Returning to Washington 4/26, Following Last Year's Sold-Out Debut: The Fab Faux Tackles The Beatles' “Most Complex Studio Work Without Breaking a Sweat"

Recently Profiled On NPR's Morning Edition: “The Fab Faux is a Collective That's About Attention to Detail"

Band is “In the Midst of a Surprising Leap from Club Fringe to Center Stage..."



For those of us who never got to see The Beatles perform live, we're fortunate to have five of the best musicians around - The Fab Faux - dedicate themselves to faithfully recreating some of the most extraordinary music ever written.

The Fab Faux ride a wave of critical acclaim as they return to Washington, D.C. for an April 26th appearance at Warner Theatre, following last year's sold-out D.C. debut. Every Fab Faux concert is different, so fans are assured that a great new show awaits them. Tickets are already going fast, as the band readies a mixed bag of Beatles favorites for their enthusiastic D.C. audience.

Known for their spot-on recreations of the most demanding Beatles music, The Fab Faux have recently garnered the attention of some of the top media outlets in America. A recent segment on NPR's Morning Edition (url link below) praised the group as a “Collective that's about attention to detail." A Front Page article in The Hollywood Reporter noted: “After nearly 10 years together, (they) find themselves in the midst of a surprising leap from club fringe to center stage..." The New York Times said the band tackles The Beatles' “most complex studio work without breaking a sweat," and The NY Post praised The Fab Faux as being able to re- create the sounds of albums “few would dare play live."

From Associated Press to The New Yorker to Rolling Stone to NY Sun, critics have weighed in, and have described the band as nothing less than “Brilliant" (AP).

The upcoming Warner Theatre performance will give The Fab Faux the opportunity to remind Washington, D.C. fans why Rolling Stone Magazine Senior Editor David Fricke described them as “the greatest Beatles cover band..."

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
