What is the real name of the lead singer of K.C. and The Sunshine Band? Where does he live?
—Jane Morris, Hurdle Mills, N.C.

Harry Wayne Casey is the "K.C." behind 1970s hits such as "That's The Way I Like It," "Get Down Tonight" and "Boogie Shoes." He lives—where else?—in the Sunshine State of Florida, where he was born, and still tours and performs. In 1982, a serious automobile accident left him partially paralyzed for six months, forcing him to re-learn how to walk, dance and play the piano.
