It’s going to be a non-stop party at Kallang Theatre as funky disco band CHIC comes to Singapore for the first time on 3 December.
For all you young ones out there, before Nile Rodgers ever featured on Daft Punk’s 'Random Access Memories', he was part of new wave of funk music that swept over the world in the 70s.
The co-founder of CHIC, and hit-maker extraordinaire has produced seminal albums such as Madonna’s ‘Like A Virgin’, David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’, and Duran Duran’s ‘Notorious’.
The line-up for CHIC maybe ever-evolving, but the man at the helm, Rodgers, continues to make music that’s relevant today, collaborating with the likes of Disclosure, David Guetta and Avicii.
He also produced this familiar tune.
‘Get Lucky’ by Daft Punk
With three decades worth of music to choose from, the set list is bound to be chockfull of party starters. Expect covers of songs by Madonna, Diana Ross, Sister Sledge (among the A-list of musicians Rodgers has worked with) as well as a whole host of CHIC originals. Including this one:
‘Le Freak’ by CHIC
Get your funk on with CHIC.
