Eurodance group, though they described themselves as an international group with members from Brazil, Hungary, Trinidad and Tobago, the Netherlands, and Spain, that came to prominence in 1997. Some of their most successful singles include "Uncle John from Jamaica", "We're Going to Ibiza", "Boom Boom Boom Boom" and "We Like to Party". The V in their name is pronounced with a soft "B" sound, so that it is pronounced like "Bengaboys". A guest-singer from Spain, for the producer's previous project Nakatomi, kept repeatedly singing Venga in their songs, which means "come on" in Spanish. This led to the name Vengaboys as their following project.

Never critically acclaimed, the group continued making records that were distinctly Eurobeat (the music video of "Kiss" even features one of the dancers from ParaParaAllstars performing a Para Para dance), following in the footsteps of previous Dutch-Dance sensations 2 Unlimited. The ploy worked and by the beginning of the year 2000, the group had achieved four top 10 entries, including two number-one hits ("Boom Boom Boom Boom" and "We're Going to Ibiza"Wink. The group's success continued throughout the beginning of the 21st century, with the The Platinum Album (their third album release) going top 10, spawning three big hits ("Kiss", "Shala Lala" and "Uncle John From Jamaica"Wink and two lesser-known tracks ("Cheekah Bow-Bow (that computer song) which included their fifth cyber-member Cheekah, and the ballad "Forever As One," which gained more notoriety for its video, which was banned after the group used unlicensed pictures of them meeting pop group Westlife). By mid-2001, after nearly ten top 10 hits, the group partly disbanded and went back to working on the club scene.

Their American debut The Party Album peaked at #86 on the US Billboard 200 album sales chart. At the time, overall CD sales were at a highpoint in the USA, which played a role in the album going gold (500,000 units). This is significant as only a few European dance artists have attained similar success.
