ABOUT TOWER OF POWER

For over 55 years, Tower of Power has delivered the best in funk and soul music—beginning as soul band The Motowns. The name change resulted from a goal they had in mind. East Bay Grease defined Tower of Power’s sound and landed them with Warner Bros. Bump City, their 1972 label debut and both a Billboard 200 and R&B Albums chart success, netted hits “You’re Still A Young Man” and “Down to The Nightclub.” The ‘70s were a boom period with radio classics like “So Very Hard to Go” and “What Is Hip?” The band continued to tour and record over the years, and in 2018 returned to Oakland to celebrate their landmark 50th anniversary. Their window-rattling grooves and raucous party spirit have been a balm for the soul throughout their existence, and their release of 50 Years of Funk & Soul: Live at the Fox Theater couldn’t have arrived at a better time. The band long ago surpassed their modest aspirations, traveling the world and enjoying hit singles on their own and backing Otis Redding, Elton John, Santana, Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, and countless other legendary artists. In the process they’ve defined an “Oakland Soul” sound as instantly recognizable as those from founding member Emilio Castillo’s hometown Detroit and inspirations like Memphis and Philadelphia. Tower of Power’s love of the stage is the same today as it was in 1968. Their future, set out to be vigorous and dynamic, will prove just that for fans around the world starved for the band’s groove—the way Tower of Power likes it!
