ROLL BACK THE YEARS PRESENTS
Sixties Mix was formed in 1986 at the Poplar pub in Altofts. There was a regular jam session at the pub on Saturday nights, organised by the pub landlord-Dave Stead-himself a former group member- where many clubland artistes came along. After the sessions stopped, four musicians decided to form Sixties Mix and carry on playing.
The original members of Sixties Mix were former Caldaires guitarist Terry Clark (lead guitar and vocals), former Strides vocalist Brian Thompson (lead vocal and rhythm guitar), former Ramblers bass player Dave Horne (bass guitar) and former Quo Vadis drummer Andy Green. The band are still performing. Bass player now is John (Biff) Burfield from The Collier Dixon Line and drummer has been John Wriglesworth for a number of years.
For the past dozen years or so the band has been resident at Altofts WMC, performing every fortnight on Saturday nights. They also perform at a number of other clubs mainly in the Castleford and Wakefield area.
As the bands name implies, the show combines sixties music with earlier fifties rock and roll. There is a gig guide on the bands website.
