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 OpenTable.


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:


 
Steve Washington
Saturday, June 2

Steve Washington
Steve Washington's latest CD, "Right To Love," is winning over critics and drawing new fans both at home and overseas. Ron Forman of Cabaret Scenes sums it up best: "It was indeed a pleasure to hear the romantic and dramatic voice of Steve Washington. He is a jazz singer in the great tradition of Billy Eckstine, Johnny Hartman and Joe Williams."



DC Jazz Fest
 
Shacara Rogers
Saturday, June 9

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. Shacara received a Downbeat award for her performance at Howard, where she was a lead soloist with the renowned Afro Blue, and she was selected for the prestigious Betty Carter Jazz Ahead Program at the Kennedy Center.

 
Lena Seikaly
Saturday, June 16

Lena Seikaly
Lena Seikaly has established herself among the ranks of the city's most in-demand vocalists. She's been an artist in residence at Strathmore and a semi-finalist in the Thelonius Monk Competition. She's performed at the city's top venues, from Blues Alley to the Kennedy Center. The City Paper' Mike West calls her most recent CD "the work of a supremely confident master of her instrument."



 
Alison Crockett
Saturday, June 23

Alison Crockett
"Mix Nina Simone’s urgency, Betty Carter’s chops and Jill Scott’s sass, and you'll get the bold and bravura vocalist Alison Crockett," says the Philadelphia Weekly. D.C. audiences are quickly realizing that Alison’s shows are more than just music, they’re events not to be missed ‚Äď unpredictable, exciting and always entertaining.

 
Rochelle Rice
Saturday, June 30

Rochelle Rice
Rochelle Rice has been named Best Jazz Vocalist by the Washington City Paper and featured in residency at the Music Center at Strathmore. Rochelle has performed at some of the area's top venues (including the Kennedy Center, the Fillmore and the Hamilton), as well as the DC Jazz Festival and Capitol Bop's Jazz Loft series.
