The Funkiest White Boy Ever? 

In 1972 two guys, Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch started what would become KC and the Sunshine Band. In the end, this group would only be rivaled by The Bee Gees for the title “Kings of the Disco.”
With such songs as “I’m Your Boogie Man”, “Shake Your Booty”, “That’s The Way (I Like It)”, and “Boogie Shoes”, KC and the Sunshine Band are still thought highly of today.

With the demise of Disco, the group disbanded in the 80’s only to reform during the 90’s as a touring band. According to their agent’s website, you can hire them for you private or public event for “$40,000 or more). Yikes, that’s a lot of cash.

The group was nominated for nine Grammy awards, eventually earning three, and sold millions of records worldwide. Not bad for a couple of guys from Miami.

For the streamed song I chose “Boogie Shoes” simply because it’s my favorite by the group.

In 1990 KC and the Sunshine Band released a Best Of album that sold extremely well.
