Chris Montez (born Ezekiel Christopher Montanez on January 17, 1943) is an American singer,Montez grew up in Hawthorne, California, influenced by the Latino-flavoured music of his community and the success of Ritchie Valens. In 1962, he recorded the single "Let's Dance" on Monogram Records (written and produced by Jim Lee).[1] It went to No.4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US and to No.2 on the UK Singles Chart (spending four weeks there). The follow-up, "Some Kinda Fun", was a lesser hit in the U.S., but reached No.10 in the U.K. in January 1963. Nonetheless, both records sold over one million copies, and were awarded gold discs. Montez toured with Clyde McPhatter, Sam Cooke, The Platters, and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.The Beatles opened London, York and Northampton concerts for him while Montez was performing with Tommy Roe.
