As a co-founder of CHIC, Nile Rodgers is an innovator who pioneered a musical language that sparked the advent of hip-hop with the smash hit single "Good Times." CHIC also generated groundbreaking pop hits like "Le Freak" and won eleven Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominations and most recently Rodgers was inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the Award for Musical Excellence.
Nile Rodgers later went on to produce career-defining albums for David Bowie (Let's Dance), Madonna (Like A Virgin), Diana Ross (diana), and Sister Sledge (We Are Family). These seminal productions, plus his work with artists like Duran Duran, INXS, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, Steve Winwood, Peter Gabriel, The B-52s, and Michael Jackson have sold over 300 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide. Nile Rodgers continues to be relevant today by forging innovative, trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Disclosure, and Sam Smith that reflect the cutting edge of contemporary music.

Glenn Miller Orchestra
coming toJune 20th
Glenn Miller and His Orchestra was a swing dance band formed by Glenn Miller in 1938. It was arranged around a clarinet and tenor saxophone playing melody, while three other saxophones played the harmony. This arrangement was different from usual and allowed Miller to develop his own style and sound, which made him and his orchestra one of the greatest and well-known of the swing era.
Through Miller's demand for professionalism at all times, perseverance, hard work, and musical genius, he created his own distinctive style, different from the regular swing bands of the time, which earned him 70 top ten singles and 22 number one records in just four short years - and launched the band to the uppermost heights of superstardom.
at theJune 7th
Radio Moscow is an American psychedelic rock band from Story City, Iowa. Formed in 2003, the band currently features singer-guitarist Parker Griggs, bassist Anthony Meier and drummer Paul Marrone. Signed to Alive Naturalsound Records, the trio has released five full-length albums as of June 2014.
Radio Moscow are often compared stylistically to blues rock bands from the 1960s and 1970s, particularly fellow power trios like Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Blue Cheer. Reviewing the band's self-titled album for music website AllMusic, Greg Prato described the group's sound as "a throwback to the classic rock of the '70s", comparing certain songs to artists such as Ram Jam, The Allman Brothers Band and The Jeff Beck Group. Following the release of Brain Cycles, Radio Moscow have also been cited as an example of the stoner rock genre.
