Music legends Tower of Power, the most dynamic and distinctive band in soul music, is roaring into its unprecedented 50th anniversary. The 10-piece Tower of Power band is prepared to throw down next year with a celebratory tour that finds the group as energized and inspired as ever.
Since its formation in Oakland, California in 1968, Tower of Power has forged a reputation as a band of high achieving musicians fluent in all realms of soul, rock and pop music, with a sophistication and punch like that of a big jazz band. From their first album “East Bay Grease” to their brand new album “Soul Side of Town,” the interracial band has become a pillar and signature of a music scene that included pioneering like-minded bands such as Sly & The Family Stone, Cold Blood, Graham Central Station, The Pointer Sisters and The Sons of Champlin, plus rock-oriented outfits such as Santana, Betty Davis and Journey.
Along with Tower of Power’s classic recordings, the 5-piece Tower of Power Horns, known for its power-packed punch and fullness with two trumpets, two tenor saxophones, plus a baritone sax on the bottom, became much in demand for studio sessions and live gigs. Among the hundreds of artists they have blessed with their presence are Elton John, Smokey Robinson, Huey Lewis & The News, Paul Shaffer, Aerosmith and TV’s “The Simpsons (Sing The Blues).”
Most importantly, when almost all other R&B bands abandoned their horn sections as the sound of soul music morphed into more stripped-down techno and synthesizer strains in the `80s, Tower of Power carried the torch. Faithful fans flocked to their concerts and purchased their new albums that kept the real soul vibe alive for decades.
