Roachford rocks The Musician pub


By Olivia Mumby.

Legendary singer-songwriter Andrew Roachford rolled back the years to delight crowds at Leicester’s The Musician pub at the weekend.

Tickets were sold out in advance of the much-anticipated event, with the venue filled to capacity with 220 excited fans.

The London-based performer, known simply as Roachford, took to the stage at 10pm before launching into his early hits, ‘Cuddly Toy’ and ‘Family Man’.

His career-spanning set also included some of his more recent material, along with some well known covers such as, ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ by Bill Withers and, ‘Under The Bridge’ by Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Fans were not disappointed, with one describing the performance as ‘Fantastic’ whilst another stated ‘He sounds just as good live as he does in his tracks’.

One of the younger fans in attendance was local electrician Joe Smith, 18, who said: “I’ve really enjoyed tonight, I even managed to get a picture with him after he finished so that’s one to add to the collection.”

Located in Crafton Street West, The Musician pub is well known in Leicester for hosting live performances from a range of artists at least six times a week since it opened in 2000.
