Nile Rodgers & CHIC’s Tiny Desk Concert

Oh, this is a good one: disco, funk, and hip-hop pioneers Nile Rodgers & CHIC play some of the most rousing and joyful music ever witnessed on the Tiny Desk Concert stage / corner of the NPR office. Here’s what they played:

“Le Freak”
“I’m Coming Out”
“We Are Family”
“Get Lucky”
“Good Times”
“Let’s Dance”

Name a better six-song set. I’ll wait. (Ok, maaaaybe this one.)

Saw them live a few years ago when they opened for EWF. They were excellent. Thanks!

Highly recommend Nile's autobiography - Le Freak!

Posted before I listened to the whole thing, such a great band, so good! The Soul Glo cameo!

Mark Van Cleve

yeah, I thought it was pretty clear that Nile's point here was that he wrote the song.

Whether arena stage or tiny desk, there is so much exuberance, so much unbridled, pure joy in Nile Rodgers. I saw him opening for Duran Duran a few years ago, and it was electric. Worth the price of admission alone.
