Music legend K.C. and the Sunshine Band will bring back the 1970’s to First Council Casino north of Newkirk, Saturday, Nov. 21st.

The band, founded by Harry Wayne Casey in 1973, is on tour in support of one of their new albums “Feeling You! The 60’s.”

“We are excited about the tour,” Casey said last week.  “It’s been a fun tour so far, the fans have been very gracious and supportive.”

Casey said the current tour has a balance of their top hits from the 1970’s plus some 1960’s cover tunes.

“I was going to shows and hearing artists do more of their obscure songs,” Casey said.  “I thought it would be cool to do some cover tunes from artists like Bob Dylan and The Righteous Brothers, songs that people know and like.

“I think it’s been a good addition to the show,” he added.

The show will also feature many of KC and the Sunshine Bands top hits including “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s the Way I Like It,” and Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake Your Booty."

Casey described their music as ‘fun” and kept people’s minds off the issues of the 1970’s.

Their music has won three grammy awards and been featured on over 200 motion pictures.

The second album, soon to be released, will be a compilation of Christmas tunes.

Kay County wanted the old high school so bad now they want to tear it down. Why don't the court house use it for more office space or storage. Also why don't the elect to vote Jason Orr that isn't from Newkirk out, and why is it that we have an assistant city manager we never had one in the past so Jason Orr don't have to deal with the citizens. All the firemen do an outstanding job. Leave well enough alone. Lets get people that are Newkirk natives in office instead of people that aren't.
