BandRockPop

Energetic, edgy, guitar-driven, storytelling pop/rock from Detroit.

Biography

Tripper formed in 1999 to provide modern rock to the masses. The band is influenced by a wide range of artists, from Matchbox 20, Bon Jovi, the Goo Goo Dolls, to 80s glam rock, the Beatles and many others. The thing that we hear sets us apart from most bands is that we don't try to do what's cool "at the moment" - we do what we've been doing for the past seven years. We put on a good show, write solid songs and be humble about it. We strive to be a band that others want to work with. During the past four years we've worked with national acts like the Gin Blossoms; Seven Mary Three; Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers (twice); Shurman; Foghat; Lou Gramm; and Greenwheel.

You & Me

You & Me

Music: Tripper; Lyrics: Buscemi

Standing on 5th Avenue, the silhouettes and shadows move
You tell me what this means to you, the taxi ride, the city view
This perfect day, this perfect place, your smile waves across your face
And I guess I would be remiss not to ask for one more kiss from you

Sleeping in the afternoon, your subtleness, the way you move
There’s nothing else I’d rather do than hang around the house with you
And don’t you know I’d wait all night to wake with you in warm sunlight
No matter what the world believes, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be

And nothing’s like it’s been before
Nothing less, nothing more
And all I want you to know
You’ll never be alone, you’ll never be alone, because

It’s you and me
In everything I do, in everything I see
It’s you and me
And all I want to say, the only thing that matters now is you

I watch you watch the red sunset, another thing I won’t forget
Your body moves inside my head, like every word you’ve ever said
Come summer, winter, spring or fall, I’d walk with you right through it all
To make it to that perfect day, to make it to that perfect place

And nothing’s like it’s been before
Nothing less, nothing more
And all I want you to know
You’ll never be alone, you’ll never be alone, because

It’s you and me
In everything I do, in everything I see
It’s you and me
And all I want to say, the only thing that matters now is you

Set List

Our set consists of mostly tripper songs, depending on the length of the set. We usually do a 45 minute or an hour set per show. However, we sometimes do two sets which consist of Tripper songs, plus covers from the 80s (Prince, Adam Ant, Loverboy, Mellencamp, Bad Company) 90s (Bush, Gin Blossoms, Better Than Ezra) and some oldies like Neil Diamond, the Beatles and others. We try to pick covers that fans would not expect us to do...
