Chubby Checker Booking Profile
Recognized as one of the top rock ‘n roll performers of the ‘60’s, Chubby Checker and the Wildcats will bring the audience out of their seats in a combination of sound, music, spirit, and energy that is uniquely “Checker” style. Checker signed with Cameo-Parkway Records in 1959. His first two singles, “The Class” and “Dancing Dinosaur” were minor hits. Cameo encouraged him to make his own version of “The Twist,” a song originally written and performed by Hank Ballard, which was already having modest success on the charts. It was Checker’s version however, and his accompanying dance routine, that gave the song new life and he was dubbed “King of the Twist.” The artist responsible for the “dancing apart to the beat” movement in music, Chubby Checker’s break-through record The Twist is the only record in pop music history to become a #1 hit in two different years, 1960 and 1962. “The King of the Twist” has sold over 250 million records worldwide in the course of his four-decade career.
