The Nutopians is a unique and compelling 8-piece ensemble that celebrates the genius and artistry of John Lennon, one of the greatest songwriters of all time. Created and led by Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step and Tom Dean of Devonsquare, the ensemble gives remarkably fresh treatments to Lennon’s best and least known Beatles and solo songs that often inspire a whole new appreciation for John’s music. The band’s live show features entertaining storytelling, and like their CD Imagined, superb lead singing and 3-part harmonies, plus a host of talented musicians on acoustic, electric and bass guitars, cello, violin, mandolin, accordion, chromatic harmonica and light percussion. In a series of singles and mini-medleys, the band’s arrangements frequently involve weaving melody, lyric and song together in new and unexpected ways.
