The Fab Faux, a five-piece band dedicated to the amazing music of the Beatles, will hit the AMT stage on June 1. According to their website, The Fab Faux, featuring the Crème Tangerine Strings and the Hogshead Horns, will perform a “glorious hodgepodge with a musical trip spanning the career of the Beatles!”
We’d like to share a few interesting excerpts from The Fab Faux’s website page entitled “The Faux Story” —
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.
Calling them, “the greatest Beatles cover band — without the wigs,” Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke wrote, “the Faux invigorate the artistry of even the Beatles’ most intricate studio masterpieces with top chops and Beatlemaniac glee.”
Approaching the songs with the intent of playing them live as accurately in musical reading and in spirit as possible, The Faux’s breathtaking performances tend to dispel all concert goers’ previous notions of a Beatles tribute act.
“The Fab Faux have the hardest job in the history of R&R and they pull it off well. All rock bands want to be like the Beatles; these guys have the nerve to BE the Beatles. Amazingly, they’re so good at it you learn new things about the originals.” — Dave Marsh, legendary Rock Critic and Sirius Radio Host
