The Russ Tippins Electric Band
May 21, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
“Classic rock fans looking for a new band to follow ought to check out Russ Tippins, whose music is full of contemporary energy but hearkens back to the glory days of Rush, Humble Pie, and Stevie Ray Vaughn.”
Kevin Oliver, freelance music critic, Columbia, South Carolina
“This is a guy who can give you an acoustic Classical Gas in a small bar and yet plays such dynamic guitar he can, and in my view should be, filling major venues …. major, major, man ..”
The Blues Man in the Hat, Review from Hebden Blues Festival 2012
The Russ Tippins Electric Band plays Yorkshire again on 21st May 2016 with a gig at The Meeting Room in Elland – a great opportunity to see the band that’s rocked blues festivals across the UK playing at this intimate venue now attracting some serious talent.
The band’s first album ‘Electrickery’ made Classic Rock magazine’s ‘Album of the Month’ on its release, and has since earned them plaudits from blues writers and broadcasters on both sides of the Atlantic.
A mini-tour of the US midwest in 2011 after the CD got significant airplay on a number of Blues radio shows in Indiana, Missouri and Nebraska resulted in rave reviews and Russ received a 1st-round nomination for a 2012 BMA in Memphis.
The band has appeared at major British Blues festivals, Maryport, Hebden Blues and Colne R&B, with live shows in continental Europe. The song ‘Little Josephine’ made CLASSIC ROCK writers’ top ten list and was featured on the Magazine’s cover-CD alongside artists such as Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
