Over the period of about 6 years an eclectic group of musicians came together from the "roots" music scene in Adelaide. The Hiptones grew and coalesced in 2005 into the current lineup of Snooks La Vie on Vocals, Brother T on Hammond and bass, Nick Kipridis on guitar and Jamie Jones on the skins. The Hiptones is a roots band that can play with a style of their own and they write like they play.
The Hiptones sound is a gumbo of the roots music with a pop sensibility. Out front is Snooks, a white soul singer with an incredibly powerful voice. Brother T drives the bass and Hammond organ deftly bridging the gap between retro funk and new soul. Nick Kipridis lays down sublime guitar in the feel of BB King, also being able to provide that Atlantic R&B funk attack and Jamie Jones on the skins, can do it all.
