The seeds of The TIP were sown when Benny Carl, Dixie Carl and Ricky Dover Jr met bassist Drew Uldrich knocking on the door of their rehearsal space in the spring of 2014. The simple gesture let to a perfect match up between the four musicians, and by June the band was playing their first show at legendary Atlanta strip-club The Claremont Lounge.
The independently released four song, “Killin’ It Wasted EP” quickly followed, and by November of the same year the band was on tour with Hollywood’s Hammered Satin (Burger Records).
After linking up with NashTray Productions in East Nashville, the band released their self-titled debut album in the summer of 2015. The Tip has since repeatedly toured the East Coast and the Midwest. In January 2016, the band embarked on its first 26 date West Coast tour with new bass player Robby Bote.
