DUNCAN FORD, 60TH BIRTHDAY
The Day Trippers played 2 solid hours at my 60th. The dance floor was always occupied. If you're after the genuine sound of 60s and 70s rock, Dylan, Stones, Beatles, Floyd, Van Morrison etc, this is your band. Immaculate musicianship and vocals.

I have booked The Day Trippers and their members for several events and their musicianship is brilliant, the crowds always love them and they are always a pleasure to deal with - Highly recommended!
