New Orleans Times-Picayune Hails Tipitina!

The New Orleans Times-Picayune recently paid homage to UK Birmingham based band Tipitina fronted by singer Debbie Jones and pianist Justin Randall.

Big Bear Music described Tipitina’s achievements as “a testament to the rich musical heritage of the Crescent City, but also to the quality, integrity of New Orleans style bands in the UK.”

Keith Spera’s article tells how “Tipitina finally met Tipitina’s” and about Debbie and Justin’s magical 16 days in New Orleans, enhanced by a very personal discovery.

A highlight of their tour was a meeting with 102 year-old jazz trumpeter Lionel Ferbos following his performance at a private function.

The Times-Picayune article, “Singer and pianist of English Band Tipitina lived a fantasy on first visit to New Orleans”, reveals all about Debbie and Justin’s very special 16 days in New Orleans.

Back in the UK, Tipitina will close their 2013 tour in London at Ronnie Scott’s on Sunday, 20th October.
