The Grammy Award-winning band brings its classic tunes to The Event Center

 

Famous for blending pop, reggae and Latin genres, KC and The Sunshine Band will bring its unique sound found in hits — such as “Get Down Tonight” and “That’s the Way (I Like It)” — to The Event Center at SugarHouse Casino on Saturday, August 11, at 8 p.m. Tickets for the band’s show will go on sale on Friday, April 27, and cost from $59 to $79.

Delivering feel-good music for more than 37 years, the “sunshine sound” that originated from the lead singer’s Florida roots earned KC and The Sunshine Band four No. 1 records and multiple Grammy, People’s Choice and American Music awards. Other infectious tracks from the band include “Boogie Shoes,” “Rock Your Baby” and “Sound Your Funky Horn.”

KC and The Sunshine Band was an immediate success with the release of its first studio album in 1973, “Blow Your Whistle,” which landed a spot in the top 15 on the R&B charts. Two years later, the band released its second album, “KC and The Sunshine Band,” which went triple platinum and won an American Music Award for Best R&B Artist.

Throughout the band’s many years of making music, it has sold more than 100 million records, sharing its fusion of music genres with fans worldwide. KC and The Sunshine Band continues to keep the 1970s disco era alive with its timeless classics that reach many generations.

Find more information about KC and The Sunshine Band on its official website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
