Mai Tai

Mai Tai

Disco, dance, female vocalists, pop, 80s

Dutch pop-act Mai Tai (named after a tropical cocktail) were formed in 1983 by the successful Dutch record producers Eric van Tijn and Jochem Fluitsma. With the three former backing-singers Jetty Wheels, Mildred Douglas and Caroline De Windt they created the most successful Dutch soul and disco pop-act in history so far, topping the charts in the States and the rest of the world. Their debut-single Keep On Dancin (1983) was a local hit in the clubs and by the summer of 1984 they reached the Dutch Top 40 with their second single What Goes On.
