CHIC formed back in 1976 by renowned producer and song writer Nile Rogers. The band are 70's disco through and through, however because Nile is a song-writer fanatic, CHIC perform numerous songs which he has written too.
Back in 1976 Disco history and pop history was about to be written. Nile Rogers and bass player for CHIC Bernard Edwards put together a class act, a superb mix of girl and boy performers, to surpass the classical boy or girl band set up and thus created CHIC. CHIC went on to perform disco-dazzling tunes and number one hits throughout their career. There are literally too many to count but the three biggest have to be: "We are Family," "Le Freak," and of course "Good Times." However a personal favourite is "Upside Down" which everyone knows too.
That's the natural beauty of CHIC, it doesn't matter if you weren't born in the 70's, this disco band have influenced generation upon generation, meaning everyone knows their work. Their work is a better version of material from the likes of Erath, Wind and Fire.
And everyone knows Nile's work undoubtedly. He has worked with Madonna producing 'Like a Virgin' sending Madonna into world wide fame, and has also produced work for David Bowie and Duran Duran.
In 2014 CHIC were abducted into the rock n roll hall of fame, finally. That should have been done back in 1976. And it appears 2014 was the rebirth of CHIC as they headlined Bestival for the second consecutive year.
Long live Nile Rogers and CHIC.
