Dean Ford & The Beautiful Ones bring the Ultimate PRINCE Tribute Show to The Kate - Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center in Old Saybrook, CT on Friday, June 1st!

** 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 jaw-droppingly well. So well, you'll forget it's only a tribute.

It all started in 2012, 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.

The Beautiful Ones have performed at venues including: Port City Music Hall (Portland, ME), BAE (Bangor, ME), Down Under Club (Bangor, ME) The Cannery Music Hall (Southbridge, MA), Ralph's Rock Diner (Worcester, MA), The Dover Brickhouse (Dover, NH), River Jazz Cafe (Plains, PA), Funk 'n Waffles (Syracuse, NY), Vernon Downs Casino (Vernon, NY), Akwesasne Mohawk Casino (Hogansburg, NY), Haven Lounge (Orlando, FL), 1904 Music Hall (Jacksonville, FL), Calistoga Grill (Pointe-Claire, QC, Canada), and more.

Hear – and see – for yourself what it sounds like when Dean Ford’s doves cry.
