The South Side Show
Since launching early 2010 the ‘South Side Show’ has quickly become Melbourne’s undisputed weekly home of vaudeville, circus and cabaret.
On stage, dance floor or hanging from the ceiling, every Saturday night this lush art deco inspired venue comes to life with the crème of local and international guest performers alongside a rambunctious crowd comprised of circus kids, carney folk and vaudevillians.
With a reputation as a world class cocktail bar as well as one of the city’s most alternative club nights, the South Side Show parties till the wee hours each Saturday to the sounds of soul, funk, jazz, hiphop and cabaret show tunes served up DJs Mike Gurrieri, Knave Knixx & Edd Fisher.
Daniel started performing at a young age, competing for his local dance studio as an acrobat and contortionist in regional dance festivals. In 2003 he completed a Bachelor of Circus Arts from Australia’s National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA). While performing at corporate events Daniel was chosen by Cirque Du Soleil for the Las Vegas performance of “KA”. Returning to Australia in 2007 Daniel has maintained a high profile coaching at NICA. Dan has also traveled internationally with the international ballet theater performing in Latin America as a cultural exchange and fundraising effort for children living with HIV.
Malia trained at The Royal Academy of Dance before becoming one of the most sought after fire performers both in Australia and Internationally. Sheer commitment has seen her rise to dizzying heights as an acrobat coupled with her acerbic tongue, sharp with zest for the melodramatic, she is truly an exemplary performer.
Mike Gurrieri brings his swingin' genre-bending DJ antics to Red Bennies every Saturday night from midnight. Expect to go everywhere from swing, jazz, funk, soul, hip hop & everything else in-between. A true party set like no other!
The Knave is a one of a kind selector that brings you a freaky collection of boogie woogie, hip shakin', room-a-quakein' tunes!
This quirky, high octane DJ is King Pin selector of his style in homeland NZ and is making the dancefloors of Melbourne jump to his special fix of Swing Jazz, Nostalgia, Surf, Rock N Roll, Exotica, Funk and Cumbia Beat.
It's an infectious blend of nostalgic flavour that will have you swinging tree to tree though the musical jungle of groovy...
Imaan Hadchiti, Australia’s biggest smallest comedian presents the South Side Show.
Imaan has performed at Melbourne Comedy Circuit for just over 5 years, touring all around Australia and the UK. He boasts a different perspective for stand up comedy, being of a short-stature, he uses his point of difference to point out the absurdity of societies reactions to “midgets”. He also touches on topics of religion and the lack of common sense in the world with a nice blend of personal travel stories. A true character!!
