WHO ARE THEY: Formed in 1989 by producers David Cole and Rober Civilles, C+C Music Factory is a hip hop dance group which achieved huge success with their debut album “Gonna Make You Sweat” in 1990 which featured rapper Freedom Williams. The single “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” topped the charts and has endured over the years as a dance staple. The album also contained the hits “Things That Make You Go Hmmm,” “Here We Go (Let’s Rock & Roll)” and “Just a Touch of Love.” 1994’s “Anything Goes!” was a less successful affair, peaking at number 106 on the Billboard 200. Cole passed away in January of 1995. After a long hiatus, C+C Music Factory re-emerged in 2010 with Eric Kupper replacing Cole.
