Beatles Tribute Band The Fab Faux Returning to the State Theatre, 3/14Beatles Tribute Band The Fab Faux Returning to the State Theatre, 3/14
by BWW News Desk - Feb 19, 2015

The most musically satisfying Beatles tribute band and State Theatre audience favorite returns performing Revolver in its entirety plus a mix of Beatles' favorites! With a commitment to the accurate reproduction of The Beatles' repertoire, The Fab Faux treat the seminal music with unwavering respect, and are known for their painstaking recreations of the songs (with emphasis on the later works never performed live by the Beatles). Far beyond a cover band, they play the music of The Beatles so impeccably that one must experience it to believe it. Imagine hearing complex material like 'Strawberry Fields Forever' or 'I Am the Walrus' performed in complete part-perfect renditions; or such harmony-driven songs as 'Because', 'Nowhere Man', and 'Paperback Writer', reproduced not only note- for-note, but with extra vocalists to achieve a double-tracked effect.
