The Fab Faux brings together the talents of five of New York's most respected musicians: Will Lee of Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Vivino, band leader and guitarist for Conan, Rich Pagano, who has performed with Rosanne Cash, Ray Davies and released a solo effort Blurt Magazine described as “one of the best albums of 2009,” Jack Petruzzelli, who has toured and recorded with Joan Osborne, Patti Smith and Rufus Wainwright, and Frank Agnello, whose musical credits include Phoebe Snow, Marshall Crenshaw and Joey Molland of Badfinger.
Watch this extraordinary live, in-studio performance of The Fab Faux recreating ‘Abbey Road’, side two:
ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE named the band as #18 on a list of the “40 reasons to get excited about music.” Rolling Stone also praised: “sometimes a tribute band sounds better than the original.” In a live concert review, THE WASHINGTON POST’s John Kelly blogged that the band had tackled “the task of reverse engineering the Beatles' late catalogue, obsessively learning every guitar figure, every drum fill, every lush harmony, every tap of the cowbell and shake of the tambourine, until the songs could be played in concert.” THE HUFFINGTON POST raved: “They do the one thing, no amount of officially sanctioned Beatles merchandise can do... bring The Beatles music back to life.”
Best-selling Rock Critic and Sirius Radio Host Dave Marsh, said: "The Fab Faux have the hardest job in the history of R & R and they pull it off damn 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."
