KC AND THE SUNSHINE BAND TAKES ON THE DECADE THAT SHAPED AMERICA ON MARCH 1Features Songs by Sixties Legends Bob Dylan, Ben E. King, The Kinks, The Righteous Brothers, Jackie DeShannon, Aaron Neville & More MIAMI, Fla. (Dec. 16, 2014) – KC and The Sunshine Band dominated the 1970s, ruling the airwaves with a unique meeting of Caribbean, pop, R&B and latin styles that inspired infectious grooves and the distinctive Sunshine Sound, producing such #1 hits as “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s the Way (I Like It),” “Boogie Shoes,” "Shake Your Booty,” and many more. Before he impacted the world, teaching them how to boogie, Harry Wayne “KC” Casey was, like the rest of America, being shaped by the music, conflicts, innocence, sex, social and political movements and counterculture of the 1960s.
“The widespread social and political issues of the 1960s were, in part, the inspiration to do something that would make people forget about their problems and be happy,” said Casey. “People were looking for something that would divert their attention from the negative aspects of everyday life surrounding them.” KC and The Sunshine Band pays tribute to the era on March 10, 2015, with Feeling You! The 60's. The album, part one of the two-part Feeling You project, features covers of songs by sixties legends Bob Dylan, Ben E. King, The Kinks, The Righteous Brothers, Jackie DeShannon, Aaron Neville and many more (full track listing below).
“I’m excited for my fans to hear this album,” said Casey. “I really went outside of the box vocally and creatively. Feeling You! The 60's is autobiographical, showing how I feel about love, life and the world through the music of that era.”
