KC & The Sunshine Band – Get Down Tonight (TK Records)

A record store employee and part-timer at TK Records, Harry Wayne Casey came to fame when forming his own band, KC & The Sunshine Band, with musicians both from TK and local band the Miami Junkanoo Band, prior being introduced to Richard Finch who was doin’ sound engineering for the label.
This would mark the beginning of  the Casey-Finch musical collaboration/signature, somewhat embodying the Miami Disco Sound along with other artists they produced such as George McCrae and Jimmy Bo Horne… A signature characterized by the presence of lush piano/synth arrangements over bouncing grooves…
Taken from their 1975 release self-titled album, ‘Get Down Tonight’ would be the first of their 5 #1 on Billboard 100 and therefore among their biggest classics along with  ‘That’s the Way (I Like It)’, Casey-‘(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty’, ‘I’m Your Boogie Man’, ‘Keep It Comin’ Love’ and ‘Please Don’t Go.’
