5 stars - Tipitina are Highly Recommended
booked Tipitina for their Wedding at The Place Aparthotel in Lancashire

“Words fail me as to how fantastic this group are. For anyone who is considering them for any event, I and my new hubby, can wholeheartedly recommend them. The feel of their sound made our day extra special, its not often that a group can make your wedding stand out above others, but they did it effortlessly and Debbie's vocals are stunning, she held the room and didn't let it go with the most fantastic upbeat vocals and sounds. I cant praise them enough, but here are a few adjectives to describe them: Amazing, fabulous, awesome, magnificent, formidable, beautiful. I hope this review encapsulates what we and all our friends and family thought of their wicked performance. Thank you Tipitina – Peter & Alvaro”

Full Biography

It doesn’t often happen, and that’s putting it mildly. When was the last time a bundle of youthful energy, polished musicianship and originality like Tipitina landed on the mat unannounced? It’s quite disconcerting.

‘Where did this suddenly come from?’ you ask. The prosaic reply is Preston, Lancs, but the real answer is New Orleans and a few other hot spots along the way; from juke joints and dance halls, warm nights and windy streets, good times remembered and a few bad moments best forgotten.

“A wholly admirable album, the youthful energy, sincerity and obvious affection for the New Orleans style is captivating – a sure-fire club and festival attraction”
- Jazz Journal

“To capture the spirit of New Orleans so fully, from a base in the North West of England is a spectacular achievement”
- The Guardian

“Instantly recognisable, Tipitina are really on to something”
- Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2

2009 was the year that Tipitina shot from obscurity with an acclaimed debut album and a series of tremendous live shows.

New Orleans good-time blues, barrelhouse, gospel and rhythm & blues, the voice of Debbie Jones and the piano of Justin Randall is what it's all about.
