The Seven Ups

Blues on Broadbeach would like to welcome this young eclectic group. Blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street Funk, The Seven Ups are the original 7-piece party band out of the northern suburbs of Melbourne.

Expect unrestrained solos by unkempt horns over an unpretentious rhythm that’s “as tight as they need to be, and as loose as you want them to be” (DJ Miss Goldie, PBS fm). In mid-2021 the band released their fourth studio album, The Old World, via Northside Records. Inspired by the catastrophic year that was 2020, the bands’ latest offering journeys into the darker fringes of instrumental music, drifting from funk to spiritual jazz and through to psychedelic fuzz rock.

The band has appeared at festivals all around the world, as well as a string of raucous residencies at Melbourne venues, frequent Australian east coast tours.
