The Fab Faux to Return to the State Theatre on Saturday 3/11The Fab Faux to Return to the State Theatre on Saturday 3/11
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2017

The most musically satisfying Beatles tribute band and State Theatre audience favorite returns performing a hodgepodge of Beatles' hits! 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.  (more...)
