Chubby Checker

August 20

Chubby Checker, considered the “King of the Twist,” is one of the few entertainers who successfully sustained a musical career over three-and-a-half decades. He is the only artist to have had five albums in the Top 12 at once. His recording of “The Twist” was the #1 song on the charts once in 1960, and again in 1961 – the only song ever to achieve this feat. He returned to the top of the charts again in 2007 with “Knock Down the Walls.” Harrah’s Cherokee 800.745.3000
