Tipitina are the real thing, a hugely talented combo performing the red hot and rocking music from the New Orleans of Doctor John, James Booker, Professor Longhair and Fats Domino.
Blues In Britain magazine reviewed their second album: “A wonderful CD, it superbly captures how this incredible band sound au naturel, phenomenal. 10/10”
Though not a jazz band, there’s enough jazz in there for Tipitina to be voted 3rd in the Best Small Group category of the 2017 British Jazz Awards, as well as being awarded runner-up in the jazz category of the 2017 Urban Music Awards.
Rock’n’Reel Magazine wrote “a joyous ride through up-tempo feel-good rockers and gospel tinged blues. Tipitina are a barnstorming live act, few do this with such conviction”
The band have long been the leading attraction at The Birmingham Jazz Festival, sell out Ronnie Scotts, favourites at both Upton Jazz and Upton Blues Festivals and represented the Royal Albert Hall in the West End Live Festival.
