THE FAB FAUX

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.

The musical virtuosity of The Fab Faux – in actuality, five of the hardest working musicians in NYC –
completely up-ends the concept of a Beatles tribute band. Far beyond being extended sets of cover
versions, their astounding shows are an inspired re-discovery of the Beatles’ musical magic, as The Fab
Faux tackles the group’s most demanding material live onstage in a way that has to be experienced to be
believed.

Calling them, “the greatest Beatles cover band – without the wigs,” Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke
wrote, “the Faux invigorate the artistry of even the Beatles’ most intricate studio masterpieces with top
chops and Beatlemaniac glee…” Approaching the songs with the intent of playing them live as accurately in
musical reading and in spirit as possible, The Faux’s breathtaking performances tend to dispel all
concertgoers’ previous notions of a Beatles tribute act.
“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” – Dave Marsh, legendary Rock Critic and Sirius Radio Host.

The Fab Faux are a labor of love that was born in 1998 when Will Lee (who’s played with all 4 Beatles), bassist for
Paul Shaffer’s CBS Orchestra on the Late Show With David Letterman decided that he was determined to organize
the greatest Beatles band without any props (sans period wardrobe, fake accents, wigs) and focus on the intricacies
and soul of the music.
Rounding out the line-up are Jimmy Vivino, Music Director/Guitarist for ‘Conan’ and long time music partner of
Levon Helm, John Sebastian, Laura Nyro, lead-singing drummer/producer Rich Pagano (Rosanne Cash, Roger Waters, etc.),
guitarist, Frank Agnello (Marshall Crenshaw, Phoebe Snow, etc.) and multi-instrumentalist,
Jack Petruzzelli (Joan Osborne [producer, Love And Hate], Patti Smith, etc.). All five principals contribute vocals,
making the Faux’s soaring harmonies as resonant as their multi-instrumental chops, which are further enhanced on select shows
by the four-piece Hogshead Horns (with Blues Brothers, Blood, Sweat & Tears and SNL band alums) and
The Creme Tangerine Strings.

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 and The Beacon Theater in New York City – 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 5 of
Liverpool’s annual Beatle Festivals, 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 “Conan.”

“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,” “Tomorrow Never Knows” and “Paperback Writer,”
delivered spot on…Agnello adds, “Even more difficult than the later period material is recreating the exuberance
and energy of the early records, but we love to play it all.”
“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. When the show calls for it, we have all that stuff.”
