Job Title
Songwriter, Band Leader

Harry Casey wrote a few songs and headed into a Miami studio with the simple goal of making a dance record. He used the studio musicians and would later ask those guys to tour with him when his record became a big hit. KC and the Sunshine Band helped define the disco era, even though Harry always saw his music more as R&B. When his music was used in the movie "Saturday Night Fever" he forever became intertwined with the term disco. Regardless of the era of pop music, if people want to dance, Harry's music will be played.
