Retro Hits Tributes

Dim The Lights is an authentic tribute to the New York City / Philadelphia Disco phenomenon that took place during the mid-70’s and very early 80’s. Dim The Lights pays tribute to the pioneers of the disco genre, such as Chic, Donna Summer, Rufus & Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, Gloria Gaynor, Heatwave, Sister Sledge, Bee Gees, and others.

“Disco music is funk with a bow tie.”
Fred Wesley, Trombone for James Brown

“We wrote “Le Freak” because we were denied entry to Studio 54 on New Year’s Eve 1977–78. Grace Jones had invited us to see her show, and she assumed that since our hit “Dance Dance Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)” was so big we could get in. Normally we could, but it was sold out, she forgot to leave our names at the door, and [doorman] Marc Benecke wouldn’t let us in. He politely told us to “f#ck off”. So Bernard and I went and wrote a song called “F#ck Off”: “Awww … f#ck off … ” It sounded great, but I said we can’t have a song on the radio called “Aww … F#ck Off.” So I came up with “Freak Off,” but that wasn’t sexy. Then Bernard came up with “There’s that new dance everybody’s doing called the Freak.” Nile Rodgers, CHIC
