KC and the Sunshine Band is set to tour Manila in September to bring back memories of the exciting and vibrant disco era of the 1970s at a live concert on September 14 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Ovation Productions is presenting the popular American pop group on its debut local concert. The one-night event will re-live a memorable time in music through songs and dance moves that reflect the spirit, mood, style and sound of the ‘70s disco generation that saw the rise of KC and the Sunshine Band, led by Harry Wayne Casey – a.k.a. KC – which racked up some of the era’s biggest, most recognizable disco dance hits.
Still as popular and as appealing as when it burst into the music and concert scene some 40 years ago, KC & the Sunshine Band has been credited for having transformed the sound of modern pop music as its leader developed an audio rainbow of diverse roots, with a unique fusion of R&B, folk and a hint of a Latin percussion groove.
Their hits include “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It),” “Shake Your Booty,” among many others.
Most recently, between March and April of this year, KC and the Sunshine Band reaped success on the Billboard Dance Club play chart with “I’m Feelin’ You,” a collaboration with dance act Bimbo Jones.
With sales of over 100 million records, nine Grammy nominations, three Grammy Awards and one American Music Award, the group has definitely stood the test of time to maintain its top position in the music and recording industry.
