Music legend Nil Rodgers is giddy to talk about his roller disco event, which is really on a roll because Madonnais hosting its grand opening event.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee joined “TMZ Live” on Wednesday and told us about the funky vibe at his new roller skating palace just outside LA, dubbed the DiscOasis. Nile described it as a theatrical journey, uniting “art, light, disco, dance, live performance, roller skating and good times”.
So here is … experience has something for everyone, and it’s a beautiful outdoor setting in the southern coast botanical garden of Palos Verdes Estates.
Nile, co-founder of the emblematic group Elegant, will serve as “Groovemaster” … and he says that Madonna – with the music mogul Jimmy iovine and his wife, actress Liberty Ross – will host the shindig this evening.
You don’t rollerblade? No problem! Nile says the 10,000 square foot outdoor space also offers a dance floor.
Now, he wouldn’t say if Madge is going to don a pair of skates, but whoever does show up will also help Nile’s “We Are Family Foundation” … a charity he founded in 2001 to empower young people who are changing the world through innovation.
DiscoOasis will be open at least until Labor Day weekend … and Sunday shows include a “Sunset Series” – with legendary DJs.
