The Fab Faux with The Hogshead Horns, The Creme Tangerine Strings & The Nutopian Choir perform IMAGINE: THE MUSIC OF JOHN LENNON solo years and with The Beatles
With a commitment to the accurate reproduction of The Beatles’ repertoire, The Fab Faux treat the seminal music with unwavering respect, and are known for their painstaking recreations of the songs (with emphasis on the later works never performed live by the Beatles).
Far beyond a cover band, they play the music of The Beatles so impeccably that one must experience it to believe it. Imagine hearing complex material like “Strawberry Fields Forever” or “I Am the Walrus” performed in complete part-perfect renditions; or such harmony-driven songs as “Because”, “Nowhere Man”, and “Paperback Writer”, reproduced not only note-for-note, but with extra vocalists to achieve a double-tracked effect.
The Fab Faux has become an annual tradition for Beatles fans in the Ann Arbor-Detroit area. Beginning in 2011, the group has performed to near sellout crowds at the Michigan Theater every spring. So far they have performed Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, the White Album and Abbey Road (although not in that order) and some of them twice.
This year they are presenting something new (no pun intended) and performing an all-John Lennon show in honor of what would have been his 80th Birthday in 2020. They will perform a roughly 50-50 mix of Beatle John and Solo John material.
