A WESTON musician performed for a famous comedian during a private gig in town last week.
On June 30, Gavin Cox, of The Orphans and Eastertown, held the closed session at Unwined in South Parade for Ralf Little and other cast and crew.
The comedian and co-stars are filming The Café for Sky One in town and Gavin did a solo set for them, joined for a couple of songs by fellow Weston musicians Alex and Adam Lipinski.
Gavin said: “I didn’t know I was playing for them until the landlady of Unwined rang and told me not to promote the gig as it was a private function for a film crew.
“I was a bit shocked when I walked in to see Dave and Anthony from the Royle Family having a drink at the bar.
“They seemed to enjoy the set and the beer and I was very surprised when I started playing Cry Me a River by Justin Timberlake and Ralph jumped up on stage and proceeded to sing it with me.
“It’s not really a song I thought he would know all the words to to be honest.
“I also remember him smiling and giving me a rude finger sign when I played Half A World Away, the theme tune to the Royle Family.
“I guess he feels he’s moved on since then.
“They were very nice, down to earth people.”
