New Orleans musician Dr. John dies at 77

While driving home yesterday evening, I was saddened to hear the news that legendary musician, Dr. John had passed. His style and talent went unsurpassed, he was truly a great artist.
Prior to a concert I was scheduled to photograph, about 12-13 years ago, I had met him very briefly backstage. He had a genuine, good natured personality, with an immense amount of creativity and musical skill.
Rest in peace Dr. John.

The Fab Faux Concert

On Saturday night, my friend and I saw the Fab Faux at The Fillmore in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. This was our first time at that venue. My friend say them  seven times and I saw them three times.

What a magical evening. The set list consisted of The Beatles Greatest Hits, spanning the Beatles entire career of one of the worlds greatest of musicians.

Rarely has there been a band that could cover a groups likeness with such impeccable timing, pitch and skill. The Fab Faux could play each song almost as well as The Beatles themselves. The Fab Faux managed to engage the audience very well and the audience was completely captivated by the performance and sang along with the band for almost the entire set. At one point people could be seen dancing on the sides of the stage.

The fun and magic of the Fab Faux and The Beatles continues to survive and entertain audiences of all ages throughout the country.

For those interested in seeing The Fab Faux you can visit them at http://www.thefabfaux.com/. Remember to get your tickets very early, as The Fab Faux sells out to capacity crowds quickly.
