My Year of Live Music!

March 24, 2012


Yesterday I had a meeting with the CEO of the Montreux Jazz Festival, Claude Nobs

Yesterday I had a meeting with the CEO of the Montreux Jazz Festival, Claude Nobs. It was to discuss what I was planning for the night of July 13th at his festival. I'm curating that night and I said I'd like to have the whole night at Stravinsky dedicated to dance music. Stravinsky is the biggest venue at Montreux and CHIC has played it every year we've played Montreux.

I plan for this to be our most exciting show in Stravinsky ever. The last time I performed there I also curated. I brought in Kid Rock, Stevie Nicks, Robert Plant, Steve Winwood, Paolo Nutini, Chaka Khan, and CHIC. I was the Music Director and CHIC was the band. The night was amazing for many reasons, but we don't play many live shows because I've always had other commitments.

This year CHIC will play more live gigs than we've ever played in any calendar year since Bernard Edwards and I founded The CHIC Organization. I will name my show's lineup after the Montreux Jazz Festival's formal press conference. This is My Year of Live Music!
