Review: The Fab Four - The Ultimate Beatles Tribute at Kent State Tuscarawas PAC

It was much longer than 20 years ago today when the Beatles first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. And if you're like me, a lifelong Beatles fan who was born after the breakup, the closest you can come to experiencing them live is a fantastic tribute band. And that's what I saw at the Kent State Tuscarawas PAC September 15th.

The Fab Four - The Ultimate Tribute is the real deal. I've seen at least 50 different tribute bands for various artists, including at least 10 for the Beatles. I even work for a tribute band. But only a few tributes stand out as really nailing it. It's not easy to sound just like international superstars, and it's even harder to also look and talk like them. The Fab Four has clearly done its homework in all of the above. Aside from Rain, a Beatles Tribute with a Broadway residency, they are the best John, Paul, George, and Ringo I've seen.

The band played a 2-hour concert that began in the early days of the matching haircuts and suits, and then costumes were changed for the Sgt. Pepper portion of the show. Each "Beatle" then dressed like and performed a number from his counterpart's solo days. The cell phone flashlights (the PC version of lighters) in the audience came out for "John Lennon" as he played Imagine on the piano.

Most Beatles tributes do multiple sets with costume changes to reflect the band's distinctive eras. So that in itself wasn't so unique. But The Fab Four did two things that set them apart: First was the addition of an Ed Sullivan impersonator. He warmed up the crowd before the show began, helping everyone to shake off the cares of the workday. Then he presented the concert as if we were audience members in the Ed Sullivan Theater. He also filled time on stage during set and costume changes so there was no need for intermission. A brilliant performer, he nailed the utter awkwardness of Sullivan's demeanor. The second extraordinary feature of the show was that all musical parts were played live on stage by the band. Most tribute bands use sequenced backing tracks to recreate portions of music from the original recordings. Even "real" bands can't always perform certain songs live exactly as they were recorded in studio. U2, for example, has a keyboard player hidden under the stage for certain songs in concert. The Fab Four got creative with keyboards and found ways to play it all live. That solidified them as one of the top Beatles tributes for me.

The night was a celebration of the greatest rock n' roll band to ever cross the Atlantic. The audience was on its feet clapping, stomping, swaying, and singing along with the hits that took them back to another era.

The Fab Four is truly fabulous, and I do hope they will one day return to the PAC stage.
