Reminisced old times! Remember the songs that you groove with? "YMCA", "Go West", "In the Navy", "Milkshake", "I Am What I Am", and "Can't Stop the Music". These are just some of their biggest hits that shook the world and triggered a disco revolution. Village People is synonymous with dance music, that earned them the title "Kings of Disco" with record sales of more than 100 millions worldwide. Ten (10) Gold and Triple Platinum albums and 17 Chart Singles. Having the combination of talented choreography with outrageous fun, bumping and grinding, these six talented men continuously provide entertainment for all through their singing and dancing for 35 years already.
The group started out in 1977 with the discovery of Felipe dancing in his Native American costume, what began was the idea of putting together a group of men to represent various American social groups. The rest of the three and half decades were but successful worldwide concert tours, awards and recognitions, best-selling albums, top charts and significant influence even in motion pictures, televisions and sports. Their songs can be heard in many movies, they have performed several times on American TV shows and other programs worldwide. They are the half-time entertainment for Australia's Rugby Grand Finals seen by more people than Superbowl, among other sporting events worldwide.

In 2008, Village People were awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (between Liberace and Betty Grable at 6529 Holywood Blv)! It was a very special moment in their history.
"YMCA" is #2 MOST SING-ALONG-ABLE SONG IN HISTORY. Goldsmiths University has done the research and declares that YMCA is #2 in UK history as most sing-along-able. Who knew?
