I was fortunate to be introduced to The Fab Faux, the brilliant Beatles tribute band, in the most perfect manner—on the radio. On the Howard Stern Show to be exact where they performed tracks from Sgt. Pepper ...flawlesssly.
And it's not just a performance of the classic Beatles music alone, it's a performance of the recordings, the musicianship and the personal nuances of the players, the vocal harmonies and the sound effects such as the menagerie of barnyard animal noises tagged onto the end of 'Good Morning, Good Morning" for example. It's all there. Performed live.
Tell you what - don't rely on my word. Check out the band doing the classic, side 2 medley on Abbey Road in its entirety and we'll meet you below when you're done.
Go ahead, I'll wait.
The Fab Faux will return to Washington, D.C. for the fourth year in a row, with a May 22nd concert at Lisner Auditorium. The May 22nd event will feature a ‘Glorious Hodgepodge’ of Beatles music, as The Fab Faux are joined by Creme Tangerine Strings and Hogshead Horns.
TVD's got a pair of tickets to offer one person in exchange for your cheeky note in the comments to this post. Keep it Beatles-centric and the one that moves us most will be attending Saturday night's show on us. Contest ends Friday (5/21) at noon and remember to leave us your contact email address!
