Chubby Checker coming to Quakertown Thursday

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - When Chubby Checker hit the stage on American Bandstand in the 1960s the dance world changed forever, bringing sex appeal to the dance floor.

"We brought that to the dance floor because when we did the twist a new style came out," said Checker.

He said that style is now a permanent fixture in entertainment and you can do the twist, along with Chubby Checker on Thursday.

Chubby Checker will be performing his hits at the Quakertown Amphitheater.

He said he loves to visit the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas.

"This area has a lot of memories for me and some very warm times and it's just wonderful," said Checker.

The concert with Chubby Checker and Charlie Thomas' Drifters will be held on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 8 p.m.
