In 1966, the Beatles stopped touring. Of course, they kept making records. Really great records. They just never performed them live.
The Fab Faux picks up where the Beatles left off as live performers. The Beatles tribute–heralded as the best in the world by everyone from Rolling Stone to Paul McCartney–performs the Beatles’ latter records as faithfully to the recordings as possible. They leave the wigs at home.
The group is led by Jimmy Vivino of Conan O’Brien’s band and Will Lee of David Letterman’s. Lee is a Grammy winner and has performed with three of the Beatles. The Fab Faux is five piece–a necessity for performing the Beatles’ complex masterpieces–and brings a horn section and a string section to round it out.
It’s been a year and a half since the Fab Faux’s last visit to south Florida. In that time, their live appearances have only generated more buzz. In Los Angeles last year, Gary Oldman made a surprise appearance and introduced the band, while Bill Mayer, Bill Bob Thornton, Jeff Bridges and many more famous Beatles lovers looked on.
At their Parker Playhouse concert, the Fab Faux will perform Magical Mystery Tour in its entirety, followed by a second set of selections from other albums. The Fab Faux is the one band any Beatles fan must see. http://www.thefabfaux.com/
