On Wednesday 30th May, Alan met the Eppingham-based band Centre Excuse who were finalists in the ‘Rock the House’ competition at the Houses of Parliament.
Alan selected the pop-punk band, described on their Facebook page as a ‘hard-hitting trio creating a fresh sound’, to take part in the competition in Parliament. Jamie (19), Alex (17) and Teddy (17) went on to win a signed bass guitar courtesy of the band Blink 182.
Speaking after the event, front man Teddy Lewis offered a huge thanks to Alan and the judges who had given their support throughout the competition.
Summing up the mood at the gig, Alan said: ‘Centre Excuse’s success is proof that Rutland can rock!’
