(Vocals/Bass) – To say that Grammy Award-winning Will Lee has done it all in the music business would be quite an understatement. Perhaps best known as bassist for over two decades on The Late Show with David Letterman, Will has also lent his considerable talents to well over 1,000 Pop, Jazz and Rock albums (Ricky Martin, Burt Bacharach, Bee Gees, George Benson, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Luther Vandross, Mick Jagger, Cyndi Lauper, Barry Manilow, Miami Sound Machine, Buddy Rich, Bette Midler, Liza Minnelli, Diana Ross, Grover Washington Jr., Cat Stevens, Vanessa Williams, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Kool & the Gang, Billy Joel, Barbara Streisand, Carly Simon, D’Angelo, Frank Sinatra, Mariah Carey, Pat Metheny, and Steely Dan, to name a very few); has sung and played on an equal number of TV and radio commercials; and performed live with countless artists, including three Beatles! Founding and leading The Fab Faux reflects Will’s lifelong love and respect for The Beatles’ music; he says it best when he says, “They gave us all a wake up call.” Will’s website is: www.willlee.com

Jimmy Vivino is currently Music Director/guitarist/arranger for The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. That and The Fab Faux keep him pretty busy these days (with a little room for personal time). All that other stuff “played with this one or that…worked on this or that…produced this or that”.. Doesn’t matter. Only Present and Future count. You can find that stuff on my website if you care.
