Mobile Beat Las Vegas 16 Announcement – DJ Casper – Cha Cha Slide

November 24, 2011 by Mobile Beat

The latest announcement from Mobile Beat about MBLV16 –……

DJ Casper (aka Mr. C) will be at MBLV16 – a seminar on creating and teaching line dances, plus a full DJ performance and the release of his new CD and tracks.

CASPER (B.K.A.) MR. C THE SLIDE MAN spawned a regional dance craze with his infamous “Cha-Cha Slide,” a recognized dance anthem such as the “Macarena” and “Electric Slide.” As a personal trainer at Bally’s, Casper developed a popular aerobic dance exercise based largely on his background as a Stepper (Nine time winner of the annual Chicago’s World’s Largest Stepper’s Contest).

Chicago radio station WGCI joined forces with Casper to record a song for his dance as well as promotions, advertising and the financing of an instructional dance. The Chicago-based M.O.B. label joined the party and released the “Cha-Cha Slide” album. After the song/dance became a major phenomenon in Chicago, Universal Records joined the ranks for national distribution. The “Cha Cha Slide” made it to the Billboard charts. Both Casper and the “Cha Cha Slide” have become synonymous with everything that has to do with Chicago.

He began his illustrious career at the tender age of six, performing at school dances. As he got older, he began impersonating musical and comedic artists as: James Brown, Teddy Pendergrass, Muddy Waters and Eddie Murphy. He also embarked upon a film career in the following movies: “Monkey Hustle” and “Love Jones” starring Nia Long & Larenz Tate. Casper was instrumental in creating videos for both Musiq Soulchild entitled “Just Friends” and Gerald Levert’s “Step On.” Casper is still a recognized household name within the music, dance and radio genres and looks forward to a lifelong career in these industries as well as challenging other avenues and opportunities. He spends every Second Sunday of the month at The Club on 76th and Cicero as either a Host or DJ. You can also check Casper out in the stage play “A Stepper’s Story” and every Saturday evening from 10:p to 2:a on V103 – 102.7 FM in Chicago.
