North East three-piece together since the tail end of 2009, playing Rock & Blues covers and their own compositions. Russ Tippins is one of the most competent musicians to emerge from the North East rock scene in recent years. His live performances do exactly what it says on the tin = ELECTRIC!
The Russ Tippins Band don't go in for gimmicks - just three guys, one on drums, one on bass guitar, and one singing and playing lead. No wild lead man microphone a-swinging, no outragous hair-pieces, no jumping on tables, no audience participation - in fact what they have going for them may seem so blatantly simple that you may wonder why many other bands haven't got such a great reputation by duplicating it - just great guitar-based, down to earth rock n roll!
The Russ Tippins Electric Band tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Jan 2011.
