From the days as an intern at tiny T. K. Records to his chart-topping heyday as leader of KC and The Sunshine Band, THAT'S THE WAY I LIKE IT: THE HARRY WAYNE CASEY STORY offers a backstage pass and a ringside seat to one of the most compelling chapters of American music history.

Riding the crest of his infectious dancefloor anthems-Get Down Tonight, Shake Your Booty, and of course, That's The Way (I Like It) - Harry Wayne Casey, a.k.a. "KC", became the most beloved figure of the disco era, setting the tempo for an upbeat cultural revolution that extinguished the gloom of the Vietnam War and put a smile back on America's face as hundreds of thousands of young fans boogied to KC and The Sunshine Band's hook-laden sounds.

Charting the ups and downs of KC's 30-year career, this photo packed portraint of Miami's first and greatest pop musical export invites the reader on a tour through the glitterball past and into the future, as KC continues his journey into the 21st century with his dance-happy music intact.


On january 31, 1951, at 9:20 a.m. - a wednesday -i was born in miami, florida. growing up i harbored dreams of becoming a musician, performer and recording artist. it was all i ever thought about, or wanted in life. this book is that story in pictures and in words. i hope it conveys at least a small sense of the fun that i've had making music for the past four decades and counting. special thanks to irene marie, whose inspiration set this project in motion, as well as to the many other talented people who devoted their time and energy to the preparation of this book. there have been so many people along the way who have been a part of my story - both the living and the deceased - that i would be remiss not to include them here. this book is dedicated to them. they are:
