The Fab Faux
The Fab Faux with The Hogshead Horns & The Creme Tangerine Strings Perform Abbey Road and A Hard Day’s Night in Their Entireties
With a commitment to the accurate reproduction of The Beatles’ repertoire, The Fab Faux treat the seminal music with unwavering respect, and are known for their painstaking recreations of the songs (with emphasis on the later works never performed live by the Beatles). Far beyond a cover band, they play the music of The Beatles so impeccably that one must experience it to believe it. Imagine hearing complex material like “Strawberry Fields Forever” or “I Am the Walrus” performed in complete part-perfect renditions; or such harmony-driven songs as “Because”, “Nowhere Man”, and “Paperback Writer”, reproduced not only note- for-note, but with extra vocalists to achieve a double-tracked effect.
The musical virtuosity of The Fab Faux – in actuality, five of the hardest working musicians in NYC – completely up-ends the concept of a Beatles tribute band. Far beyond being extended sets of cover versions, their astounding shows are an inspired re-discovery of the Beatles’ musical magic, as The Fab Faux tackles the group’s most demanding material live onstage in a way that has to be experienced to be believed. In addition to their rotation for note-for-note accuracy, The Fab Faux is also famous for blurring the lines slightly and injecting their own musical personalities into the performances, thus furthering themselves from the plethora of cookie-cutter replication Beatles bands.
