John Otway and the Big Band Gig 5000 Tour
John Otway is an English singer-songwriter who has built a sizeable cult audience through extensive touring, a surreal sense of humour and a self-deprecating underdog persona.
Expect madcap mayhem and some scintillating stunts from a man old enough to know better…..and be surprised at just what a showman and musician really lies underneath the tomfoolery.
In 2016, Otway announced that he was planning to record a new album. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, he took his band to the Caribbean island of Montserrat to become the first international recording artist to record there since the Rolling Stones in 1989. The result was Montserrat – the first album of entirely new and original Otway material in over ten years.
“He’s a cabaret act masquerading as a rock act. He is gleeful, anecdotal, funny and life-enhancing.’” Canterbury Fayre Review.
“…this guy has survived more than four decades with a dedicated following because he is a poet and genius.” News Reporter, Sunderland Echo.
Special guest will be local singer-songwriter, Sam Nixon.
This is a standing gig.
