Spirit of the Beatles comes to GEM Theatre

The Day Trippers, a Vancouver-based Beatles tribute band, will be playing Beatles favourites.

The Day Trippers play at the GEM Theatre Friday

The excitement of the early 1960’s spirit that The Beatles brought to the stage is coming to Grand Forks’ own GEM Theatre!

The Day Trippers, a Vancouver-based Beatles tribute band, will be playing favourites such as She Loves You, From Me to You and I Feel Fine, as well as Roll Over Beethoven and Act Naturally.

The band features Marty Zylstra as John, Nick Jones as Paul, Mike Coutts as George and Mike Herle as Ringo.

“Authenticity is extremely important to us,” Zylstra said. “We have gone to great lengths to learn each and every part of every song as accurately as possible to authentically recreate this great music.

“We even use all the same gear that was originally used and the suits we wear are exact replicas of the actual suits worn by The Beatles.”

The Day Trippers take the stage at the GEM Theatre on Friday, Aug. 7 starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25, and are available in advance at the GEM. Visits the theatre’s website at gemtheatre.net for more information.
