.

is a five piece band from Florida’s Space Coast that faithfully recreates the sound of those four famous young men from Liverpool, England. All five members are experienced musicians, and three of the band have a long history of playing in Beatles tribute bands. The drummer is English – so he gets a pass.
Whatever your background, your age, or your musical preferences – it’s difficult not to like the music of the Beatles – so come out and see Day Tripper and be prepared to sing and dance to all your favorite Beatle songs.

Music

has an extensive playlist of Beatles material. If you have a particular request or preference for your event – just let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your requirement.

Remember that this recording wasn’t done in a studio – it was taken from a recent show at Island Time Marina & Restaurant. This is how the band sounds live: there are no effects, no overdubs, no backing tracks. Just Day Tripper !!

Band Members

Steve Williams – Lead / Rhythm guitars & Vocals. Steve is a native Virginian and like many others, was inspired to learn to play guitar after seeing The Beatles on the Ed  Sullivan Show many years ago. His first Beatles Tribute, The Fabtones, was based in Austin,  Texas in 1992. After moving to Florida in 2009, Steve joined another Tribute called Across  the Universe, based in Hollywood, followed by another incarnation of The Fabtones in Naples  in 2016.
Steve formed Day Tripper in the fall of 2020. Their goal is to  reproduce The Beatles repertoire as accurately as possible and to transport you back to the  1960’s for an evening of incredible music.

Jeff Dalton – Bass Guitar & Vocals.
Much like Steve, Jeff has a long history of playing in Beatles tribute bands and bands that focus exclusively on music from the 60’s – he even got to play at Liverpool’s Cavern Club in 1995 ! Jeff was a past member of “Creme Tangerine” and “Octopus’s Garden” so teaming up with Day Tripper was an easy choice.
When he’s not doing his best to sound like Mr. McCartney – Jeff writes and records his own material You can find him at: (shameless plug) https://indigobeige.hearnow.com/

Rock Lynn – Keyboards & Vocals.
A resident of Florida since 1990, Rock has played with numerous local bands working to faithfully recreate many of the historic musical sounds of the 60’s and 70’s. Joining Day Tripper gives Rock the opportunity to explore the variety and depth of the Beatles catalogue and lets the band recreate such classics as Eleanor Rigby. Rock uses a Nord Electro keyboard which allows him to condense a full orchestra into a 22lb unit !

Rich WilliamsDrums & Vocals. Originally from London, Rich spent many years playing loud rock music on the UK pub-rock circuit (not much Beatles music was played). Day Tripper‘s more melodic and musical approach is a welcome change !!
“The best part of playing with Day Tripper is looking up from the kit and watching a sea of people singing, dancing and smiling….. “
Rich plays a DW / Roland V-Drum hybrid kit.

Matt Nylen – Lead / Rhythm guitars & Vocals. As Brevard County’s answer to Eric Clapton – Matt is one of the busiest guitar players in the County. When he’s not playing with Day Tripper you’ll likely see Matt playing with one of his other bands at various Space Coast venues.
Matt seems to have more guitars than anyone else we know, and as well as taking care of vocal duties on many of the John Lennon numbers, Matt does a nifty job of EC’s work on While My Guitar Gently Weeps !!
