A need to play, live and love Rock and Roll to its fullest potential brought
The Tip together in the spring of 2014. Formed as a super group from
Nashville’s finest rock and roll bands rolled into one, The Tip plays faster,
harder, louder and tighter than anyone that has crossed their path. The
band doesn’t even need to play a note before people start turning heads
to see what these four cast of characters have to offer. Late nights, hot
licks and boundless energy are exactly The Tip are made of. Rock and
Roll dreams never get this good.
The Tip was born in 2014, when front man Benny Carl and drummer Dixie
Carl joined forces with guitarist Ricky Dover Jr. and (now former) bassist
Drew Uldrich in a Nashville rehearsal space. With the hunger and deep
desire to play full on, high energy rock and roll, the boys spent days and
nights together and quickly emerged with debut EP “Killing It Wasted”.
Between several tours, The Tip recorded and released its first full-length
self-titled album in the summer of 2015. After Drew left the group, the
boys found their new bass player Robby Bote while playing Chicago’s
famous venue ‘Double Door’.
Wasting no time they hit the road for a West Coast tour in January 2016,
followed by more touring on the East Coast and Midwest. The band’s
brew of blues-infused, dirty rock and roll and hardworking ethic has
gradually started to turn many heads in the rock industry, which has led to
recent opening spots for Buckcherry, The Darkness,
Sebastian Bach, The Last Vegas and Queensryche front man Geoff
Tate’s band Operation: Mindcrime as well as several performances at
festival ‘Rocklahoma’. August 2016 saw the release of the band’s second
album titled “Sailor’s Grave” – a manifest to the band’s no-nonsense,
adrenaline fueled, hard rockin’ attitude.
