About The Artist

Born in 1941 South Carolina, Chubby Checker is a legendary artist that has made his fame not only through sheer talent but through a series of successful albums and hit singles that spawned a multitude of dance crazes. He was always an entertainer ever since he was little, and it was only a matter of time before he privately recorded for Dick Clark of American Bandstand and hit the charts in 1959 with his first single "The Class". But in 1960 he hit it big with his most famous song "The Twist" which came along with it a dance craze like none other, which he would do again and again with hits like "The Pony", "Limbo Rock", and more. He has a plethora of hit singles that were wild successes throughout the decades, never once slowing down.


Breakthrough Album

Showing promise from the very start, Chubby Checker was a star ever since his first release of "The Class", a novelty song where he imitated a multitude of famous artists at the time, but this was only the beginning for Chubby Checker. This song was a hit in 1959, but he blew that song out of the water with his #1 hit the following year, "The Twist". The Twist became an international hit as well as a dance craze that prompted dancing from teenagers and adults alike, something that had never happened before. This song started Chubby Checker down the path of songs and dances that would make him a musical icon for years to come. It is also the only single to ever make it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 twice during two separate runs.


Chubby Checker Trivia

There has been much speculation behind the names of famous artists, and with Chubby Checker's real name being Ernest Evans, people have been wondering what made him think of the name in the first place. It all started when he was younger and would entertain customers at work with songs and jokes, with his friends and co-workers ultimately giving him the nickname "Chubby", which he would stick with and take on when presenting his music. And it was during a recording session where he had just finished doing a Fats Domino impression that Dick Clark that Clark's wife asked him his name, where he responded Chubby. With a clever play on words, she associated his "Chubby" with the "Fat" in "Fats Domino" and finished the association with Checker as in Domino. Ernest loved this and stuck with Chubby Checker ever since.


Fan Experience

Chubby Checker is one of those artists that has been influencing the music scene and the artists within it for decades on end, even if those artists don't realize it. Because with his famous hits like "The Twist", "Pony Time", "Limbo Rock", and so many more, Chubby Checker had injected a style and feeling that no artist has been able to duplicate or replicate since. So it doesn't matter if you've been listening to Chubby Checker since the 60's or you've recently just come across his music, because when you head out to see him perform live on the stage you'll immediately be overcome with a feeling of musical bliss that is unmatched in this day and age.
