ABOUT

Blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street Funk, The Seven Ups are the original 7-piece party band out of Melbourne. Expect unrestrained solos by unkempt horns over an unpretentious rhythm section whose only interest is laying it down!

Career highlights for the band so far have included opening for Charles Bradley (USA), The Budos Band (USA), Babylon Circus (FRA) and The Bamboos (AUS), as well as a string of raucous residencies at Melbourne venues, two Australian east coast tours and festival spots at Sydney Road Street Party, Kyneton Music Festival, Bello Winter Festival, Come Together Festival and Folk, Rhythm & Life Festival.

In February 2015, The Seven Ups released their debut, self-titled album on limited edition yellow vinyl. The album was premiered on Wax Poetics (USA), feature album on PBS fm, album of the week in Beat magazine, top 10 on KEXP (USA) and continues to receive airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 6, KEXP (USA), Triple J, and community radio around the country.
