Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to groove as the Adelaide Fringe heats up with the return of the smash hit, ‘History of House’—an electrifying journey through the evolution of dance music featuring the dynamic blend of Australia’s renowned and Aria-nominated DJ Groove Terminator and the vibrant, three-time Grammy®-winners, South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir.

Set to ignite The Fantial in Gluttony over 17 shows, from Friday, 16th February to Sunday, the 17th of March, ‘History of House’ is bringing its pulsating energy back to South Australia following a national tour that captivated audiences from Darwin to the Gold Coast.

For 90 minutes, The Fantail will transform into a haven for music enthusiasts, complete with an expansive dancefloor and grandstand seating, ensuring everyone has the best view in the house.

With several new, top-shelf selections in the mix, Groove Terminator promises a set that will have you dancing non-stop.

‘From the ’70s, through the ’80s and ’90s, there are some tracks I know are going to absolutely go off on the dancefloor in Adelaide!’, beams Simon Lewicki, the man behind the Groove Terminator persona.

This show is a must-see for house music lovers, those who are always on the dancefloor, and anyone who wants to experience a captivating live performance that’s sure to have you breaking out a sweat! It’s a unique fusion of cultures and eras, creating a true celebration of music and dance.

Daniel Michael, Gluttony co-director, shares the excitement for the return of ‘History of House to Fringe.

‘We’re absolutely stoked to be able to bring History of House back to Gluttony and into that perfect evening slot of 8.20 pm. It’s become a much-loved show over its past two seasons’, says Daniel.

The show’s universal appeal is bolstered by its recent international collaboration, culminating in a new single ‘Good Life (Impilo Emnande)’, a euphoric mix of ’90s house with Zulu language, and recently been signed to Seeker Music for the world—owned by Evan Bogart, the son of the legendary Neil Bogart (Casablanca Records – the 1970s home of disco with acts like Donna Summer, Parliament, The Village People, Lipps Inc and more). 

‘History of House’ has also just finished a nine-day run at Perth’s Fringe World, receiving rave reviews and winning the Weekly Award for ‘Best Music Show‘ in the first week of the festival. And, whilst more performance dates are due to be announced soon, Lewicki also promises more music releases are on their way.

‘We are performing on the Grammys Global Spin, an online world music component of the Grammys’, says Lewicki. ‘Our new single, “Everybody’s Free”, is coming out on Friday, March 8. And we are signed to Black Coffee’s label for Africa. This collaboration has led to so many fantastic experiences so far… stay tuned for more announcements!’

Don’t miss out on this celebration of rhythm and soul at the Adelaide Fringe, with both evening performances and two 4 pm matinée shows available. As Kim Burley from Hi Fi Way reviewed, ‘Collabs don’t come more epic than this… Five brilliant stars for a truly remarkable performance.’ So, grab your friends, and get ready for a good time (and a boogie!) as you join the party that promises to be a highlight of this year’s Fringe.
