The Fab Faux to Bring The Beatles to Life at The State Theatre, 2/23
The Faux's high energy shows have generated serious buzz not only at top NYC venues including sold out shows at Radio City Music Hall, The Beacon Theater, Hammerstein Ballroom, and Webster Hall - with Beatles fans, movie stars and world class musicians in attendance - but at major dates in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Park City, Utah (Sundance), Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and Toronto, among other locales. They've headlined 4 of the last 5 years at Liverpool's annual Beatle Week, playing before 35,000 Beatle fanatics - while in England, they had the rare honor of recording an original song at Abbey Road Studios - and also delighted the masses performing live on the Howard Stern Show and The Mark And Brian Show. Benefit and corporate dates have included events for JVC, the N.B.A. and the Michael J. Fox Parkinsons Research Foundation. TV appearances include Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
"It's not just a cover band," says the Faux's Pagano. "This is the greatest Pop music ever written, and we're such freaks for it...Vivino adds, "It's constant archaeology." Imagine the instrumental complexities of "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "A Day in the Life" performed part-perfect with an orchestra. The lush, multi-layered harmonies of "Because," and "Eleanor Rigby" sung note-for-note. The adrenaline rush of "Helter Skelter" and "Paperback Writer," delivered spot on... "Whenever anyone saw The Beatles perform it was just the four guys," Lee continues. "You never saw them on stage with a sitar or a string section. We have all that stuff."
