40UP featuring Steve Clisby and Stephen Ferris
MONDAY 24th APRIL
ANZAC Day Eve
Legendary performers Steve Clisby and Stephen Ferris present 40UP, a sizzling new 70s, 80s and 90s dance party concept created exclusively for 40somethings.
“The whole idea is that you can’t even get in unless you’re 40-plus” says Steve Clisby,”this is how you exercise your right to be over 40 and still party, without worrying about the millennials getting in the way.”
Featuring live music, DJ sets and vintage music videos, the duo will electrify their fans with a soul-funk revival of classic dance hits from artists like Barry White, Temptations, Michael Jackson, Chic, Sister Sledge, Kool and the Gang, Earth Wind & Fire, Prince and more.
“We want to get the 40-plus crowd out to party and have a little fun, it’s an alternative to a seated concert – this is more about the audience’s love affair with the dance floor. Get up, 40UP and dance ! Bring ID” Clisby said.
““There’s nothing quite like this in Australia that caters specifically for 40-somethings. It’s all about the original music, the dance era and the fun that surrounded that time, but given a fresh, contemporary feel. This makes being older cool.”
As an added twist, guests will have to prove their age before they can join the party. Anyone younger than 40 can only make it in if they’re accompanied by someone 40UP.
Steve Clisby and Stephen Ferris are true Australian music royalty. Clisby, in his five-decade musical career, has toured and performed around the US, Europe and Australia, and has opened for the likes of Chaka Khan, Kool & The Gang, Tina Turner and Santana. The adopted Aussie hit the charts – and Australian hearts – when he teamed up with judges Seal and Delta Goodrem on The Voice in 2013.
Stephen Ferris’s unique DJ-ing talents stem from four decades of spinning hits, beginning in San Francisco where he formed his lifelong passion for soul, be it fashioned in disco, funk, hip-hop, latin, house, jazz or pop. Ferris has built a cult following in the Sydney club and dance party scene and his DJ supports include Fatboy Slim, Scissor Sisters, Norman Jay and Grace Jones.
In the 40UP Classics show, the duo will fire up the party with live music from Clisby’s five-piece band, Ferris’s show-stopping DJ sets and a line-up of special guests. Each show will be uniquely themed and feature a non-stop backdrop of rare and vintage video footage from the 70s, 80s and 90s.
