“Come Together” for an unforgettable evening with the acclaimed Beatles’ tribute band, known for its painstaking recreations of their iconic songs, and hear them perform one of the greatest albums of all time, Abbey Road, in its entirety!
The Fab Faux have been spoken of as "the greatest Beatles cover band — without the wigs," by Rolling Stone senior editor, David Fricke, who 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, including performing Abbey Road in its entirety, The Faux's breathtaking performances tend to dispel all concert-goers' 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.
