“In the past, our Customer Appreciation Party has featured many rap legends like Naughty By Nature and hip hop groups like Digital Underground,” said Scott Davies of American DJ. “This year, we’ve gone to more of a dance music theme. DJs love to get people out on the dance floor, and no one has done this better than Crystal Waters. Combine her with songs like Tootsee Roll and Whoot There It Is, and you have a very high energy event.”
Waters burst upon the dance scene with her mega hit Gypsy Woman, which reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and number 2 on the UK Singles chart, eventually being ranked number 48 on the “Greatest Dance Songs Of All Time” by Slant magazine. The famous “la da dee… la dee da” refrain on Gypsy Woman has been sampled numerous times by artists from a variety of musical genres.
Other Waters hits include 100% Pure Love, which remained on the charts for 45 weeks, peaking at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100; My Time, which reached number one on the dance charts; Dancefloor, a 2008 hit; and Never Enough, which reached number 20 on the dance charts in 2009.
In addition to headliner Waters, the American DJ Customer Appreciation Party will include a joint performance by Thrill da Playa (lead rapper) and Mike-Mike, two of the members from 69 Boyz, and Daddy Black, part of the original duo that made up 95 South. The 69 Boyz dance hit Tootsee Roll reached number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and 95 South’s hit Whoot There It Is peaked at number 11.
“We have some incredible star power for this party,” said Brian Dowdle, marketing director for American DJ. “People who attend will see a lot of big hits performed on stage. We do this party as a way of showing our appreciation for our customers, so every year we try to make it a special event.”
