About Nile Rodgers & CHIC
In 1976, guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards formed Chic while working as session players in New York City. Rounding out their act with the addition of two female singers, the band struck disco gold with 1978 sophomore album C'est Chic, topping the charts with iconic smash "Le Freak." A year later, the band released Risque, again reaching No. 1 with "Good Times," a defining moment of the disco era and one of the most sampled songs in music history. The group's success waned along with disco's popularity in the early '80s, but renewed interest in the genre has led to several reunions over the years, paving the way for the group's continued touring in 2014.
