The Nutopians at Appel Farm
The Nutopians, an eight-piece ensemble honoring the artistry of the late John Lennon, will perform 8 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at Appel Farm Arts & Music Center.
Formerly The John Lennon Song Project, the band recently won an Independent Music Award for Best Tribute Album of 2010 for its "Imagined" album.
The Nutopians perform acclaimed renditions of many of Lennon's most beloved Beatles songs, often weaving melody, lyric and song together in a series of singles and mini-medleys. Selected songs from his solo years are also featured.
The band's new name was suggested recently by Yoko Ono to honor Lennon's social and political activism, and the couple's fictitious country of peace, "Nutopia."
Appel Farm Arts and Music Center is located at 457 Shirley Road in Elmer. Tickets are $27.50. Call 800-394-1211.
