On hand to capture the club’s liberated atmosphere, 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.
The evening will feature authentic, over the top details that helped define the Studio 54 experience, including the famed theatrics, backdrops, aerialist performers and dancers.
