Tipitina

Tipitina – with Debbie Jones’ powerful gospel-tinged vocals and Justin Randall’s mighty two-handed piano - deliver their own unique take on the blues, barrelhouse, boogie and gospel of New Orleans, in the footsteps of Professor Longhair, Dr. John, James Booker, Fats Domino and Allen Toussaint.Tipitina’s second CD for Big Bear, Taking Care of Business, recorded at 2011's Birmingham International Jazz & Blues Festival supported by Colmore BID, was greeted by uniformly enthusiastic reviews:

"A wonderful CD, it superbly captures how this incredible band sound au naturelle...phenomenal 10/10 [Blues In Britain].

"A joyous ride through up-tempo feel-good rockers, gospel-tinged ballads and crowd-pleasing sing-alongs. They're a barnstorming live act, few do this with such conviction. [Rock 'N' Reel]
