The Sun Kings’ Drew Harrison presents an intimate acoustic celebration of the life & music of John Lennon with special guest Johnny Steele.

Singer-songwriter Drew Harrison is one of those rare recording artists with the ability to translate life into song. His passionate, honest, and intense style resonates in the vein of Bono, Richie Havens and John Lennon.

In the Spirit of Lennon is Drew’s emotional retrospective of the life and songs of John Lennon, and interpretation of his music.  He goes beyond just sounding like him, but captures the intensity that Lennon brought to the Beatles music as well as his own. Gifted with the most natural, effortless Lennon voice in the music world, Harrison has been performing John’s songs and telling the stories and anecdotes that go along with them for well over a decade.

He leads a very successful, critically acclaimed band, The Sun Kings, in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently performs over 100 shows a year both solo and with his band. Drew’s solo performances and his ‘In the Spirit of Lennon’ shows have yielded much praise.

As a solo artist he has performed in Europe, South America, and in the States he’s been invited to open for such artists as Richard Thompson, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Miller to name a few. Drew’s abilities as a multi talented performer have earned him fans throughout the world and his critically acclaimed solo release, Go it Alone, has enjoyed robust success.

Drew also leads The Plastic Fauxno Band, and 9-piece tribute to John Lennon’s solo work. The band’s concert, ‘Love Is the Answer – The Concert for John Lennon’ is a two and a half hour show presenting the concert John might have performed had he toured in 1982. It features songs from his entire solo career, respectfully performed by veteran musicians from bands like The Doobie Brothers, The Rubinoos, Todd Rundgren Band and more.

Somewhere among all of this Drew has found time for stage, TV, film, and completing a degree at UC Berkeley, adhering to a simple philosophy of living life fully, and giving back when one can.

JOHNNY STEELE: A Bay Area favorite, this witty and hilarious comedian is a former winner of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, and has been headlining clubs and theaters across the US, Canada, and overseas for nearly three decades.
