Biografie

Dutch commercial house act produced by Wessel van Diepen & Dennis van den Driesschen, a 'latino dance troupe' spearheaded by DJ Danski and DJ Delmundo - two Spanish DJs who toured Spain and Ibiza in a bus between 1992 and 1997, bringing "provocative grooves and sexy lyrics" to beaches for impromptu and illegal dance and beach parties. During 1995-96, four dancers/singers (Roy, Denice, Kim and Robin) - who had been regular guests at the beach parties - were added and the enlarged troupe toured beaches throughout Europe. Initially the new foursome worked as dancers to 'spice up' the DJ sets. The act's first single "Up & Down" was released in March 1997 in selected countries (Germany, France, Italy, Scandinavia and Israel), becoming a huge success in Europe (e.g. making the top 5 in The Netherlands, Denmark, France and Spain), before making its way over to America. The UK really caught the 'Venga bug', with combined sales of the act's first 4 singles - 'Boom Boom Boom' (reached #1); 'We're Going To Ibiza' (#1); 'Up & Down' (#3) and 'We Like To Party) appraoching nearly 2 Million. With global sales of over 10 Million singles and 5 Million copies of their first album, Vengaboys have proved to be the most commercially successful Dutch group after 2 Unlimited. After years of hiatus, they now confirmed their return in 2010 composed of Kim, Denice, returning member Robin and the newest member Donny (Ma'Donny) with their come back brand new and official single to be released in UK this May 2010 then follows worldwide very soon which is entitled "Rocket To Uranus" which according to Kim: "This is the most gayest song ever.". They also finished shooting a music video for this single shot in London and L.A.
