Chic and Nile Rodgers Aus Tour Info

CHIC was & is disco’s greatest band; and, working in a heavily producer-dominated field, they were most definitely a band.  By the time CHIC appeared in the late ’70s, they bucked the trend by stripping disco’s sound down to its basic elements; their funky, stylish grooves had an organic sense of interplay that was missing from many of their overproduced competitors.  CHIC’s sound was anchored by the scratchy, James Brown-style rhythm guitar of Nile Rodgers and those indelible, widely imitated (sometimes outright stolen) bass lines; as producers, they used keyboard and string embellishments economically, which kept the emphasis on rhythm.  CHIC’s distinctive approach not only resulted in some of the finest dance singles of their time, but also helped create a template for urban funk, dance-pop, and even hip-hop in the post-disco era.  Not coincidentally, Nile wound up as one of the most successful producers of the ’80s.  CHIC has been nominated for inclusion in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame eight times — 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012 & 2013.
