My wife and I saw the Fab Faux last weekend. If you’re not familiar with them, the Fab Faux are a Beatles tribute band that have been around for about twenty years. (Their website is here. It’s done completely in Flash and is incredibly annoying.)
I can’t say enough about how talented and entertaining the band is. They sound very much like the Beatles, as you might expect, but they also have a deep love of the material and it shows in everything they do. Watching people do what they love, especially when they are exceptionally good at it, is always special.
The show was last Saturday, the same day Chuck Berry died, and they did a wonderful tribute to him for the encore.
But rather than write a full review I’ll say this: if you like the Beatles, go see them. They tend to sell out, so you may need to keep an eye out, or <em>shudder</em> give Ticketmaster your email address, but it’s worth it.
We saw them at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, which is in a nice neighborhood for going out to dinner and a show. We had a great time.
Enjoy this video of the Fab Faux doing my absolute favorite piece of Beatles music:
Have a great weekend,
