Performing Artist, Educator
Alex Akers began volunteering at Camp Roc Star the first year it was established in 2009 and has been with the organization ever since. Alex has been playing music since the age of 13 and has been in a number of cover and original bands around the Rochester and Fredonia area. He has played from bars in rock groups to theatres with orchestras. Over the past several years, he has been writing music and has assisted in writing and recording three local records with his current band, The Bleechers. When he is not playing music, Alex is working in schools as he finishes up his graduate degree in education at the University of Rochester.
It just blows people away because on Monday, they come in all quiet and shy, and Friday they're doing guitar solos in front of 300 people!
