The World’s Greatest Beatles Tribute Band

Posted in Uncategorized on March 8, 2009 by cleanbox

The only CleanBox keyboard has been broken for the past few months. Sorry to all the regulars who have been clamoring for content.

For those of you who missed the Fab Faux show on January 24 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, you’re in luck – we’re doing another one at the same venue on October 3.

To put it simply, this is an amazing show. Take five of the most versatile and talented professional musicians on the scene, have them play some of the last century’s most enduring popular music, and stage the whole thing in LA’s finest golden era downtown theatre – it is literally the best way I can think of to spend an evening. Call me biased, I am trying to sell tickets, but, I swear the band is so good I have no qualms being so cheesy.

They played complex psychedelic material like I am the Walrus, mainstream classics like Penny Lane (with a pitch perfect piccolo trumpet ending), beautiful deeper cuts like Mother Nature’s Son (with bassist Will Lee take a seat on the edge of the stage). Just thinking about it makes me bummed that the next one is 7 months away.

This time the band is going to do on of their popular theme shows for the first time on the West Coast: complete renditions of The Beatle’s last two albums, Abbey Road and Let it Be,

What else can I say?

Come out on October 3 for a one of a kind live music experience. The Fab Faux has already taken over New York (they sold out Radio City Music Hall last year). Their conquest of Los Angeles is next.
