Come on baby, let’s twist into the 21st Century when Chubby Checker arrives with his band, the Wildcats. Checker’s seminal recording of “The Twist” climbed to No. 1 on two separate occasions (in 1960 and again in ’62). “The Twist” spawned a massive dance craze and thrust Chubby Checker into the national spotlight.
This event is at The Palladium Theater, 253 5th Avenue N., St. Petersburg.
