"Small Faces Tribute "

 

Formed in 2007, the Small Fakers are the UK's only tribute to the sensational Small Faces.

Hits galore at every show including All Or Nothing, Itchycoo Park, Lazy Sunday and many more mixed in with B-sides and rare gems from the Small Faces' back catalogue. A visual and musical feast for all Small Faces fans.

The Small Faces split in 1969. Lead singer Steve Marriott – recognised as having one of the greatest ‘blue-eyed soul’ voices ever – went on to have huge international success in the 70s with Humble Pie. The rest of the band – Ronnie Lane on bass, Ian McLagan on keyboards and Kenney Jones on drums – hooked up with Ronnie Wood (later to join The Rolling Stones) and Rod Stewart and had massive worldwide success of their own as The Faces.

Interest in The Small Faces never went away though, and was re-ignited by Jam frontman Paul Weller’s fascination with them in the late 70s, and again in the 90s by Britpop bands like Blur, Oasis and Primal Scream name checking them in interviews as a massive influence. More recently, bands like The Arctic Monkeys and The Kaiser Chiefs have declared themselves to be huge fans too.
