“Beatles Tribute Band” doesn’t really do justice to the performances of the Fab Faux. Unlike most other groups who attempt this, there are no wigs, no Black Oyster Pearl Ludwig drum kit, and no phony accents. The Faux sing in their own voices — straight-ahead interpretations of the lead vocals with perfect harmonies.
Except for Paul McCartney’s band, you have never heard (and never will hear) a group that can play the music of the Beatles like the Fab Faux can. Unless you heard The Beatles, and if you did — you didn’t hear them play most of these songs.
The Faux repertoire leans heavily towards the Beatles later material, recorded after they stopped touring in 1966. This period starts with Sgt. Pepper’s and ends with Abbey Road, and naturally contains their most ambitious works. Had the fans stopped screaming and the Beatles kept playing, I’m not sure even they could pull off the instrumental portion of this catalog as well as the Fab Faux.
Members include Will Lee from the Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Vivino, guitarist and bandleader for Conan, and Rich Pagano of Rich Pagano + the sugarCane cups.
