KC and The Sunshine Band: The Miami Innovation

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 22 July 1975

Studio has given to the world. They are Harry Casey and Rick Finch, the keyboard and bass players with the Sunshine Band and, coincidentally, the two white members in an otherwise all-black band.

Total word count of piece: 1937
