Adelaide Jazz Festival: Alexander Flood

Sat

27 April

8pm - 11pm

Adelaide Jazz Festival presents Alexander Flood at The Lab at ILA.

Alexander Flood is coming to The Lab as part of the Adelaide Jazz Festival, a weekend-long program of live performances presenting a broad range of jazz genres across central venues at affordable prices. Its aim is to surprise, inspire and delight audiences by discovering new musical experiences.

One of Australia’s commanding beat-masters, Alex possesses a finessed arsenal of groove, power, and expertise on the drums. Leading his band from the drum chair, Alex’s original music pushes a fresh rhythmic and dynamic realm of live dance music leaning on nu-jazz, deep-house, broken beat, DnB, UK Garage, and experimental sounds.

In 2020, Alex released his debut album Heartbeat (US label Stretch Music), followed by The Space Between in 2022. While touring Europe with 6x GRAMMY nominee Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah’s band, he recorded his third album Oscillate (Jakarta Records) in Berlin with an all-star line-up of Horatio Luna, Àbáse, and Paulo Cedraz, released in May 2023. He received the Robert Stigwood Fellowship and the prestigious Young Achiever Award at the Ruby Awards in 2023.

Alex is currently working on his fourth album, featuring Naarm/Melbourne-based flautist Erica Tucceri who was recently announced Melbourne International Jazz Festival’s 2024 Take Note Jazz Leader. Erica joins the line-up for this unmissable gig at The Lab, which will preview some of Alex’s new material. Pre-sale tickets purchased online are $25, tickets on the door are $30. Be quick – limited capacity, tickets will sell out fast.
