Rock legend Sammy Hagar today announced that KC and the Sunshine Band will join the lineup of his second annual High Tide Beach Party & Car Show on the shores of the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach, California.

KC and The Sunshine Band, led by Harry Wayne “KC” Casey, formed in 1973 with one single purpose: to create instant happiness through music, blending a unique fusion of Caribbean, R&B and funk dubbed the “Miami sound”. They topped the charts with singles including “That’s the Way (I Like It),” “Get Down Tonight,” and “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty,” tallying worldwide sales of over 100 million, and receiving numerous awards.
KC shared the news with fans today, as well. Watch his announcement here.

Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson) with special guests Richie Sambora, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Beach Boys, Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe, Night Ranger, Blue Öyster Cult, Extreme, Steel Panther, Tony Lewis from The Outfield, Patty Smyth and Scandal, and more.
