Here is a band that has been famous for their funky R&B party songs since the 1970s, delivering some favorite hits like “Get Down Tonight” and “That’s the Way I Like It”—who hasn’t heard these funky dance anthems at one time or another? KC and his band are a disco mix of horns, drums, guitars and an electric organ that combined together to create a classic funky sound. Whoever said disco was dead? Known for having a fun run throughout the ‘70s, you think KC & The Sunshine Band would’ve lost its steam when a new wave and hair metal came along—times were a-changin’. By the early ‘80s the band had split, but due to a new interest in disco and everything ‘70s, KC and The Sunshine band came back in action and ready to boogie by the ‘90s. Ring in 2014 and dance away 2013 with KC and The Sunshine Band this New Year’s Eve at the Pechanga Resort and Casino. New Year’s Eve does not end with this fine musical ensemble—attendees can keep the party going and head over to the casino’s Eagle’s Nest, where there will be DJs and dancing until 2a.m. Expecting a hangover on New Year’s Day? Not a problem—everyone is welcome to spend the night and rest up to enjoy Pechanga’s Bingo on New Year’s Day for a shot at some serious money. Party, and maybe win some cash—it wouldn’t be a bad way to start off the New Year! (Dulce Balandran)
