No matter who you are, where you live, or your taste in music, TOWER OF POWER will find you. And once that happens, it’s all over.
You will come to believe not only that soul music is the salvation of us all, but that Tower of Power is one of those rare bands who can claim to be the real deal, 100-proof, aged-to-perfection, ground-zero soul.
And the thing is, they’re everywhere now.
Of course they’re still on the radio, their up-front brass section serving as the prototype for today’s retro-swing bands, and lending their singular horns to immortal tracks by Elton John, Rod Stewart, the Eurythmics, and Phish.
But the truest testament to Tower of Power remains the band’s formidable concert appearances. Stand in front of the stage at their show and bathe in the sonic blast of brass and funk. “Tighter than a clenched fist,” says The Hollywood Reporter. “For almost two hours,” gushes The Fresno Bee, “the band members let loose with an energy-filled show that left a sell-out crowd on its feet, dancing in the aisles and applauding with feeling for a band it’s loved for more than 25 years.”
Tower of Power’s live album, Soul Vaccination (1999), is on Sony 550 Music/Legacy Records.
