Alex Van Roose
Songwriter, singer and band front man Alex Van Roose made a rare solo appearance at The Shed tonight. Singing some of his own songs and the odd cover for good measure, Alex’s set was delightful, demonstrating that we is one of the best songwriters in Leicester and a fine singer. His band, Midnight Wire, has a album which will be launched soon.
