The Nu-Utopians Celebrating the Songs of John Lennon
The Nu-Utopians Celebrating the Songs of John Lennon The Nu-Utopians (formerly the John Lennon Song Project) is a unique and compelling 7-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 (nominated for Independent Music Awards Best Tribute Album in 2011), also features superb lead singing and 3-part harmonies, plus a host of accomplished musicians on acoustic, electric and bass guitars, cello, violin, mandola, 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.
