but you can just call me Ray.
My life is full of great experiences, made better for sharing.
The regular crowd never tire of this great performer
Alex Frost is no ordinary singer. A couple of years ago after pursuing her professional psychology career she decided to turn up and sing at an "open mic night" at Prospect's Wassail Wine Bar to rekindle her earlier interest in singing. I believe she was looking for some relaxation from her stressful day job. I wasn't there, but I am told she brought the house down, and I heard all about it from my friends.
I regularly now pop in to hear Alex on a Friday night sing the Women of Jazz and the Blues, Etta James, Dusty Springfield, Sara Vaughan, you know the drill. My favourites are her rendition of Etta's "At Last" and her rendition of Adele's "Nobel Bob Dylan" hit, "Make You Feel My Love".
To conclude each evening's performance Alex always responds to the usual crowd's beckoning with her masterful rendition of Edith Piaf's No Regrets. Now you don't hear that done well every day in Adelaide.
It would be remiss not to mention the sympathetic, even brilliant accompanist, Ed Heddle on his red Nord Stage 88 piano. He can hold the show on his own with his improvisation, and perfect timing. The two together are amazing.
Dare I say the entry cost is free, and the $5 house wine is eminently good enough.
Due to time constraints, you have to hang out in North Adelaide and Prospect to hear Alex sing. I can assure you its worth the effort. Besides Wassail for her two weekly Friday night performance, you can also often catch her at the North Adelaide Hotel on Tynte St (formerly the Dan O'Connell).
Alex will be rounding out Wassail's 2016 season, on Friday 23rd December. It will be worth the trip; I suggest camping out early for a table.
