On Monday, August 19, Nile Rodgers and Chic will be joined by special guests Adam Lambert, Chromeo, Russell Peters, Mystery Skull and Prince Paul at BNB Presents AFTEE’s Nile Rodgers Dance Party – East End, an evening of cross-generational dance music to benefit All For The East End (AFTEE). The evening starts with Prince Paul and finishes with a final very special surprise musical guest. In between, each of these amazing artists will create a one-of- a-kind dance party experience for 5,000 partygoers.
Rodgers predicts the AFTEE event will be the “greatest dance party the East End of Long Island has ever seen.”
“Dance music unites, dance music is happy, and the Nile Rodgers Dance Party will bring all ages to the dance floor,” says Rogers, the inaugural event’s producer.

Glamberts around the world are squeeing with excitement over Adam Lambert’s appearance next week at the “Nile Rodgers Dance Party – East End”, a show to raise funds for the charity All For The East End (AFTEE). Hopes run high that Adam will perform live with Nile and Electronic Dance Music’s current darling, Swedish DJ Avicii, on “Lay Me Down” (rumored to be the next single from Avicii’s new album). We are delighted to be joined on our show this week by Mary Morgan, Executive Director of AFTEE. We’ll learn all about the organizations’ mission, its connection to the legendary producer. And of course we’ll find out if she’s a Glambert! Send us your questions about the AFTEE show!
