Dean Ford and the Beautiful Ones
Dean Ford and the Beautiful Ones
Dressed 2 the 9's, Dean Ford embodies PRINCE with every fiber of his being, giving you a show as close as you will ever get to the real thing. Ford and company perform all the hits you know and love, including the “Purple Rain” album in its entirety. But, it's more than just the songs. He's got the look, the moves, and the sounds down jaw­droppingly well. So well, you'll forget it's only a tribute.It all started in 2012, whenDean 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" has been held annually at Port City Music Hall every Halloween for 5 years. Though, due to increased demand, has since moved up to the historic, 1,800 capacity, State Theatre.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.The Beautiful Ones have performed at venues including:Haven Lounge (Orlando, FL),1904 Music Hall (Jacksonville, FL),Jupiter Hall (Albany, NY), Funk 'n Waffles (Syracuse, NY), Akwesasne Mohawk Casino (Hogansburg, NY), Vernon Downs Casino (Vernon, NY), Ives Concert Park (Danbury, CT),The Kate (Old Saybrook, CT), Joey C's (Stratford, CT),Mauch Chunk Opera House (Jim Thorpe, PA) River Jazz Cafe (Plains, PA), Hog’s Hollow Saloon (Berwick, PA),Port City Music Hall (Portland, ME), BAE (Bangor, ME), Down Under Club (Bangor, ME),The Tropicana(Evansville, IN),The Cannery Music Hall (Southbridge, MA), Ralph's Rock Diner (Worcester, MA), The Dover Brickhouse (Dover, NH),Courthouse Center for the Arts (West Kingston, RI) Maple Tree Place (Williston, VT), Calistoga Grill (Pointe­Claire, QC, Canada), and more
