THE SMALL FAKERS
28th May 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm£10
Today, The Small Fakers are established in the Premiership of tribute acts. They have built a terrific international reputation for themselves as the ONLY Small Faces tribute band in the WORLD, and have played to sell-out audiences in Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the Republic of Ireland, and all over the UK. They have played the Isle of Wight festival four times since forming, and in 2008, the day after headlining the festival with his fellow Sex Pistols, bass player Glen Matlock joined The Fakers onstage to perform what many people regard at the Small Faces’ ultimate track, their 1966 number one ‘All Or Nothing’.
The band have also performed with original Small Face Jimmy Winston, who claimed the Fakers were ‘much better live than the Small Faces were.’ and original drummer Kenney Jones – who also played with Rod Stewart and The Faces and The Who – when he joined the band for a rendition of ‘All or Nothing’ at Hurtwood Park Polo Club in 2012. He also praised the Small Fakers as being ‘Really great, absolutely spot on.’ Children, siblings and parents of the original band members have declared themselves Fakers fans too, with Ronnie Lane’s older brother Stan even claiming: ‘For those who never saw The Small Faces live, The Fakers are as close as you’re gonna get.’
