SINGER and songwriter John Otway went down a storm when he appeared at Market Lavington Music & Comedy Club on Saturday night.

Otway, who has been in the business for more than 40 years, wowed club goers. Organiser Ted Osborn said: "He treated us to an incredible, unique, brilliant and hilarious evening of entertainment.

"The night started when Melksham based band This Way Up, who very kindly stood in at 4 hours notice, after the original support act had to cancel due to illness, treated us to 45 minutes of fantastic party music.

"Then John Otway who is currently on a UK wide tour to celebrate both 40 years since his first hit Really Free, and his first new album in over 10 years, delighted us with his own brand of music with side splitting antidotes and antics aided by his trusty side kick Deadly.

"The audience of around 150 loved and lapped up very incredible moment which ended in a spontaneous standing ovation. John even spent a lot of time chatting to everyone signing photos and posing for selfies, ensuring a truly magnificent night was had by all."
