New Plymouth District Council is bringing the boogie to the TSB Bowl of Brooklands with A Summer's Day Disco in January.

The Summer at the Bowl concert will take place on Saturday, January 11 and features KC and the Sunshine Band, Earth Wind and Fire Experience featuring Al McKay, Boney M and The Australian Bee Gees Show.

NPDC Recreation and Culture Manager Teresa Turner says the concert will have a party atmosphere as the Bowl becomes a Boogie Wonderland.

"Rumours about disco's death have been greatly exaggerated and these iconic bands will get everyone up and dancing. There will be so many great songs for people to groove to from Get Down Tonight to Daddy Cool to Staying Alive – it's going to be an awesome night."

"Our Venues team works hard to bring a wide range of acts to our district and it's going to be another great Summer at the Bowl with A Summer's Day Disco on January 11 and Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals on February 21."

KC and the Sunshine Band chart-topping hits include That's The Way (I Like It), (Shake Shake Shake) Shake Your Booty and Get Down Tonight while the Earth Wind and Fire Experience featuring legendary guitarist Al McKay will perform hits including Let's Groove, September, Shining Star and Boogie Wonderland.
