LIVE! Russ Tippins Electric Band

This power trio from Newcastle, England, are built around the smoky Strat licks and soaring voice of Russ Tippins. CLASSIC ROCK, the UK’s leading music magazine made Electrickery their Blues Album of the Month Dec 2010, calling it “screamingly good”.

The night is split into 2 sets, first being acoustic from Dick Dale's Misirlou, the folky version of Whiskey In The jar to Zep's Going To California and a daring acoustic Kashmir and an interesting Uriah Heep's Gypsy, all via a bit Bowie, some Sparks and ELO's Mr Blue Sky.
For the "Electric" second part, things keep rolling, Neil Young covers being a notable highlight as well as some storming AC/DC, Hendrix's Purple Have and Foxy Lady back to back and the "other" way of doing Whiskey In The Jar and a classy Comfortably Numb.
