Fab Faux with the Hogshead Horns and Crème Tangerine Strings
April 25, 2015
Fine Arts Center Concert Hall
UMass Amherst Campus
Performing "Abbey Road" and more! The Fab Faux have been spoken of as "the greatest Beatles cover band – without the wigs," by Rolling Stone senior editor David Fricke, who wrote, "the Faux invigorate the artistry of even the Beatles' most intricate studio masterpieces with top chops and Beatlemaniac glee.” Approaching the songs with the intent of playing them live as accurately in musical reading and in spirit as possible, they will perform the Abbey Road album in its entirety, as well as other works. All five principals contribute vocals, making the Faux's soaring harmonies as resonant as their multi-instrumental chops that are further enhanced by the four-piece Hogshead Horns and the Creme Tangerine Strings. Join us as we celebrate the close of this season and offer a preview of the next season @ the FAC! Enjoy a pre-show dessert party on the plaza with free desserts, live entertainment and a cash bar. Tent opens at 6:30 p.m.
