Glen Campbell - Salute to a Friend
salute to glen campbell
with jeff dayton, glen's bandleader and right-hand man for 15 years
Jeff’s 15 years as bandleader and guitarist with Glen Campbell were filled with shows, adventures and stories as they traveled and recorded together. From the Today Show (NBC) to their Live With The South Dakota Orchestra special (filmed for PBS and now on YouTube), from the Grand Ole Opry stage to the White House, their years together are remembered in Jeff's tribute to his mentor and friend.
Glen remains one of America’s best-loved and most-respected country/pop artists of all time, and since his Alzheimer’s battle and recent passing, there’s been a demand for his music to still be heard. Jeff has been answering that call with Salute to Glen Campbell, on tour now.
The show is filled with Glen’s hits, led by his former right-hand man. Here’s a review from September 14, 2018:
“What an amazing night it was last night seeing Jeff Dayton at the benefit for the Dementia Society of America in Doylestown PA. Jeff was absolutely outstanding. His tribute to Glen was so touching, heartwarming and just full of love and loyalty to the great man. He made everyone laugh with tales of Glen's humor, cry when he talked of the disease and filled everyone with joy from his songs.” (Kathy Jenkins Schick)
The show has been playing to standing-ovation crowds in Phoenix, Georgia, Los Angeles, Pennsylvania, Montana, Waikiki, Minneapolis and San Diego, plus Oklahoma, Colorado, South Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin and New York, the Caribbean and more. Check Jeff’s Tour page for info.
