Top tribute bands will be appearing at the next Gliderdrome dance in a night billed to be ‘Back to the Sixties’.

The Small Fakers came into being seven years ago and are now the only Small Faces tribute band in the world and have played to sell-out audiences in Italy, Spain, Switzerland and all over the UK. They have played the Isle of Wight festival for four years running.

Children, siblings and parents of the original band members have declared themselves to be fans of the Fakers.

The original band was one of the most sensational British bands of the 60s before they split in 1969. Lead singer Steve Marriott went on to have international success in the 70s, and the other band members hooked up with Ronnie Wood – later to join the Rolling Stones – to have worldwide success as The Faces.

The Small Faces appeared at the Gliderdrome in January 1967.

The Beatles tribute band is The Fab4, a Nottingham based group held in high regard by die-hard Beatles fans.

They were the first band to be invited to play at the Paul McCartney Auditorium at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, an accolade of which they are justly proud.

In the past they have performed for the BBC’s Music Live celebrations at the Albert Hall and enjoy playing Liverpool’s annual Beatle Convention festival with gigs all around the city finishing with a return to the famous Cavern Club.

Tickets, for the dance on Thursday, July 25, are priced £10 are available from the Gliderdrome (at bingo sessions), the Chris Cook Print Shop in Main Ridge, and Burgess Thompson & Richardson in High Street. They will also be available at the door on the night priced £12.
