YOWSAH brings a show that consists the music of Nile Rodgers & CHIC. The man is responsible for a huge arsenal of absolute world hits. Think about Le Freak, Good Times, Like a Virgin and Get Lucky, just to name a few. YOWSAH is therefore not only a tribute to CHIC, but even more a tribute to Nile Rodgers!
Nile Rodgers started as half of the duo with Bernard Edwards with whom he founded the band CHIC. In the 70s they scored hit after hit. And not only with CHIC, soon they produced absolute world hits with Diana Ross and Sister Sledge. Later, illustrious names such as David Bowie, INXS, Madonna and Duran Duran were added. They all scored hits with Nile or Bernie behind the scenes. After the sudden death of Bernard Edwards in 1996, Nile Rodgers continued that tradition, including his contribution to Daft Punk’s number 1 hit Get Lucky.
Between 1997 and 2009 Yowsah played as Fun Party’s Dance Band and Yowzah! at many dance classics parties, company parties and city and village parties. We were known as ‘the only band with a dance guarantee’. And that reputation lives on!
From 2009 to 2018, we held a “short” sabbatical and gained new experiences in other bands, theater productions or as a session musician. We have been together again since October 2018. Now under the name YOWSAH, consisting of 7 enthusiastic musicians and with only one mission: the music of Nile Rodgers & CHIC in a dazzling and varied show with the sound of Nile. The result? One big dance party of recognition!
Apparently we can’t do without each other because we’ve been together again since October 2018! Now with only one goal: the music of Nile Rodgers and Chic. We get as close as possible to Nile Rodger’s experience, sound and presentation.
The result? A dance party of recognition!
