KC and the Sunshine Band comprised, in the main, session musicians from the TK Studios which were owned by Henry Stone (who had run a record distribution company in the United States for 20 years).
Harry Casey (“KC”) started out singing in church and in various little local talent shows around Miami.
Smith and Johnson had previously worked with Betty Wright. Guitarist Jerome Smith died when he fell off the bulldozer he was driving and was crushed by the machine.
