The Small Fakers - Shell Bay Restaurant 14 September 2008

The expensive yachts were parked up for the night. No more Sunseekers were going past and it was time for the Small Fakers to rock Shell Bay. Shell Bay? Unless you go the long way round, Shell Bay restaurant is accessed via the Sandbanks ferry from Poole. Drive through the multi-million pound houses and the chain ferry takes vehicles across the narrow entrance to Poole harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world. On the other side of the restaurant is Studland Beach although, fortunately, everyone kept their clothes on for the gig!

Shell Bay restaurant has an excellent local reputation for its seafood and the gig included a full and extremely good meal. The band played two set and managed to get the audience up and dancing from the start although songs that were particularly popular were Itchycoo Park, All or Nothing and, surprisingly, Rollin' Over.

"Good grub, great crowd with everyone dancing early. A friendly and fun venue so we hope to be back soon"

Matt, the Small Fakers
