First time I've seen them and I won't miss them again. Not exactly a Beatles cover band because they do the songs the Beatles never played live. They're a bunch of talented musicians themselves (Will Lee, Jimmy Vivino etc - see TheFabFaux.com) and have some great material to work with. The result is pretty staggering.

The recording quality is fine, but I screwed up a bit on the second set (Sgt Pepper album). For some unknown reason, the batteries were just about dead about two minutes into the set. So, I blew Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds somewhat and changed batteries at the beginning. Then I had some volume problems. Still, it's ok. Then there was a dropout around 2:05 into Getting Better All The Time, and one just after Within You Without You, just where the Sitar player is mentioned. Very weird, I don't recall ever having the sound completely disappear for a second or two. I fixed it up a bit.

Anyway, great show.
