Tower of Power has been delivering their unique brand of soul music to fans since 1968.

Since 1968, Tower of Power has been delivering their unique brand of soul music to fans and "souled out" crowds as they tour the world each year. From their 1970 debut record East Bay Grease to today, a half-century later, the iconic East Bay soul-funk-R&B troupe is still going strong. Filmed live at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, in 2018, Tower of Power: 50 Years of Funk and Soul airs thursday, March 10 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV. When you tune in, you'll learn more about their April 13th performance at Kodak Center.

Their signature sound is comprised of funky, vibrant, intricately woven songs that exhibit a wide range of musicality that’s both modern and electrifying.  From “What is Hip?,” “So Very Hard to Go” and “You’re Still a Young Man” to “Soul Vaccination,” “Squib Cakes,” “Don’t Change Horses,” “The Soul Side of Town,” “Soul With a Capital S,” and “Digging on James Brown,” Tower of Power has provided the soundtrack for generations.
