Nick Moss and his Flip Tops sizzle in live performance hundreds of times a year, bringing their superior blues to clubs from Cape Cod all the way west to southern California with countless stops in between. Back home, Nick considers Buddy Guy's Legends and the House of Blues, where he and the Flip Tops were the original ï¿½Houseï¿½ band, his favorite haunts.
Nick Moss knows he has something special happening. ï¿½I feel like I'm one of the only bands from Chicago that's actually still playing Chicago blues the way people think of Chicago blues. I've gotten [praise] from a lot of the old-timers that have seen us play, even guys that are not from Chicago like Kim Wilson, Rod Piazza, and Charlie Baty and Rick Estrin of Little Charlie & the Nightcats. [They say] it's great to see there's actually a band from Chicago that actually plays Chicago blues.ï¿½ No question about it.
