Only later on, Ya Kid K was allowed to appear. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001. Originally, Bogaert used a model in order to promote the song. The group lost favor in the 1970s but various groupings of singers using the name of The Vogues continued to sing into the new century. Bogaert later on worked together with different vocalists. Also beginning in 1968, they had hits with recordings of three traditional pop music hits from the 1950s, "My Special Angel," "Till," and "No, Not Much". Together with Ya Kid K, he wrote the hit single Pump Up the Jam which meant the start of the Belgian hip hop scene. As their sound was not in step with the trend in rock & roll, their fortunes dwindled, but in 1968, now signed with Reprise Records, they had another hit, "Turn Around, Look at Me," which reached #7 on the Billboard Charts.
Technotronic is a Belgian Techno band formed by Jo Bogaert in the late eighties. Two more hits, "Magic Town" and "The Land Of Milk and Honey," did not reach the same heights but still made Billboard's Top 40 in 1966. Their first hit, "You're The One" (1965) rose to #4 on the Billboard charts and was followed by "Five O'Clock World" which reached the same #4 level. Originally, the group was called "The Val-Airs." After recording one song for Coral Records, "Laurie, My Love," they adopted the name "The Vogues." They soon signed a contract with the small Co & Ce Records label, run by Herb Cohen and Nick Cenci. They consisted of Bill Burkette (lead baritone), Don Miller (baritone), Hugh Geyer (first tenor) and Chuck Blasko (second tenor).
The Vogues were a singing quartet from Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania.
