Nocturnal Fever; Women of Sin
Lady Fox and Diddy Reyes are clearly very skilled, highly trained musicians who have worked well together for some time. Reyes plays with confidence, interspersed with charming, natural banter as he sets the scene for the era, however, Lady Fox is a true scene stealer. From the minute she walked out onto the stage, her incredible stage presence was evident. As soon as she opened her mouth to start singing, I was well and truly sold on this performance.
Lady Fox has a truly incredible singing voice. This is the type of vocalisation that not only reveals natural talent, but years and years of careful training and control. The voice is an instrument, and Lady Fox plays it with expert precision.
Despite the appeal of the musicianship itself, the sheer talent and chemistry of these two performers was not what made this show so memorable. The performers set the scene of every song with an introduction, creating a context for these classic works, and explaining their importance in a cultural sense. What struck me as so effective about this approach was the way Lady Fox channelled the essence of the original performers. Instead of just singing through recognisable jazz and blues numbers, she brought a character role to each song, representing the meaning and substance of their place in musical history.
At 5.30pm, the audience for this show was not as big as such an act deserved. However, looking around the room at the other audience members, I could see that every person in attendance for Nocturnal Fever; Women of Sin was absolutely mesmerised. There were moments during this performance that I found myself closing my eyes and absorbing the scene, finding it easy to drift away into the cultural memories that were being evoked.
Although their unfortunately short season at the Adelaide Fringe has ended, this is an act that tours and performs regularly. I would encourage anyone to book a ticket if they happen to see these names pop up at any venue. This is truly a show not to be missed.

Arts About RPP fm
I was invited to RPPfm by John Baird and Sally Ballieu to promote my Harlem Soul shows. These were my first two shows at Speakeasy HQ and all proceeds went to my Charity "One Girl" for whom I have been an ambassador for since 2014. The most exciting part is, I raised enough money to send two girls to school.
