Book Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers


Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers is available to book for your special event – we work in direct association with Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers’s representative as a booking agent for them. Nile Gregory Rodgers is an American musician, composer, arranger, and guitarist, and is considered one of the most influential music producers in the history of popular music. Rodgers began his career as a session guitarist in New York, touring with the Sesame Street band in his teens, and then working in the house band at Harlem’s world famous Apollo Theater – playing behind Screaming Jay Hawkins, Maxine Brown, Aretha Franklin, Ben E. King, Betty Wright, Earl Lewis and the Channels, Parliament Funkadelic, and many other legendary R&B artists.

Chic was formed in 1977. Between gigs they recorded their first album with their then boss Luther Vandross. Luther provided the background vocals on the group’s early recordings. The band scored numerous top ten hits and helped propel Disco to new levels of popularity. CHIC’s chart-topping songs “Le Freak,” “I Want Your Love,” “Everybody Dance,” “Dance, Dance, Dance,” “My Forbidden Lover,” and “Good Times” have become Club/Pop/R&B standards. “Le Freak” is Atlantic Records’ only triple platinum selling single and “Good Times” shot to the #1 spot in spite of the Disco Sucks backlash in 1979.

The success of CHIC’s first singles led Atlantic to offer Rodgers and Edwards the opportunity to produce any act on its roster. They chose Sister Sledge, and the rest is history. The 1978 album, We Are Family, peaked at #3 and remained on the charts well into 1979. The first two singles, “He’s The Greatest Dancer” and the title cut “We Are Family” both reached #1 on the R&B chart, and #6 and #2, respectively on the Pop chart. “He’s The Greatest Dancer” was sampled in 1998 to create Will Smith’s “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It,” which was #1 Pop for three weeks. As The CHIC Organization’s tight sound became increasingly sought-after, Rodgers and Edwards began record production with numerous artists – sometimes together, sometimes apart.
