KC & The Sunshine Band: KC and the Sunshine Band are still as widely popular today as they were when they first danced into the music scene 40 years ago. Harry Wayne Casey – KC for short – developed a unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of a Latin percussion groove, giving us an impressive string of hits like “GET DOWN TONIGHT”, “THAT’S THE WAY (I LIKE IT)” and “SHAKE YOUR BOOTY”. With sales of over 100 million records, nine Grammy nominations, three Grammy Awards and an American Music Award, KC and the Sunshine Band was one of the most progressive bands of the 70’s and is credited with changing the sound of modern pop music!
Jody Watley featuring Shalamar: In the show & prove style that fans have admired for over three decades, the Grammy-winning hyphenate (singer / songwriter / producer / businesswoman / OG fashionista) one of music’s enduring artists and style icons brings a rebooted Shalamar to the stage. Shalamar was formed in 1977 as a vocal dance trio by Don Cornelius of the Soul Train television show and shortly became a top group with soulful disco sounds. Being at the helm of the Shalamar brand allows Jody Watley to give fans the group’s patented sound (rich harmonies, soulful melodies, funky moves and musical beds with high style). Inspired by her retro-futuristic new album Paradise, with her penchant for current sounds and underground club movements. Longtime fans will especially appreciate that she’ll be teaming up with Gerald Brown, Shalamar’s original lead male vocalist, for the makeover. (That’s his powerhouse voice on the group’s first hit “Take that to the Bank.”) With other classics like “A Night to Remember”, “Second Time Around”, sprinkled with Watley’s signature tunes including “Looking For A New Love” “Don’t You Want Me”, “Friends” along with recent global smash and ode to good times “Nightlife” featuring Gerald Brown. Guaranteed to be 100% funky and a true night to remember.
