September 13, 2011 at 3:51 PM (PT)
SIRIUSXM will bring together members of the original team that worked behind the scenes at STUDIO 54 during its 1977-1981 disco heyday to re-create what will be billed as "One More Night" inside the famed STUDIO 54 at 254 W. 54th Street in NEW YORK CITY. Studio 54 will reopen for the first time in more than 25 years, for one night only on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18th.
Among the collaborators who'll recreate STUDIO 54's nightly parties for one more night are entertainment producer KARIN BACON, club architect SCOTT BROMLEY, doorman MARC BENECKE, former head of security CHUCK GARELICk and barman SCOTT TAYLOR, among others.
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.
"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," SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN said. "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, on AUGUST 15th, 2011. STUDIO 54 Radio, channel 15, will broadcast live from the "One More Night" event that night.
