"At the age of 14, Kip felt ready to take some of what he had learned and apply it to his own brand of music. He put together a group of young musicians and within a few years attained local success in his hometown of Huntington, Long Island. His musical talent did not go unnoticed and upon High School graduation, Kip was asked to audition for a position as a section leader in the United States Military Academy Band at West Point. He was one of over 300 young men anxious for the opportunity to work with such an outstanding orchestra. Kip got the position and for 3 years worked with one of the finest bands in the world. It was here that he developed the poise and self-assurance necessary for success in the entertainment industry.
In the early 1970's Kip was signed by Hi-Records, a Memphis based record company. He cut two successful singles and later two albums. Many years of road touring followed. During those hectic years he came into contact with some of the finest musicians in the country, including Cornell Dupree and Jimmy Allen Smith from the band Stuff, with whom Kip collaborated on his two albums. During the 1960's and 1970's, Kip opened for acts such as Neil Diamond, Maxine Brown, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Tanya Tucker, the James Cotton Blues Band, the Brecker Brothers, Anne Murray, and the Fabulous Platters." - KC Bio
