Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit spotlights an exclusive interview with Will Lee, a familiar face to millions as the lanky bass player of The Late Show with David Letterman lo these many years.


Red Bankers know Mr. Lee equally as well for his work as co-founder and co-frontman of  The Fab Faux, those wondrous WannaBeatles who have become frequent-flyer fixtures at the Count Basie Theatre. Lee and his fellow MockTops — including Jimmy Vivino of the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien — are gracing us once more with a fast return to the Shore and a rare open-air gig this Saturday on the SummerStage set-up of the Stone Pony.

The sought-after session ace (who’s also been visible Shoreside with some relatively low-key jazz gigs) reveals the secret origins of this wildly successful side project, shares some not-guilty pleasures with our readers and lets us know exactly why the Faux fivesome are the true real-deal channelers of Merseybeat magic.

All this, plus an eyeful of  Linda Chorney, one of the savviest songer/singwriters on the local scene, and a performer who’s kicking off a new series of “words2music” mini-concerts at Book It! Events in The Grove at Shrewsbury.
