Rhythm & Blues, Funk, Jazz, Pop, and Ska - nothing is too wild for The Tibbs! The octet delivers a unique blend of garage soul reminiscent of the music from Detroit and Philadelphia in the '60s and '70s. A retro style infused with The Tibbs' distinctive sound. With a lineup of drums, bass guitar, guitar, and Hammond, a three-piece brass section, and the powerful vocals of frontwoman Roxanne, the band stands strong. On January 26th, they released their brand-new album, 'Keep It To Yourself,' exuding the authentic Tibbs sound. For this album, the band drew inspiration from classic soul labels like Stax and Motown, as well as the New Orleans soul of Irma Thomas and Betty Harris.

The members of The Tibbs, led by vocalist Elsa Bekman, began in 2012 by revisiting obscure Northern Soul and Memphis Soul songs and instrumentals. Soon, there was a desire to create their own music. Their first full studio album, 'Takin' Over,' received praise both domestically and internationally, gaining airplay on radio stations across Europe and even in North America. But that wasn't the end of it! The release of 'Takin’ Over' led to sold-out venues from Milan to Frankfurt, festival performances in Hungary and Germany, and two sold-out tours in Spain. In late 2018, Elsa decided to pursue a solo career. Undaunted, The Tibbs embarked on a search for a replacement and found the fantastic Roxanne Hartog.
