In June of 1959, Chubby recorded "The Twist". "The Twist" was something special and worked hard promoting the record by undertaking non-stop rounds of TV dates, interviews and live performances.

Fourteen months later, in the summer of 1960, "The Twist" was a hit. "The Twist" was not only the #1 song but it introduced the concept of "dancing apart to the beat". Over the next few years, endless songs incorporating "The Twist" into its name sprang up such as "Peppermint Twist", "Twist and Shout" and "Twistin' the Night Away". In addition, each new song brought a new dance involving "dancing apart to the beat" such as "The Jerk", "The Hully Gully", "The Boogaloo" and "The Shake". At the forefront was Chubby with "The Fly", "The Pony" and "The Hucklebuck". 

Folks, you don't want to miss this living legend in concert! The dance floor will be open so you can come twist with us and Chubby Checker!
