John Lennon Imagined: Beatles & Solo Years, performed by The Nutopians
John Lennon Imagined is a unique and compelling multigenerational show featuring The Nutopians. Founded by Rex Fowler (Aztec Two-Step) and Tom Dean & Alana MacDonald (Devonsquare), this eight-piece ensemble celebrates the genius and artistry of John Lennon with exquisite, frequently re-imagined song renditions from both his Beatles and solo years.Since its 2010 inception, the show has been gathering momentum and inspiring a whole new appreciation for Lennon's music with poignant song introductions, soaring lead vocals, and three-part harmonies. The Nutopians is touring with material from its Independent Music Award-winning debut CD "Imagined: Celebrating The Songs of John Lennon," as well as songs from its follow-up album of Lennon compositions to be released later this year.The band's name was given to them by Yoko Ono Lennon to both tribute ''Nutopia,'' the fictitious country of peace that she and John envisioned, and to honor her late husband’s social and political activism. In that vein, as new members of WhyHunger's Artists Against Hunger & Poverty program, the band will donate a portion of their proceeds from the performance and CD sales.http://www.thenutopians.com/When: Friday, April 13, 2012 at 8:00pm Where: Palace Theatre, 165 Main Street, Danbury CT 06810 Tickets: $30 advance; $35 at the door: http://www.thepalacedanbury.com/ or (203) 794-9944.
