Decades after the opening of one of the most celebrated discos in the world, SiriusXM reunites with members of the original team that worked behind the scenes at the club during its 1977-1981 heyday. They will re-create what will be billed as “One More Night” of the iconic ’70s nightlife glamour inside the famed Studio 54 at 254 West 54th Street.
The hand-picked collaborators who choreographed Studio’s nightly parties will create the Studio 54 experience for one more night. The team includes: Karin Bacon, Studio 54 entertainment producer; Scott Bromley, Studio 54 architect; Marc Benecke, Studio 54 doorman; Myra Scheer, assistant to former Studio 54 co-owner Steve Rubell; Chuck Garelick, Studio 54’s former head of security; Scott Taylor, Studio 54’s former bartender and other insiders.
On hand to capture the club’s liberated atmosphere, original Studio 54 DJs Nicky Siano and Leroy Washington will play the iconic era’s dance classics. Celebrity guests, some from Steve Rubell’s master call list; and lucky SiriusXM listeners will be in attendance to flashback or dance for the first time in the internationally renowned club.
The evening will feature authentic, over the top details that helped define the Studio 54 experience, including the famed theatrics, backdrops, aerialist performers and dancers.
“There has been a great response to the launch of Studio 54 Radio and we want to continue that excitement with this special one-time event,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “We are working with many of the members of the original team that Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell so brilliantly assembled to create one more night.”
SiriusXM launched Studio 54 Radio, a 24/7 commercial-free channel devoted to the best classic dance and disco as a tribute to the music often played in the legendary club created by Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, on August 15, 2011. The channel features music that comes from the vaults and special record collections of insiders, much of which has never been heard since the club permanently closed its doors. Studio 54 Radio also includes The Marc and Myra Show, the weekly interview series featuring Studio 54 insiders sharing many never before told personal stories and anecdotes about the renowned club.
Studio 54 Radio, channel 15, will broadcast live from the “One More Night” event at Studio 54 on Tuesday, October 18.
Studio 54 is where Roundabout Theatre Company now produces classic musical and play revivals.
