You can party like it's 1999, right before Halloween!

Looking for something different to do on Halloween weekend? No one impersonates “His Royal Badness” quite like Dean Ford & The Beautiful Ones, and he is headed back home to Maine.

It is certainly no secret that I am a huge fan of the late, great, Prince, and Dean Ford has got it down. He looks, sings and moves just like The Purple One. They will play all of Prince's biggest hits of the '80s and '90s, like “Kiss”, “Let’s Go Crazy”, “Cream”, “1999”, and of course, “Purple Rain”. The other cool part is that he will re-create whatever look Prince had going on at the time these iconic songs were released.

I have had the pleasure of seeing this tribute band, three times, and it is a great night out, and the fact that it’s the weekend before Halloween weekend, makes it the perfect time to see some amazing music, and dress up!

The event is called "Hallowdean" and will make two stops in Maine:

  • Friday, October 28th, at the Criterion Theatre in Bar Harbor. Doors open at 7pm, plus there will be a costume contest with cash prizes.

Get tickets at the Criterion Theatre website

  • Saturday, October 29th, at Aura in Portland, Doors opne at 7pm, plus there will be a costume contest with cash prizes

Get tickets at the Aura website

Dress up and dance your life away, to the sounds of Dean Ford & The Beautiful Ones. The ultimate Prince tribute!
