Prince fans from all over Maine will gather at Port City Music Hall this Thursday Night for a "Celebration of Prince."  The night, fittingly called "Sometimes It Snows in April" will feature performances of Prince’s music by Dean Ford & The Keepsakes w/ Special Guests.

Port City Music Hall

According to Port City Music Hall:

For five consecutive years, Dean Ford and his musician friends have put on a Prince tribute show on Halloween. Past shows have featured Prince and The Revolution’s own keyboardist Matt “Doctor” Fink. Lately, Ford has been sticking with his core band, The Keepsakes, featuring Renee Coolbrith, Evan Haines, Aaron LaChance, Joe Harding, and Jeff Chipman. Though he and the band have plenty of surprises up their frilled sleeves. Ford, as Prince, and company perform everything from “Purple Rain” to other material from the catalog of his royal badness between the years 1978 and 2004. He’s got the look, moves and sounds down jaw-droppingly well. Hear – and see – for yourself what it sounds like when Dean Ford’s doves cry.

This will be a great chance for all Maine Prince fans to come together to dance and remember the music of one of the greatest recording artists of all time. 100% of  tickets sales will be donated to the CITY OF HOPE charity

 

The tributes to Prince keep on coming...
