KC Betrayed By Boogie Shoes

KC of KC and The Sunshine Band was injured May 7th when he fell off the stage during the Cinco de Mayo Festival in Phoenix.

The group was two songs into its set when KC, whose real name is Harry Wayne Casey, fell headfirst off a 6-foot-tall stage in front of an estimated 5,000 people. The 54-year-old singer resumed the show and was later treated for a sprained knee and a cut over his eye that needed six stitches.

Casey blamed the unexpected swan dive on a new pair of shoes he was wearing. Ironically, the accident happened just as the band started playing “Boogie Shoes.”

“I picked the wrong pair of boogie shoes!” Casey said as he was recovering in his Miami home.

No tour dates were canceled.
