Chubby Checker is the only artist to have a song reach #1 on the U.S. best seller charts twice with the 1960s huge smash, “The Twist”. While spending an amazing nine months total on the charts, “The Twist” introduced the concept of “dancing apart to the beat”, and inspired hit songs like “Peppermint Twist”, “Twist & Shout”, and “Twistin’ the Night Away”. “The Twist” also inspired dances like “The Jerk”, “The Hully Gully”, “The Boogaloo”, “The Shake”, and more.
Other hits from Chubby Checker include “Party Time”, “Birdland” and “Twist It Up”. Eventually, Chubby Checker’s movements were incorporated into all songs that had a beat, creating “The Boogie” movement, a fixture in Rock ‘n Roll and popular music during the 1960s.
The platinum-selling artist has never slowed down over the years with 9 double-sided hits, continuous touring, and his lucrative snack food business dedicated to commemorating over 50 years of “The Twist”. On October 10, 2018, Chubby Checker was honored as Casino Entertainer of the Year.
