They’re back! Grammy-award winning KC and the Sunshine Band will perform in Tempe April 8 in a fund-raiser concert.

Grammy-award winners KC and the Sunshine Band will perform with special guest Boogie Knights at A Night at the Ballpark Saturday, April 8, at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

The concert serves as a fundraiser for the Tempe Diablos and Mesa HoHoKams, with proceeds benefitting both organizations.

KC and the Sunshine Band is a disco funk music group that formed in Florida in 1973. The group is best known for its hit songs “That’s the Way (I Like It);” “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty;” and “I’m Your Boogie Man.”

Its self-titled second album was released in 1975, went triple platinum and yielded its first U.S. hit, “Get Down Tonight.” In 1979, the group took home a Grammy for Album of the Year with “Saturday Night Fever.”

The band’s frontman, Harry Casey, has had his music featured at the Super Bowl, World Series and other major sporting events.
