Since 1968, Tower of Power has delivered their unique brand of music to their fans, appearing before sold out crowds as they tour the world each year. Tower’s sound can be hard to categorize, but the band’s leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as “Urban Soul Music.”
Tower’s rhythm section lays down a groove like no other band. The band’s horn driven sound is unique, and the way they approach everything, from writing and arranging to mixing and performing, is totally their own. Combine all of that with an outstanding lead vocalist and you have one of the most dynamic groups of musicians to ever hit the stage.
Come and join the party as we say thank you to Tower of Power for supplying us with 50 years of the funkiest music around.
“Soul Vaccination” is a funk big band that plays the music of T.O.P. A powerhouse of Jazz and soul musicians from the UK led by leading bass player Laurence Cottle. Soul vaccination will “funk the dumb stuff” and “Give you the Proof” you need to make you “Souled out”. So if you’re “Still a young man” and “Diggin on James Brown”, you know “What is Hip?”. Come and sing along to the hits or just get “on the serious side”. A fiftieth birthday party not to miss.
