Vengaboys (NL)

Vengaboys are a eurodance band that came to prominence in 1997. They were formed by Dutch DJ's Danski (Dennis van den Driesschen) and Delmondo (Wessel van Diepen), who toured Spanish beach parties in a bus. They formed in 1992 and gained four dancers during 1995-96. Some of their most successful singles include "Uncle John from Jamaica", "We're Going to Ibiza", "Boom Boom Boom Boom" and "We Like to Party". Like in Spanish, the V is pronounced with a soft B sound, as such- "Bengaboys", which could be translated as "The 'Come on' Boys". A guest-singer from Spain, for the producer's previous project Nakatomi, kept repeatedly singing "¡Venga!" ("Come on!") in their songs. This led to the name 'Vengaboys' as their following project.

Katrina and the Waves (CA)

Katrina And The Waves were a successful, female-fronted, four piece rock band during the 1980s and 90s, built around the infectiously melodic, sixties-influenced songs of Kimberly Rew (former guitarist for The Soft Boys) and the distinctively powerful vocals of Katrina Leskanich. The group were best known for their evergreen, step-lightening 1985 hit single "Walking On Sunshine" and their landslide 1997 Eurovision Song Contest victory with the song "Love Shine A Light". The band’s earliest incarnation was as the Waves, a group that played in and around Cambridge, England from 1975-77 and featured guitarist Kimberley Rew and drummer Alex Cooper.

This line up of the Waves never issued any recordings, and broke up when Rew left t...

Limahl (UK)

Christopher Hamill (born December 19, 1958) in Pemberton, Wigan, Lancashire, England, United Kingdom, better known by his stage name Limahl, was the lead singer of the 1980s pop band Kajagoogoo and subsequently enjoyed a solo career.

He adopted his stage name (an anagram of his surname) at the time he was recruited by the existing members of Kajagoogoo. An advert was placed in a music magazine asking for a 'front man who could sing and look good'. Soon after he had joined, the group released their first single "Too Shy" which went to number one in the UK charts and the top five on the Billboard Hot 100.

However, Limahl never enjoyed good relationships with the rest of the band, and later in 1983, the others in the b...
