StarVista LIVE, the leader in nostalgia-based music cruise experiences, will be reliving the magic of the infamous Studio 54 and the glorious New York dance club scene it epitomized by adding the world renown “Hallelujah Disco” gospel choir spectacular and its mastermind, pioneering disco DJ Nicky Siano, to an already unprecedented superstar lineup for its newest uniquely themed voyage, the 2019 Ultimate Disco Cruise.
Nicky Siano and “Hallelujah Disco” combine to join a phenomenal gathering of pioneering musical artists who helped make dance music a lasting part of all of our lives: KC and The Sunshine Band, Kool & The Gang, The Spinners, Gloria Gaynor, the Village People, Tavares, Norma Jean Wright, Alfa Anderson & Luci Martin (formerly of Chic), Rose Royce, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Thelma Houston, The Trammps featuring Earl Young, Yvonne Elliman, Musique, France Joli, the Australian Bee Gees Show – a Tribute to The Bee Gees, and just added, the Boogie Wonder Band, Keith & Leslie Ferguson and comedian Kivi Rogers – with more coming! Together, they’ll “rock the boat” for five incredible nights, with live concerts anchoring a cruise that brings the cultural phenomenon of the 1970s from the dance floor to the high seas on a luxury ship that will wind its way through the Gulf of Mexico from February 14-19.
Disco was a social and cultural revolution, and Nicky Siano was there from the beginning as it all bubbled up from the New York underground in the early 1970s. In bringing his world-renown multi-media event “Hallelujah Disco” to the Ultimate Disco Cruise, Nicky tells the story of the NYC dance music scene from the Stonewall riots to Studio 54, where he was one of the primary DJs who provided the soundtrack to a litany of incendiary experiences, night after night. “Hallelujah Disco” features a six-person gospel choir singing danceable gospel songs, interwoven with the story as told through pictures, video and interviews with such notables as “Godfather of House” Frankie Knuckles and David Mancuso, the DJ legend behind The Loft. “Hallelujah Disco” is a celebration of New York City, The Seventies, and Gay Rights, written and directed by Nicky Siano, and produced by Siano with Rebecca Lynn. Learn the history of NYC Nightlife, while the Disco Gospel Classics are performed live. In addition to “Hallelujah Disco”, Siano will also be on hand to host special “Studio 54” inspired dance nights on the Ultimate Disco Cruise, too!
“Boogie Fever” is guaranteed to run rampant day and night from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West to Cozumel, and back, turning a luxury ship into one glorious “Disco Inferno.” Throughout the voyage, guests will also have the opportunity to attend special events to get up close and personal with the artists onboard, including live game shows, behind the music Q&A sessions, panel discussions, pool parties, and unforgettable themed costume gatherings.
