That's the way, uh-huh uh-huh I like it, uh-huh, uh-huh, and that was the way many people around the world like it. However, this is only one of the hits that made KC and the Sunshine Band a popular and successful disco group. The musical group was formed in 1973 by Harry Wayne Casey or “KC”. He and his songwriter partner with Richard Find were the initial members of the band. The Sunshine Band was complete when Fermin Goytisolo, Robert Johnson and Jerome Smith entered the band.

Their debut album Do It Good (1974) was characterized by an R&B sound, but it was not very successful and popular in the mainstream radio. “Blow Your Whistle” and “Sound Your Funky Horn” were two of the singles encompassed in that album. Two years later K.C. and the Sunshine Band released what will become a platinum album KC and the Sunshine Band (1975) and give them the first hit in US “Get Down Tonight”. Following the success of “Get Down Tonight”, “That's the Way (I Like It)” was number one in 1975. A year later, they released their fourth album Part 3 which included the singles “I'm Your Boogie Man”, “(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty” and “Keep It Comin' Love."

The Sound of Sunshine (1975), Who Do Ya Love (1978) and Do You Wanna Go Party (1979) were other albums released by them during the seventies. In 1981, they released Space Cadet and The Painter which were not as successful as their ninth album All in a Night's Work (1982) with the single “Give It Up.” In 1991, the renewed interest in Disco music results in a reform of the band. KC Ten in 1983, Oh Yeah! in 1993 and I'll Be There For You in 2001 are the other albums released by K.C. and the Sunshine Band.
