Biography

The "KC" in disco hitmakers KC and the Sunshine Band, Harry Wayne Casey was the co-founder, lead singer and producer for the hit dance/R&B group, which racked up an impressive roster of hits at the height of the disco era, including such effervescent songs as "Get Down Tonight," "That's the Way (I Like It)," "Boogie Shoes" and others. Casey launched the Sunshine Band in 1973 with bassist-engineer Richard Finch while both were employed at the soul/dance label TK Records. The group's unique sound - a blend of Motown soul and Caribbean dance music that hinged on a trance-like axis of constantly repeated lyrics and heavy percussion - found favor with clubgoers in the mid-1970s, who helped to provide Casey with five No. 1 singles and four platinum albums before the fizz dissolved from the disco scene in the early 1980s. The 1990s boom in Seventies nostalgia revived interest in Casey's music, prompting him to assemble a new Sunshine Band for numerous live dates and occasional, largely ignored new recordings. The Sunshine Band's enduring popularity underscored Harry Wayne Casey's status as one of the most successful purveyors of dance music in the 1970s and beyond.
