Blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street funk, The Seven Ups are the original 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.

    In February 2015, The Seven Ups released their debut, self-titled album on limited edition yellow vinyl. The album has received great airplay both nationally and abroad.

    The Seven Ups will showcase at Max Watts on Thursday November 12 with Mojo Juju, Emma Donovan & the PutBacks and Quarter Street.
