Dance-pop troupe the Vengaboys were originally formed by DJs Danski and Delmundo. They performed live under the name between 1992 and 1996, additionally scoring a handful of underground club hits. During the summer of 1996 the duo was joined by singers and dancers all of whom became full-time members of the group.
With Danski and Delmundo locked in the studio, the four vocalists toured Europe under the Vengaboys name. Then in 1997 they released the single “Up and Down.”
The follow-up “We Like to Party! (The Vengabus)” appeared in 1998, followed shortly by the full-length The Party Album. This also featured the hit single “Boom Boom Boom Boom.”
The hit singles “Kiss When the Sun Don’t Shine,” “Shalala Lala,” and “Uncle John from Jamaica” all landed on the 2000 effort The Platinum Album.
After the release of their 2001 single “Forever as One,” a pregnant Denise left the group to tend to life as a new mother and the Vengaboys went on hiatus.
In 2006 they returned with Donny Latupeirissa replacing Roy on a tour across Europe. However in 2010 their comeback began in earnest with the release of their single “Rocket to Uranus.” The song’s accompanying 3-D video featured gossip columnist Perez Hilton, along with Euro-dance legend Pete Burns from the group Dead or Alive.
In 2013, they released a cover of “Hot Hot Hot,”. They released “2 Brazil” a year later to coincide with the 2014 World Cup, while the end of 2014 saw the group get in the holiday spirit with The Christmas Party Album, which featured the single “Where Did My Xmas Tree Go?”

Just a quick one to say how amazing everything went at our function thanks to Big Foot Events! From the very beginning they were extremely helpful and made sure everything was looked after without giving me too much hassle either! The Photo Booth, Candy Floss Cart and Popcorn Cart were all fantastic and a great hit with all of our family and friends and the staff running them were absolutely amazing! They were all set up and ready to go well before the event started and made sure they were always helpful! So a massive thank you to you all!

I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.

We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.
Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.
Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.
Barry Herridge – Ely Beet Sports & Social Club
The evening on Saturday was wonderful, Planet Abba we're superb and also so welcoming to the audience. As you know this is the 3rd year in a row I have used your agency and as always you have given me a wonderful evening, thank you.
