Dean Ford & The Beautiful Ones Offer Remembrance and Celebrate Prince at Putnam Place February 15
If you have regrets of missing seeing Prince on stage during his much too short life, Putnam Place is offering you the opportunity to still dance and celebrate Prince’s life on February 15. Dean Ford and the Beautiful Ones will be gracing the stage and recreating some of the artists’ original magic.
It all started in 2011, when Dean Ford and his musician friends put on their first of many sold out tributes to the Purple One in Portland, Maine. The show, lovingly entitled “Purple Brainz” is now held annually at the prestigious, Port City Music Hall. Past shows have featured Prince and The Revolution’s own keyboardist Matt “Doctor” Fink. Lately, Ford has been sticking with a rotation of his core band, The Beautiful Ones. Though, he and the band have plenty of surprises up their frilled sleeves.
Dressed to the nines and ready to celebrate Prince, Dean Ford and The Beautiful Ones will be as close as you can get, sadly, to seeing Prince’s music performed live on stage with the same energy and musicianship intended.
Doors open at 8:30, and music is scheduled to start at 9:30. Tickets are $20, with a $5 surcharge for those age 18-21. Tickets can be purchased at the venue, or here.
