Dance Troupe
    Formed in Germany
    1996 line-up:
    Marie-Anett Mey - front woman/lead vocals (June 3, 1971- )
    Smooth T (Toni Cottura) - backing vocals/rapper/dancer (June 7, 1971-)
    Steve (Stephan Browarezyk) - backing vocals/dancer (January 15, 1972- )
    Rod D (Rodney Hardison) - backing vocals/rapper/dancer (May 24, 1969- )
    Recorded 'Fun Factory Theme,' 'Groove Me,' 'Take Your Chance,' 'Pain,' 'Close To You,' 'I Wanna B With U,' 'Celebration,' 'Doh Wah Diddy,' 'Don't Go Away' and 'I Love You'
    Their name sounds like something McDonald's might call their playground.
    Their original female lead singer, Balja, quit the group after their first album.
    Mey thanked Balja on ensuing albums.
    Smooth T and Steve employed martial arts into their dance routines.
    Splitting in 1996, the group reformed as a trio in 1998 with no original members.
    They had an international composition. Mey is from France, Smooth T from Italy, Steve from Germany and Rod D the U.S.
    They had Top 40 hits in the U.S., but their international following was massive.
    They charted #1 songs in several European countries as well as Israel, Canada and the Far East.
    They never had a hang-up about the new trio, who quit after four years, using their 'Fun Factory' name for recording and marketing.
