    Nutopians: Celebrating the Songs of John Lennon

     December 8th marks the 32nd anniversary of John Lennon's tragic death. Join us as we celebrate his music and life with The Nutopians, an elegant award-winning eight-piece ensemble that celebrates Lennon’s genius and artistry. Created and led by Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step and Tom Dean of Devonsquare, The Nutopians's name was given to them by Yoko Ono herself. The band gives remarkably fresh acoustic treatments to Lennon’s Beatles and solo song compositions that often inspire a whole new appreciation for the late icon’s music.

     

    The Nutopians’ awe-inspiring live show features poignant song narratives, and like their award winning CD “Imagined,” compelling lead singing and three-part harmonies. Known for their impeccable musicianship, the band members play an impressive array of instruments that include acoustic 6 & 12-string, electric and bass guitars, cello, violin, mandola, accordion, piano, chromatic harmonica, and light percussion. The band’s arrangements, in a series of single and mini-medleys, often weave melody and lyric in new and unexpected ways.

     

    “With these intelligent heartfelt renditions of Lennon’s best known songs, The Nutopians ranks right up there with the very best Lennon interpreters ever.” WFUV and Satellite Radio
