A Tribute to Chic and Nile Rodgers – LE FREAK

Party this Christmas with Le Freak – the UK’s best tribute to Chic and Nile Rodgers. Just check out all the superb hits that Nile Rodgers wrote / produced in his long career below. This is going to be the very best way to celebrate Christmas at Acapela – come along and here all the hits and kick off your Christmas in style! Le Freak feature a superb 8 piece band -2 singers, guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, sax and trumpet.

Nil Rodgers is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee. He received six Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement/Special Merit Award.  In 2023, Rolling Stone placed Rodgers 7th on a list of the 250 greatest guitarists of all time, writing: “There’s ‘influential,’ then there’s ‘massively influential’, then there’s Nile Rodgers… a true innovator who never slows down, still making history with his guitar.”

Chic released their self-titled debut album in 1977; it featured the hit singles “Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)” and “Everybody Dance”. The 1978 album C’est Chic included “I Want Your Love” and “Le Freak”, with the latter selling more than seven million singles worldwide. The song “Good Times” from the 1979 album Risqué was a number one single on the pop and soul charts, and became one of the most-sampled songs of all time, predominantly in hip-hop, starting with the Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight”.

Rodgers wrote and produced music for other artists, including the songs “He’s the Greatest Dancer” and “We Are Family” (for Sister Sledge) and “I’m Coming Out” and “Upside Down” (for Diana Ross). After Chic’s breakup in 1983, Rodgers produced albums and singles for other artists, including David Bowie’s Let’s Dance; “Original Sin” by INXS; Duran Duran’s “The Reflex” and “Notorious”; and Madonna’s Like a Virgin. He worked with artists including The B-52s, Jeff Beck, Daft Punk, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, The Vaughan Brothers, Bryan Ferry, Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga. He won three Grammy Awards in 2014 for his work on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories,  and two in 2023 for his work with Beyoncé on her album Renaissance.

Book a table for pre-concert dining

Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.

Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.

Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left.  Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.

If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.

Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if  this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue. 

  • All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
  • Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
  • Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
  • If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email info@acapela.co.uk

Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN  7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
