A man who knows how to please a crowd, I caught up with Harry Wayne "K.C." Casey from legendary outfit KC and the Sunshine Band as he was at home in Miami, Florida.

As we look towards the 2014 event, we're proud to launch the new Bluesfest Discovery Page on the AU - a section that highlights artists we think you should discover yourselves, while also giving you the chance to win tickets to the festival!
