“A Salute To Glen Campbell” with former band leader, Jeff Dayton and former Glen Campbell Band members.
HONORING AN OLD FRIEND
Jeff’s years with Glen Campbell were filled with stories, shows and adventures, traveling and recording with one of America’s best-loved and most-respected country/pop artists of all time. It’s only natural that with Glen’s retirement since his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, there would be a demand for his music to still be heard. Jeff has been answering that call with some of his fellow band mates in….
Led by Glen Campbell’s former right-hand man, Jeff calls on fellow alumni from the tours and together they share the joys and fun, the stories behind the songs and an intimate reflection on the pain of a great friend slipping away from us all.The show is filled with Glen’s hits, all performed by Glen Campbell band members and Jeff. A great show, if you loved Glen and his music, then this is a must see show!
The loss of his old buddy prompted Jeff to write this song “Long Slow Train Out of Town”
