Gip knows how to throw a party. The party is on every Saturday night at Henry “Gip” Gipson’s house. It’s one of the last of Birmingham’s secret treasures. Of course, like much about Gip’s kind of music, the Blues, that’s somewhat of a contradiction. The “house” is really Gip’s shed, backyard, and overflow areas and by now, it’s no longer a secret if you live anywhere near the Birmingham area. By the way, it’s really in Bessemer, a small city a few miles southwest of Birmingham.
