UNCASVILLE, CT (September 12, 2014) – Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den Hall of Fame has been awarded to great acts such as Eddie Money, Little Anthony & The Imperials, America and John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band since its incarnation. The exclusive club recognizes a distinct class of performers whose longevity and dedication have helped make the Wolf Den as successful as it is today.  Mohegan Sun is very proud to recognize and celebrate Chubby Checker’s involvement with the Wolf Den and more importantly his passion and importance to music over the last half century.
The induction ceremony will take place on the Wolf Den stage prior to the start of the Chubby’s performance on Friday, October 10th at 8:00pm. Mohegan Sun executives and Tribal leaders will be on-hand to say a few words in Chubby Checker’s honor and to induct him into the Wolf Den Hall of Fame!
Chubby Checker is the only artist to have a song be #1 twice with the huge smash, “The Twist,” which shattered the charts in 1960. The next few years were prolific for Chubby as hit after hit followed. In, 1961, Chubby recorded “Pony Time,” written by Don Covay and John Berry. It went to #1 and stayed on the charts for 16 weeks. The platinum-selling artist never slowed down over the years with 9 double-sided hits and continually touring. In his own words as to what keeps him going? Chubby says, “It’s the fans. The energy I get from singing and dancing with all these people over the years is unlike anything else I experience. I never want it to end.”
