A BRIGHOUSE band is set for a return to its home ground.

Sons of Mischief, formerly Far From The Dance whose members met at Rastrick High School, will be the leading act at a fund-raising event at Rastrick Bowling Club which is in celebration of 100 years of Macmillan Cancer Support on Saturday August 13.

Around 18 months ago the band announced they were calling it a day only a few months after the band announced they had signed a new management contract.

But seven months ago Sons of Mischief was born.

Singer Alec Townsend, bassist Jake Miller and drummer Thom Thornton set up the band late last year after their fourth member Adam Jogee decided that he didn’t want to continue.

The trio have already written a number of songs and have hit the road on a 14-gig tour.

Next month the band will return to the bowling club for a second year to support their good friend Jane Hills who is organising the fund-raising event.

Jake Miller from the band, said: “We raised a fantastic sum last year but let’s see if we can make it even bigger and better this year.”

Other highlights for the evening include comedian Guy Walker, Leo Brazil and His Twitch, Too Late - a 60’s and 70s rock band along with an auction featuring exciting donations from local businesses.

There is an optional fancy dress theme with a prize for the best dressed and a raffle.

Last year more than £1,100 was raised and a full stage of musicians were playing until the early hours.

The event which is free to enter starts at 8pm.
