Celebrating the launch of Studio 54 Radio, Sirius XM will reopen the legendary club at its original location, for the first time in more than 25 years, for one night only on 10/18. Decades after the opening of the iconic disco, SiriusXM is reuniting 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. 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.
Studio 54 is currently is where Roundabout Theatre Company produces classic musical and play revivals.
On hand will be original Studio 54 DJs Nicky Siano and Leroy Washington will play the era’s dance classics. Celebrity guests, some from Steve Rubell’s master call list; and lucky SiriusXM listeners will be in attendance.
SiriusXM launched Studio 54 Radio on 8/15, featuring 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.
