The Sun still Shines for KCs Disco Days
By Rick Coates
Few musicians can take credit for actually creating a music style, but when you ask who was responsible for the disco music scene of the early 70s, one Howard Wayne Casey comes to mind.
Casey founded the KC and the Sunshine Band in 1973 and is the force behind such hits as (Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty, Give It Up, Keep It Comin Love, Thats The Way (I Like It), Im Your Boogie Man, Get Down Tonight, and Boogie Shoes. Along with the Bee Gees and Donna Summer, KC pioneered the disco music and dance scene.
Howard Wayne Casey, nicknamed KC, brings his band to Northern Michigan this weekend to the Odawa Casino Resort in Petoskey. The Saturday concert will be the bands first appearance in Northern Michigan in years.
I am looking forward to it up there. Is it snowing yet? I love the snow, laughs KC. I have been checking the weather up there and see that it has been great all summer. But truly I like the snow. I live in Miami and we dont get snow, so I love it because I get to see it and then leave it.
