Chubby Checker Coming to Delta Downs — Win Tickets
The guy who gave us the biggest dance craze of the Rock and Roll Era, Chubby Checker, will be at the Delta Downs Event Center on Saturday, January 11th at 7 p.m. and you can win tickets to see this legend on 92-9 The Lake.
Many people tend to think of Chubby as a one-hit wonder but he not only had a great many more hits, he is one of the very few artist to achieve another feat on the charts.
Say the name 'Chubby Checker' and people will, rightly so, say, "The Twist", but did you know that Chubby had 23 Top 40 Hits and 4 million sellers? Above and beyond that, Chubby holds another record on the charts. His song 'The Twist' went to Number One ... Twice!
Back in August of 1960, Chubby remade a song by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters called, 'The Twist.' Hanks version only made it to #28, but Chubby's version went to #1. A little over a year later, Chubby's version went back on the charts and went to #1 again.
Chubby had even more success with the song when he teamed up with The Fat Boys for a remake of the song in 1988.
Checker puts on a great show and really is one of the nicest people you could ever want to meet.
Chubby will be at Delta Downs on January 11th and you can get tickets at Delta Downs or at their website. We'll also be giving away tickets on 92.9 The Lake.
