Guitarist, producer and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Nile Rodgers is set to go on stage first. His trademarked guitar sound has been all over pop music since 1977. His band Chic, topped the charts with “Everybody Dance,” “Le Freak” and the often sampled “Good Times.” He played on Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out,” David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” and as recently as Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”
