Gino Soccio is a disco producer born in 1955 in Montreal. His only US Hot 100 entry was the #48 Dancer in 1979, but he did hit #1 on the US Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart twice ("Dancer" / "Dance To Dance" in 1979 and "Try It Out" / "Hold Tight" in 1981 - six weeks each).

He also assembled and produced the disco studio group Witch Queen, best known for their Top 10 Dance hit "Bang A Gong" / "All Right Now" in 1979. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gino_Soccio [Sept 2005]


Don't let the name fool you - although Gino's name and background are thoroughly Italian, he is a native born Canadian. As a behind the scenes musician and writer, he performed as Kebekelektrik, who scored with "Magic Fly" and "War Dance" in the mid 70s. Under his own name, he scored instant success with "Dancer" in 1979. "Try It Out" was a funkier effort in the early 80s.
