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.

Tony Schillizi – Rhythm Guitar and Vocals. Originally from New Jersey – Tony, like Steve, has a long history of playing Beatles music. Tony has almost as many guitars as Steve but still manages to come to rehearsals without a capo. However, his ability to indicate to Rich when a song is about to end makes him an invaluable member of Day Tripper.

Jeff Dalton – Bass Guitar, Keyboards, and Vocals.
Much like Steve and Tony – 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)

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….. “
Depending on the venue / volume requirement – Rich plays either Roland V-Drums or a DW Acoustic kit.
