  For those of us who never got to see The Beatles in concert, we're fortunate to have The Fab Faux dedicate themselves to faithfully recreating some of the most extraordinary music ever written – and they’ll return to The Egg in Albany, NY this Saturday, March 28th at 7:30pm – performing 'Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band' in its entirety with the Hogshead Horns and the Crème Tangerine Strings.

The musical virtuosity of The Fab Faux – in actuality five of the hardest working musicians in NYC – turns the concept of a Beatles tribute band on its head. Far beyond being extended sets of cover versions, their astounding shows are an inspired re-discovery of the Beatles’ musical magic, as The Fab Faux tackles the group’s most demanding material live onstage in a way that has to be experienced to be believed.

Will Lee joins us now. Will has played music with all 4 Beatles and is the bassist for Paul Shaffer’s CBS Orchestra on The Late Show With David Letterman.
