The Fab Faux's performances tackle the Beatles' material live onstage. They return to the State Theatre in Easton on Saturday, February 18th at 8 PM.
Featuring Will Lee, bassist from The Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Vivino, Music Director/guitarist/arranger for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, The Fab Faux approaches the songs with the intent of playing them as accurately as possible. They are committed to the reproduction of The Beatles' repertoire, and THE band to see if you want to know what it might have been like if the Beatles toured behind their later albums.
Tickets for The Fab Faux are $60 & $50 and can be purchased by visiting the State Theatre Box Office, 453 Northampton Street, Easton, by calling 1-800-999-STATE, 610-252-3132 or online at www.statetheatre.org.

About the band: "The Fab Faux are a labor of love that was born in 1998 when neighbors Jimmy Vivino, Music Director/Guitarist for The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien and long time music partner of Levon Helm, John Sebastian, Laura Nyro and Max Weinberg (to name a few), and Will Lee (who's played with all 4 Beatles), bassist for Paul Shaffer's CBS Orchestra on the Late Show With David Letterman kicked around the idea during an elevator ride in their NYC building. Rounding out the line-up are lead-singing drummer/producer Rich Pagano (Rosanne Cash, Patti Smith, Ray Davies, etc.), guitarist Frank Agnello (Marshall Crenshaw, Phoebe Snow, etc.) and ace keyboardist/guitarist Jack Petruzzelli (Rufus Wainwright, Patti Smith, Joan Osborne Band, etc.). All five principals contribute vocals, making the Faux's soaring harmonies as resonant as their multi-instrumental chops, which are further enhanced by the four-piece Hogshead Horns (with Blues Brothers, Blood, Sweat & Tears and SNL band alums) and Creme Tangerine Strings."
