East Meadow - On August 23, KC and the Sunshine Band played a free concert at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, New York, for an excellent turnout.
KC was backed by a full band of musicians, instrumentalists, entertainers and dancers, commencing his set with "Shake Your Booty," where he was dressed in black.
It was followed by "Boogie Shoes," which was inducted into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress in 2012, and "Yes I'm Ready,"
"What a beautiful night," he exclaimed. "Look how young you all are. Oh my God. I am 63 years old now. What the hell happened? I can't remember if that's the way I like it," he joked.
KC's career has spanned 41 years, and he realized that there may be many people in the crowd who do not know who he and his band are. "I am your mother's 'N Sync," he told the audience. "Or I could have been your grandmother's 'N Sync. Get a good look at me, because this is what Justin Timberlake is going to look like in 30 years," prior to noting that he and Timberlake share the exact same birthday, with KC being exactly 30 years older than the pop superstar.
Other noteworthy vocals included "Please Don't Go," where he took his time on the tune and it allowed him to showcase his velvet vocals, and "Bring it On Home," the latter of which featured a neat saxophone solo, among other woodwind instruments.
He continued with "I'm Your Boogie Man," "Keep It Comin,'" as well as "Rock Your Baby," which was a fun sing-along. "Everybody rock with me," he said midway through the song.
KC closed his set with two audience favorites "That's the Way (I Like It)" and his signature song "Get Down Tonight," where he was able to bring down the entire Eisenhower Park crowd.
The Verdict
Overall, KC and the Sunshine Band put on an entertaining show at Eisenhower Park in Long Island, as they dusted off their classics and performed them for a new generation of fans. There was a feeling of nostalgia in the venue. He commanded the stage well and audience was aware of the fact that they were in the presence of a pop and disco veteran. They are worth seeing live whenever they are in town. Well done.
