Fans of the music of the classic trio of Paul Weller, Rick Buckler and Bruce Foxton are in for a treat when The Jam’d perform their tribute to The Jam at The Flowerpot in Derby on Friday, July 11.

The Jam’d have gained a reputation for being a top tribute to The Jam.

They are a hard working band, gigging up and down the UK, performing at Scooter Rallys, festivals, theatres and many others. Where ever they perform...they deliver!

The attention to detail is second to none and the band are totally committed to giving you an unforgettable night. The band’s main aim is for you to experience an authentic ‘Jam’ gig, with all the energy and passion of the original band, who enjoyed a long stream of chart hits between their 1977 debut In The City and their 1982 swansong Beat Surrender.

Then on Saturday, July 12, the King Street venue plays host to some more tribute fun, courtesy of The Small Fakers.

Ever found yourself wanting to go and see The Small Faces? Like it was The Marquee in ‘65? Check out this lot then.

Four geezers who transcend the genre of tribute band by delivering both the sound and the sartorial panache of the capital’s very own Fab Four.

This band is probably the closest that you’re going to get.

Singer Matt Bond has been described as “Steve Marriott reborn”.

The pedigree of the praise they have received is second to none, including support from Kenney Jones himself, Toby and Mollie Marriott, Ronnie Lane’s brother - Stan Lane, biographer John Hellier, and Val Weedon from The Small Faces Fan Club.

The band made up of Matt Bond on vocals and guitar, Jon Gray on Hammond organ and piano, Dan Taylor on drums and Neil Runalis on bass.

Doors open for both gigs at 8pm and admission is £10 for The Jam’d with their tribute to The Jam, and £10 to see The Small Fakers pay musical homage to The Small Faces.

Advance tickets are available from The Flowerpot and RAW Promotions, as well as online at www.rawpromo.co.uk
