John Lennon Imagined (Beatles & Solo Years) Award-Winning Ensemble Celebrates Music Icon’s Birthday at One Longfellow Square October 8th

When: Saturday, October 8th, 2011, 8 PM show
Where: One Longfellow Square, 181 State St, Portland, ME. 04101
Tickets: $30 www.onelongfellowsquare.com  (207) 761-1757  New York, NY – September 7 – Just in time to celebrate John Lennon’s 71st birthday, one of the most unique and compelling interpretations of the late music icon’s compositions comes from 7-piece ensemble The Nu-Utopians (formerly The John Lennon Song Project). The thoughtfully re-imagined tribute celebrates the genius and artistry of the icon’s music.

The 7-piece ensemble, created and led by Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step and Tom Dean of Devonsquare performs a live show featuring entertaining storytelling, and like their CD, superb lead singing and 3-part harmonies, plus a host of accomplished 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, as well as from his solo years, often weaving melody, lyric and song together in a series of singles and mini-medleys. These tunes are given surprisingly fresh treatments that often inspire a whole new appreciation for Lennon’s original lyric.

John Lennon re-imagined at TCAN Oct. 7

NATICK — John Lennon asked people to "Imagine" a better world in songs that still touch fans.Award-winning musicians Rex Fowler and Tom Dean will lead an eight-piece ensemble that "re-imagines" Lennon's best-loved songs Friday, Oct. 7, at The Center for Arts in Natick.Appearing two days before what would have been Lennon's 71st birthday, their group called Nu-Utopians will perform hits like "Across the Universe," "We Can Work It Out," "I Am the Walrus" and -- of course -- "Imagine.""We do this out of reverence for John Lennon. This is something I've wanted to do forever," said Fowler. "We're not trying to be the Beatles. Our mission is to play respectful acoustic versions of some of John's greatest hits for our audiences."The concert, "Imagined: Celebrating the Songs of John Lennon," starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are still available. Fowler, who previously performed at TCAN with Aztec-Two Step, the folk-rock duo he founded with Neal Shulman, said he expects the Nu-Utopians to play two sets of one hour each with an intermission. There will be no opening act. He formed the group with Dean, who sang and played for 30 years with Devonsquare, to "honor the majesty of John Lennon's music."In a telephone interview, Fowler said the group adapted its name from the imaginary country of "Nutopia" which Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono "founded" to promote world peace.

Gimme Some Truth: Artwork by John Lennon On Exhibit 10/7 -10/10/ 2011

In celebration of what would have been John Lennon’s 71st Birthday this coming Sunday, Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, in association with Bag One Arts will present Gimme Some Truth, a four-day exhibit of John’s original art work in a pop-up gallery space downtown.
On view will be nearly 100 limited edition drawings and song lyrics that John created from 1964 to 1980 – including a never-before seen piece titled On Cloud Nine. My guess is it’s going to be similar to the exhibit of John’s work that I saw in October of 2008. All artwork is for sale with proceeds benefiting City Meals-on-Wheels. A $2 donation at the door also goes to support the programs of this organization, which provides hot meals to homebound elderly New Yorkers. So, head down to Soho this weekend (remember, Monday is a holiday for most) to remember John, see some art and help feed some hungry people !
Gimme Some Truth: The Artwork of John Lennon is on Exhibit at 76 Wooster Street (Between Spring and Broome), Soho, New York City. Hours are as Follows:
Friday October 7th: 12 Noon – 9 PM
Saturday October 8th: 11 AM – 7 PM
Sunday October 9th: 11 AM – 6 PM (John’s birthday)
Monday October 10th: 11 AM – 6PM

John Lennon's Birthday: A Look at the Lennon Legacy [PHOTOS & VIDEOS]

John Lennon would have turned 71 on his birthday today, Oct. 9. Best known as one of the founders of the Beatles, he is recognized as one of the greatest musicians and songwriters of the 20th century.Beyond his music, however, Lennon has even eclipsed Paul McCartney, the most famous surviving Beatle, as an icon. A BBC poll in 2002 ranked Lennon number eight in a poll of the 100 Greatest Britons; McCartney and George Harrison were not even in the top twenty, and Ringo Starr was not on the list.

For His Birthday, A Celebration of John Lennon the Visual Artist. Was He Any Good ?

Why does John Lennon still hold such fascination, 31 years after he died and 71 years after he was born (Oct. 9)? A birthday exhibit titled “Gimme Some Truth,” in a gallery in New York’s SoHo, showcased his artwork and gave a glimpse into that special mentality that led to the founding of the world’s most successful band and the opening of so many social and cultural doors.

A Traditonal in our family

I did not know what to expect from tonight’s lineup. Essentially it was Plastic Ono Band and various sub-voltrons thereof. I was afraid the gig would be hermetic and insular. People playing for their friends. This could not have been further from the truth. This was an incredibly welcoming show. It was like the audience were in the Plastic Ono Band’s living room, and the members of the household were taking turns playing songs.
