Tip Of The Top are a San Francisco Bay Area band that has taken the blues scene by storm since 2009. The band's musical style is reminiscent of the 1950's. Their live show delivers all the primitive pulsating rhythms, repetitive chord changes and gritty amplification that defines early American Rock 'n' Roll.
Jon Lawton (guitars/vocals), Frank DeRose (bass), Aki Kumar (harp/vocals) and Carlos Velasco (drums) have released Memphis To Greaseland with some of the band's finest original work and their unique, spontaneous take on blues classics.
They will sit and discuss their careers and the music they love.
