Venue: 73, Brighouse
The revamped former Ritz Ballroom in Brighouse re-opens on December 9 when the brilliant Si Cranstoun and his band are on stage. Unfortunately the gig, by a performer likened to Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke and championed by Chris Evans, is already a sellout. But on December 22, nine-piece 70s and 80s-style boogie band Groovemental return to venue. Last time they played here they sold out too, but there are still tickets and a great chance to let your hair down pre Christmas.
