MUSIC fans are in for a treat at the Royal Mail Hotel on New Year's Eve when Dallas Frasca and her band take the stage.

The band has been described by AAA Backstage as "the best Australian female-fronted act going around" while Frasca has been touted as "one of Australia's legitimate female rock stars" by Warp magazine.

The power and grunt of a Dallas Frasca performance has to be seen to be believed and the band will be stopping off at the Royal Mail for a vintage performance as part of an east coast 'Summer Assault' tour that includes the Woodford Folk Festival.

Fans have long known about the quality of a Dallas Frasca gig, but it was the release of the highly praised album Sound Painter that brought the band to a wider audience.

On its release the album rocketed into the top 20 of The Australian Blues and Roots charts and has remained there for the following three months.

The album received a strong endorsement from former Guns n Roses guitarist Slash when he tweeted about its "great vocals, riff and groove." Sound Painter also received four-star reviews across the music press including the Sydney Morning Herald.

Frasca's voice has been likened to that of Janis Joplin and the two singles, All My Love and One Man Woman, have been widely downloaded.

The gig at the Royal Mail Hotel in Goodna is free.

The Royal Mail Hotel is at 90 Brisbane Terrace, Goodna. See the website at royalmailgoodna.com for more listings.
