The mix of horns, drums, guitar, electric organ gelled in a way that brought them mass appeal from a cross section of audiences. A revival of interest in disco in the 1990s brought the band back together, with mostly new members, for new tours. In more recent years, KC and the Sunshine Band’s best-known songs have reached an entirely new crop of listeners as they have been included in several editions of the popular Dance Dance Revolution series of dance video games.

New Year’s Eve revelers can continue the party after the show in the Pechanga Theater in many of the resort/casino’s venues. Starting at 8:00p.m., revelers who are 21 and older are invited to the Eagle’s Nest for a New Year’s Eve DJ dance party to remember. DJs will be spinning the hottest dance songs of the year, and years past. Every year, Eagle’s Nest New Year’s Eve partygoers come dressed to impress. Cover charge is $50 and the Eagle’s Nest is open until 2:00a.m.

The Pechanga casino floor proves to be a popular spot to ring in the New Year. Celebrators stake out their spots encircling The Round Bar, enjoying beverages and taking in the scene of the partiers all around them.

For the night owls, NYE Cosmik Bingo gets underway at 11:30p.m. inside Pechanga Bingo and includes DJ dancing, no host bar, additional games for prizes and of course, cash when winners yell out “Bingo!” Players can rest up from the night before and then come back out to Pechanga Bingo on New Year’s Day at 1:30p.m. for the 29 Game Mega Matinee in which regular games pay up to $1,199.
