Fab 6 is a fab-ulous Beatles tribute band 16 pieces strong that celebrates the arrangements of the quartet’s music from the deeper studio works of Sergeant Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, and The White Album and Abbey Road, highlighting the contributions of producer Sir George Martin. But worry not, there will still be plenty of “Help”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Twist and Shout”!
THRILL to the soaring notes of the piccolo trumpet solo in “Penny Lane”!
SWOON to the beautifully bittersweet string arrangement of “Yesterday”!
SHUDDER at the vocal and guitar madness of “Helter Skelter”!
TREMBLE at the musically chaotic finale of “A Day In the Life”!
Now Accepting Dates for Summer 2019
WHO WE ARE
(LENNON TRIBUTE, STRAY VOLTAGE)
Fab 6 is a labor of love. Six musicians united in a long journey to do it right. We are all hardcore lifelong Beatles fans. Most of us started playing in bands immediately after watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan in the Winter of '64.None of us have ever been involved in anything quite like this. We are all humbled by the Beatles music and are truly honored to get a chance to play it for you. It's a show I've wanted to pull together for a very long time-- and finally-- we're bringing it to life.

This wasn’t as easy as we all thought it would be. As Jerry has said, we all cut our teeth on this music, so naturally we thought we knew it inside out, piece o’cake. How wonderfully wrong we were! Many of the arrangements we all know and love were quite spontaneous, there is no written record of them, so we all have had to dive down every rabbit hole in sight to get it…right. A certain methodology on the part of those arrangements began to emerge, which helped a bit, but it was indeed a treasure hunt. We think we’ve discovered most of the precious metal, but the beauty of it is that there will always be that elusive…something.

When I was a kid, I saw The Beatles on Ed Sullivan, and that was it - I wanted to be Paul McCartney. I was already named Paul AND left-handed, so I figured it was an inevitability. I started with a tennis racket, then graduated to my first electric guitar and finally to bass. Somewhere along the line I found other influences (James Jamerson, John Paul Jones, Peter Cetera, and many others). But I always came home to The Beatles. When Fab 6 asked me to join the band, I thought - finally, I get to play all those fabulous McCartney bass lines. Not so fast. Turns out Rusty is amazingly intimate with them already. So when they said “guitar & vocals”, I knew I was in for a challenge. But having known Gary & Tilly since the 70s, and already playing with them and Jerry & Chad, I just couldn’t say no. And I am so glad I didn’t.
