Tripper
March 2004

Tripper's energetic pop/rock has carved out a niche in the rising Detroit music scene with its storytelling style. the band has drawn comparisons to toad the wet sprocket, Third Eye Blind, Matchbox 20, Lit, Goo Goo Dolls and even Dave Matthews. The band kicked off March of 2004 by performing at Detroit's brand new Hard Rock Café.

During the past five years, Tripper has performed on some of the best stages in the Midwest, been featured on commercial radio in Detroit and named one of the "Best Unsigned Bands" on the now-defunct MP3.com. Before MP3.com shut down, Tripper songs had been downloaded more than 20,000 times from the site.

The band was formed in 1999 by guitarists Steve Marvicsin and Frank Buscemi, who were both performing as solo, acoustic artists at Central Michigan University's "Gentle Friday" festival.
Drummer Ken Thomas, who had performed with Buscemi for several years prior, keyboardist Aaron Berch and bassist Rob Carr later joined to round out the lineup.

Tripper is currently promoting its second full-length release, Yesterday, Friday & Today, while the record's first track, "Clearly Mistaken" is featured on three compilation CDs - two in the U.S. and one in Australia.

Amazon.com says of the release, "The second release from the Detroit-based pop/rock quartet, Tripper, entitled "yesterday, friday & today", blends edgy guitars and great melodies with storytelling lyrics. From the word "go" muttered at the beginning of "Clearly Mistaken", the driving opening track to "One Summertime", the closing country-inspired number, the album never loses its grip on the listener. Yesterday, Friday & Today is passionate, driving and fun - and a great addition to any collection."
