The John Lennon Song Project 7-Piece Ensemble Pays Tribute to Music Icon One of the most unique and compelling interpretations of the late John Lennon’s compositions comes from The John Lennon Song Project, a 7-piece ensemble created and led by Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step and Tom Dean of Devonsquare. Together they have produced a thoughtfully re-imagined tribute that celebrates the genius and artistry of the icon’s music. Like their CD Imagined, the band’s live show features 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. Concert goers will be treated to exquisite renditions of Lennon’s legendary Beatles songs, often weaving melody, lyric and song together in a series of singles and mini-medleys. These tunes, of which several are rarely covered, are given surprisingly fresh treatments that often inspire a whole new meaning to Lennon’s original lyric. Selected songs from Lennon’s solo years are also featured. "One listen to these intelligent heartfelt covers will convince you that Rex and Tom have been infused with the spirit of John Lennon and that they rank right up there with the very best Lennon interpreters ever." - Pete Fornatale, WFUV, New York
