Oh, That Magic Feeling

The idea of a tribute band is a bit strange on one level. Remember that shot-for-shot remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Pyscho? Definite head-scratcher. Of course, with music, you have countless people who have spent countless hours wearing out LPs, listening to the same songs in the same order, feeling the same anticipation for the first notes of that next song.
It's a rich vein for creating a communal experience at a live concert. And with the stubborn refusal on the part of the Beatles to tour, why not The Fab Faux? They're playing Day Two of the Rochester International Jazz Festival. Here they are pulling off side 2 of Abbey Road.
