Recognized for their danceable music, KC and the Sunshine Band have been disco royalty since the 70’s. In 1975, the band’s second album went triple platinum that spawned the hit singles “Get Down Tonight” and “That’s The Way (I Like It).” 1976 brought another set of hits off the groups’ third album Part 3 such as “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty” and “I’m Your Boogie Man.” After a revival of disco and dance music in the 90’s KC and the Sunshine Band recaptured the glory years with several of the band’s hits featured in Dance Dance Revolution video games and performed on national shows such as “American Idol.” KC was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002.
