Tip Tops at The Hangout—Free!

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011
Tip Tops, band, music, dance, party, Gulf Shores, Alabama

The Hangout hosts Tip Tops, a free show to dance the night away on Thursday, September 15, 2011.

If you’ve grooved to the beat of the Tip Tops, you understand why they are among the most popular dance bands in the Southeast. For those who have not had the pleasure, your time is now!

The Hangout, home of great music and great fun, is hosting a locals appreciation/Shrimp Festival kick-off/Chamber After Hours event on Thursday, September 15, with the Tip Tops performing free from 6 until 10 p.m., and everyone is invited.

The Tip Tops will take you back to the heyday of Motown, complete with “The Topettes” performing music of The Supremes, The Pointer Sisters and more. And “The Dancing Horns” fast-stepping brass ensemble adds such tremendous energy to each song that you will find it impossible to sit still at any time during the evening—even if dancing is not your thing.

The best live party music covering the ’50s to the ’80s requires outstanding talent, great harmonies, costume changes and upbeat choreography. You’ll find all of this in the amazing package presented by the Tip Tops. It will be a fabulous evening, so bring some friends and meet more friends Thursday at The Hangout.

Once you’ve experienced the thrill of their show, you’ll want to watch our Concerts and Music page for the Tip Tops’ next local appearance and encourage your not-so-local friends to join you there. You can even let them know of the wonderful beach vacation Hot Deals that can be found for select properties, such as beautiful Perdido Key condos or Gulf Shores houses.
