sound. Formed in 1973 in Hialeah, Fla., and originally named KC And The Sunshine Junkanoo Band, the band ruled both the Pop and R&B charts, as well as the dance floors throughout the 1970s.

With funky warm and vibrant tones, the brass-oriented disco flavor that comprised the backbone of the band's sound was flexible enough to incorporate the many styles that KC soaked up in Miami: Motown, Funk, Latin percussion, Carribbean spice, Southern soul, and groovin‚ pop hooks all seeped into the mix to create a tasteful blend of homegrown music that is purely KC.
