Speakeasy Jazz nights at The Alex

Join us at The Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar, where we feature the region's top jazz artists every Saturday evening. This series sells out nearly every week, so make your reservations today at Resy.


THE VENUE

The Alex is an intimate cocktail lounge and restaurant with an eclectic dťcor and varied menu of American fare. Settle in to one of the overstuffed Empire sofas, sip hand crafted beverages from our craft cocktail menu, share appetizers or enjoy a three course dinner, all while experiencing the classic stylings of these incredible vocalists and musicians.


THE TALENT

This authentic craft cocktail cellar and speakeasy at the Graham Georgetown is the ideal venue to celebrate these exciting artists on Saturdays from 8pm to 11pm:


 
Akua Allrich
Saturday, February 2

Akua Allrich
Akua Allrich is a fresh new voice whose stage presence, vocal chops and joy in performing have gained noticed in DC and beyond. The City Paper's Mike West raves: "If you hear (as you often do) that contemporary jazz seems to be missing soul, it's because all of the soul of a generation has been concentrated into Akua Allrich." Frank Matzner of All About Jazz agrees: "Akua Allrich's music flows with a free, natural energy as engaging as her equally ingenuous personality."

 
Paige Wroble
Saturday, February 9

Paige Wroble
If you have not had the chance to experience the precision, power and improvisatory mastery of Paige Wroble, do not miss this rare small group appearance. A classically trained singer at home in several genres, Paige is currently the vocalist with the Airmen of Note, the premiere jazz ensemble of the U.S. Air Force.

 
Stephanie Nakasian
Saturday, February 16

Stephanie Nakasian
It's easy to to why www.allaboutjazz.com has hailed Stephanie Nakasian as the "the Renaissance woman of jazz." She has more than a dozen albums to her credit, including her recent "Billie Remembered," which was featured on NPR's "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross. She's performed across the globe, including performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the North Sea Jazz Festival and the Kennedy Center, and she's appeared with a who's-who of the jazz world, including Pat Metheny, Bobby McFerrin, Milt Hinton, Clark Terry, Scott Hamilton, Harry Allen, Sheila Jordan, Bob Dorough, Valery Ponomarev and (with Jon Hendricks) Philly Joe Jones, Roy Haynes, and Annie Ross.

 
Shacara Rogers
Saturday, February 23

Shacara Rogers
Howard University alum Shacara Rogers has been performing since the age of five. She captured first place in the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival Vocal Competition and was first runner-up in the 2014 Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Jazz Competition.
