CHIC FEATURING NILE RODGERS
Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, Indio, CA July 15th
Among music legends, Nile Rodgers is truly exceptional. As the co-founder of CHIC and a multiple Grammy Award-winning producer, he is a cultural icon and a music innovator with more than 200 hit singles to his name and 300 albums sold. CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers will be bringing that musical prowess to the Special Events Center at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, July 15, 2017.
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.
Rodgers is currently recording It's About Time, the first new CHIC album in 25 years. "I'll Be There," the album's first single, went to #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart while the accompanying video generated nearly
three million views in less than a week. Since 2015, he's produced, performed, and hosted the annual FREAK OUT! LET'S DANCE! Festival in New York and London, an all-star concert series distinguished by an eclectic, genre-spanning set featuring performances by headliners like Beck, Bette Midler, Janelle Monáe, Keith Urban, and Pharrell Williams.

Bell Biv DeVoe
coming toJune 26th, 27th, 28th
Bell, Bivins, and DeVoe formed the group at the suggestion of producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. Upon accepting the idea, MCA records wrote down the name Bell Bivins & DeVoe, but Bivins suggested they remove the ins from his name and just call the group Bell Biv DeVoe. With help from Public Enemy producers Eric Sadler, Hank and Keith Shocklee, and several others, Bell Biv Devoe released its debut album Poison in 1990, on MCA Records. The album was credited as pioneering the "new jack swing" sound of the early 1990s, combining hip-hop, funk, soul, and pop music. This fusion of styles helped to expose them to a fan base who prefer a harder edge sound. Poison reached number 1 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and its title track, along with its second single, "Do Me!", both reached number 3
on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Shortly thereafter, Richard Wolf and Epic Mazur were responsible for the remix of "Do Me!" (which hit Number Six on the dance charts). Poison also spawned the singles "B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me)?", "When Will I See You Smile Again?" and "She's Dope!" Poison sold over four million copies, and was followed up by a remix album titled WBBD-Bootcity. Richard Wolf and Epic Mazur helped create BBD's premiere album, blending rhythm, blues, pop, and rock, and Poison achieve triple Platinum success.

TLC is an American girl group whose original line-up consisted of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas. Formed in Atlanta, Georgia in 1991, the group was very successful during the 1990s and early 2000s in spite of numerous spats with the law, each other, and the group's record label and management. They scored nine top-ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including four number-one singles "Creep", "Waterfalls", "No Scrubs", and "Unpretty". The group also recorded four multi-platinum albums, including CrazySexyCool (1994) which still remains the only album by a female group to receive a diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). TLC also became the first R&B group in history to receive Million certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) for FanMail (1999).
