The Nutopians have announced a special show on what would have been John Lennon's 73rd birthday, where they will celebrate the late Beatle's "artistry and genius."
The group, founded by Aztec Two Step's Rex Fowler and Devonsquare's Tom Dean, is seven-piece ensemble which reinterprets Lennon's compositions, including his solo material and Beatles classics.
The special birthday performance will be taking place on October 9th at The Cutting Room in New York City and will include performances of material from the group's recently released sophomore album, "Lennon Re-Imagined."
The group has also announced additional shows that week following the birthday tribute. They will be performing at The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, CT on October 10th, The Suffolk Theater in Riverhead, NY on the 11th and Towne Crier Café in Beacon, NY on the 12th.
"There has never been a more honest or enlightened songwriter on planet earth than John Lennon," says Nutopians' co-founder Tom Dean. "Our goal, in some small way, is to continue shining a light on John's message of love, peace and hope with our interpretations of this amazing artist's music."
