Bluetip was a rock band from Washington, D.C., forming in March 1995 by ex-members of Swiz. They released four albums, an EP, and a number of singles before splitting up in January 2002.[1] Originally, the band was to be named The Ohio Blue Tip, however the name was shortened to Bluetip early on.[2]

In 2001, when Farrell moved to New York, the band eventually folded. Farrell, Stern, and Gorelick have since gone on to form Red Hare with former Swiz singer, Shawn Brown [3].
