Those of us who witnessed the Seven Up's at the Spotted Mallard a few weeks ago will attest to what a fabulous show they put on. They had the dancefloor jumping, and now they are back for a Sunday afternoon residency at Melbourne's coolest live music venue.
Described as: Deep Funk and BAD Afro! Blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street Funk, The Seven Ups are the original 8-piece party band. Expect unrestrained solos by unkempt horns over an unpretentious rhythm section whose only interest is laying it down!
The band are playing 2 sets from 4.30pm and will probably finish around 6.30. I am organising another meetup at the venue from 2-4pm, and some of those may stay on for the band as well. The kitchen also serves up good food if you are feeling peckish. Keep an eye on the comments section closer to the date for any further details.
A relaxed Sunday afternoon at the Spotted Mallard is a fabulous way to wind down the weekend, so come along, chill out, and perhaps even cut a rug on the dancefloor if you feel so inclined! See you all there :-)
