We joined our friends to see the Fab Faux show of a lifetime at The State Theater in New Brunswick on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 8 pm. The program was a rare combination of The Beatles- All Together and Solo Years. The Hogshead Horns and the Crème Tangerine Strings, along with Erin Hill and Jim Boggia provided the perfect accompaniment.
If the Beatles could see the energy, passion, excitement and love that the Fab Faux infuse their music with, we imagine they would enjoy the show as we did. See the setlist and know that each song lived up to the Faux high standard of, “just so.”
Bass Player Will Lee is a stand-out in the band for his performance, and his groovy moves to heighten the momentum. He is always impeccably dressed in a ‘60s flavored outfit. Most people know his face from his work on The David Letterman Show.
Favorite moments of the evening: “Nowhere Man,” “Please Please Me,” “What Is Life,” “I’m Looking Through,” “Jet,” and “Imagine.”
We left the theater feeling that the Faux still have got “IT.” That magic that makes us forget reality, smile, and step a little lighter.
Life can be beautiful, if you let it, as their friend and ours, Sid Bernstein would say.
See the Fab Faux if you can.
