The mirror ball has relocated to the cellar with Michael Musto'S 70s DISCO EXTRAVAGANZA at 54 BELOW. Sunday, February 17, starting at 9:30PM, join downtown legend, disco diva, and Village Voice columnist Michael Musto with his glittery sidekicks Snooky and Tish as he performs live with disco cover band The Elektrik Company. Michael's special guest star for the evening will be Orfeh (Legally Blonde, Saturday Night Fever). We are pushing tables and chairs aside to make way for the dance floor, so grab a cocktail and shake your groove thing into the wee hours as the 54 Below returns to its fabulous roots.
"I was at the original Studio 54 -- every night -- so it'll be refreshing for me to recreate the disco classics of my youth, this time for people who are only on prescription drugs," says Musto. "This won't be my professional debut, by the way. I fronted a cover band for five years and while I might not exactly keep the spirit of Donna Summer alive with my vocals, I do a mean Peaches and Herb."
All tickets are $20. For Banquet seating there is a $50 minimum per person required. To obtain those seats you must call 54 Below at 646-476-3551.
