The four members of 19-Twenty stand on a stage with a packed audience behind them. The crowed is cheering and excited.

The Seven Ups

Blending influences from 1970s underground Funk with Jazz, Fuzz and Psych Rock; 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 Seven Ups music has been featured in Wax Poetics (USA), album of the week (twice) on PBS fm and Beat magazine top 10 on KEXP (USA) and continues to receive airplay on BBC Radio, KEXP, Triple J, and community radio around the country.

The Seven Ups have appeared at festivals including Meredith Music Festival (VIC), Womadelaide (SA), Blues on Broadbeach (QLD), Riverboats (VIC) Queenscliff Music Festival (VIC), Strawberry Fields (NSW), Luminate Festival (NZ) Rainbow Serpent (VIC), Falls Festival (VIC), Bleach Festival (QLD), Global Beats (WA), White Night (VIC), Moomba (VIC), Subsonic (NSW), Bello Winter Festival (NSW), St Kilda Festival (VIC) and more.
