JOHN LENNON Re-IMAGINED by THE NUTOPIANS

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.
