In 1998 the world is introduced to the uplifting sounds of the Vengaboys. Delivering multi-platinum pop-dance hits back to back with Up & Down, We Like To Party!, Boom Boom Boom Boom!!, We're Going To Ibiza and more. The Vengaboys reached the top of the charts in over 50 countries including the U.K., Germany, the Benelux, Spain, South Africa, Thailand, Poland, Australia and Mexico.
In 1999 it's America's turn. Up & Down and We Like To Party! storm to first place in the Billboard dance charts. Their debut album "Greatest Hits!" reaches USA gold status and they were nominated for MTV Best Breakthrough of the Year award.
The Vengaboys received numerous awards including the TMF Award for Best Dance Act and receive an award for being Hollands' most succesful export 'product' that year. (Yes, we beat tulips, agricultural products, and cheese..)
And the hits kept on coming; Shalala lala, Kiss (When The Sun Don't Shine) and Uncle John From Jamaica all reach top 5 in numerous countries. In their entire history, EVERY vengaboys single released, became a UK Top 40 hit.
The group embarked on a world tour through the U.S., Australasia, Japan and South America. Then, after releasing a ballad as their goodbye single, the group calls it quits and is ready for retirement. Not a real crazy idea after selling 20 million singles and five million albums!
Missing the stage and the applause, the group decided to get back on stage in 2007.
In the summer of 2013 Vengaboys released their highly anticipated track ‘Hot Hot Hot’ - one of their favorite summer jams. During a premiere performance in front of totalling 200.000 E-Vengalists body temperatures rose to dangerous heights and they simply blew the roof of the Amsterdam Arena..
