K.C. brought his “Boogie Shoes” to Casino Rama

Published in the Ticketmaster Fan Reviews

Disco was king at Casino Rama on February 11, when K.C. and The Sunshine Band stopped by to “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty”. Harry Wayne “K.C.” Casey and his band of stellar musicians played a high energy show of their distinctive disco, funk, soul and pop blend that had the crowd dancing and “Get(ting) Down Tonight”. While K.C. was noticeably suffering the effects of a cold, that didn’t stop him from¬†singing and dancing through a selection of his greatest hits.

After delivering a self-deprecating monologue about how his just turned 60 and has put on some weight since the band’s glory years, K.C. kept a good pace with his four back-up dancers/singers, all much younger, demonstrating that, still, “I’m Your Boogie Man”, with the crowd enthusiastically responding “That’s the Way (I Like It)” (uh-huh, uh-huh).¬† While some singers’ voices tend to deteriorate over the years (the high notes can sometimes be hard to hit), K.C.’s voice was as strong as ever.

After holding a high note for an extended period in one of his songs, K.C. confidently stated, “Eat your heart out, Adam Lambert.”

A highlight of the evening was a heart-felt rendition of his classic hit, “Please Don’t Go”.
