Hey guys, 

Wanted to tell you about this incredible Beatles cover band called THE FAB FAUX. They are the closest Beatles sounding band I've ever come across; it's almost like a trip back to the 60's. They are gonna be playing in Washington D.C. on 5/22/2010 at Lisner Auditorium. Do check them out and support the music. 

Also do check this video out -  

Peace & Love

This is cool, I've been looking for a really good cover band for awhile, I saw 1964 in concert not too long ago and they were pretty fantastic, but I'd like to see one that plays everything!

Actually today I went to a Queen-Doors-Beatles tribute concert in my hometown. My sister got me the ticket as a "make-it-up" for not getting a ticket for the first Paul concert (I got my ticket anyway).

 

The concert was divided in 3 parts, and at the end, the band Morsa played, they're a Beatles tribute band. They were quite good, they played Ticket To Ride, A Hard Day's Night, I wanna hold your hand, I should have known.., Help! And I Love Her, Yesterday, Sgt. Pepper, With A Little Help From My Friends, Lucy in the Sky, Come Together, Don't Let me Down, Here Comes The Sun, Hey Jude, and the Abbey Road The End Medley.. and the encore was Twist And Shout.  Too bad they sang only a few songs, I wish they had played more songs.

And the interesting was that the theater was packed and everybody sang with the guys. Tons of teens. At the end, when they said "Would you stand up and dance with us?" everybody stood up and danced Twist And Shout.

Well now I know why they're called the Fab FAUX. When I see a tribute band, I expect to see a band that actually try to be like the original band, not just play their songs. Musically they copied the Beatles songs very well, but they didn't really sing like them, you can tell they're American.

Has anyone seen The Beatles Experience?  (To my knowledge, they're NOT the ones called "Rain: The Beatles Experience."  They're just "The Beatles Experience.")

 

I managed to see them in Cardiff on Friday night, and I swear it was one of the best gigs ever.  They're playing up a brilliant little market with their show.  It's a shame they don't tour outside Skegness very often.  I described it like this to my non-Beatle head mates: imagine for a moment that the one thing that reaches your soul in the purest, most complete sense is forever unattainable.  And you know it.  Always.  Now imagine that, for several hours, the limitations of reality were removed and there it was in front of you.  Yeah.  That was my night.

Heh, strongly suspect that original post was SPAM but it's far too late to worry about that now!

My dad took me to see a band doing Beatles covers way back in 1974 or 75 when I was about seven. Would've been my first concert - wish I'd been old enough to appreciate it properly. All I remember is that they did "She Loves You" and "Hard Day's Night", and made a spoken reference to the year 1964, which sounded strange to me since the earliest year I had any living memory of was 1971. Oh, and they wore goofy, utterly inappropriate turquoise jumpsuits!

I saw the 'Faux' about a year and a half ago and was very impressed.

In March, I am going to see 'Rain' at the Palace Theatre in Albany, NY with my wife along with my brother and his wife. I am very excited because from what I've read, they are a very tight act. Also, the Palace is the site of my very first concert (Cheap Trick) way back in the late 70's. Can't wait!

I loved the Fab Faux.

I forget how many are in the band, but I was struck by how many people it took to simulate 4 Beatles...

I'll be curious to see what you think of Rain. Just about everyone around me loved it - except for my Beatle fan friends. Kind of a familiarity-breeds-contempt situation. I've noticed that with Into the Sky... People least knowledgeable have been the most interested readers.

In the end, I never saw it. I probably should have just to be able to comment on it.

Very true... and it's five. Plus violinists, brass/wind players, etc.

Whats the 5th Rain called? Brian, George M, Pete, Tony, Stuart? Does he put down his instrument and run around a football pitch before leaving with a supermodel heading for the nearest pub??

Just reading up on the Fab Faux now - I generally have approximately zero interest in Beatles cover bands - and am kinda surprised to find that they're led by Will Lee, whom I remember from the old David Letterman show band. Also it's interesting that they have apparently no interest in looking like the Beatles (obviously, considering that there's five of them) and more interest in sounding like them, even to the point of utilising horns & string players. Nice to see.

'Rain' is just 4 guys. They go through the whole 'dress like the Beatles, act like the Beatles' thing and change 'costumes' to represent the different periods.

Egroeg Evoli  was referring to The Fab Faux when she said there were five guys. They don't care about looking/acting like the Beatles. They do a nice job of sounding like the Beatles. At least they did when I saw them. They sounded...well...Fab.

I might get to see these guys. I'd forgotten that Goldstar might have discount tickets, and sure enough, they do.
