Join members of the band and leader Harry Wayne “KC” Casey as they recount the story of how their band quickly became, and has remained, a household name. KC and The Sunshine Band’s classic songs like “Shake, Shake, Shake (Shake Your Booty),” “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It),” “Boogie Shoes,” and more topped the charts worldwide and, still today, are some of the most-played party songs of the modern decade.
Utilizing first-hand accounts from band members, interviews with family and friends, and archival footage, each episode of TV One’s Unsung, weaves a tale of the highs and lows of a life in the limelight.
