Jeff Dayton and his band will present their Salute to Glen Campbell show at Wautoma’s McComb/Bruchs Performing Arts Center on Saturday November 9 at 7:00 PM. The performance is sponsored by ACE Hardware of Wautoma & Ripon, Bug Tussel Wireless/AT&T, Craig & Julie Walker, Cooperative Care, Gary & Carol Williams at Graphic Associates, Holt’s Fine Jewelry, WDUX Radio and Silvercryst Supper Club.
A heartwarming evening of Glen’s biggest hits and the stories behind them. All delivered by Glen’s right hand man for 15 years, band leader and guitarist Jeff Dayton. Enjoy a night of intimate, fun and uplifting music from America’s TV favorite and Hall of Fame legend – Glen Campbell.
From the White House to the Grand Ole Opry, Jeff Dayton has been playing guitar and performing all his life. He’s a Nashville producer and writer and loves the concentrated creative scene in Music City. He’s had the honor of backing artists including Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Buck Owens, Tracy Byrd, Bo Diddley, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Autry, Mac Davis and touring with megastar Kenny Chesney, Lee Greenwood, Sarah Darling, Tammy Cochran and others.
Jeff’s first guitar was at the age of 9 and he immediately formed his first band, The Emperors. From there, it was local clubs and concerts, playing his dues and working with musicians who became sidemen for Prince and Bob Dylan. He moved to Arizona, got his first Nashville song contracts and put together one of the most popular and acclaimed bands in the Phoenix music scene over his 20 years there. One fateful chance encounter with Glen Campbell led to his longtime tenure on that tour and set the stage for his move to Nashville in 2000.
You might have caught Jeff on the big and small screen too. He has made appearances on three episodes of Hawaii Five-O and ten episodes of Nashville, plus a Toby Keith music video Honkytonk U and the film The Identical.
“In my fifteen years here, it’s the best show we’ve ever had” – Bill Donati, Schuler Theater – Raton, NM
“Great job, Glen would be proud” – Clarke Rigsby, engineer for Paul McCartney – Tower of Power
