Tip The Van / Press

“Their style and attitude of just enjoying the moment really captured my attention as they played the show and had a blast doing it. I admire the band’s commitment to their music and their fans.”

“Tip the Van pump out a mighty wall of ska-rock that lives somewhere between Dance Hall Crashers and a band like Reel Big Fish. Whether one prefers more post-2 Tone or vintage ska to the punk or rock spectrum of ska hyphenates, there is no question that Tip the Van puts on a helluva good show.”

“Tip The Van are the up-and-coming female-fronted ska-pop group from Connecticut.”

“Tip the Van put out a three track EP titled “Passion, Love & Pride” last year. The songs reflect how much the group has grown through song writing, music, and delivery and proves to be their finest work yet.”

"Catchy. Upbeat. Ska. Three hot girls and three guys with mustaches. Fuck. Yeah."

“The clear appeal of Tip the Van was perhaps best summed up by the band themselves. "Are you guys [Facebook] friends with us yet?" Nicole Oliva asked teasingly midway through the set. "Because you should be."”

“My vote goes to Tip The Van. Fronted by sisters Simone and Nicole Oliva, this CT ska/punk/pop outfit knows how to put on a show.”

“One of the bright moments was when [Reel Big Fish] teamed up with their opening act, the female-fronted power ska band from Connecticut Tip The Van, to sing "She Has a Girlfriend Now." The packed stage led to a dynamic and fun-filled performance that won't be soon forgotten by any who attended.”

“4 years in a row now that Tip the Van have won the Best Reggae/Ska Band vote. This past summer, sisters & co-frontwomen Nicole & Simone Oliva made it back onto the Vans Warped Tour — the same tour that rocketed TTV to the top of our polls in '06 — as backup vocalists for Big D & the Kids Table”

“Tip the Van put on a stellar show, partly in support of their most recent EP, Passion, Love & Pride. The Connecticut-based band is female-fronted by sisters Nicole and Simone Oliva, who formed the ska-outfit during their high school years.”

“Tip the Van, lead by Simone and Nicole Oliva, put on a solid show as the crowd warmed up their vocal cords.”

“TTV is taking things to another level”
