Tower of Power – 50th Anniversary Tour

Music Downtown

For over 50 years, Tower of Power has been creating their own kind of soul music. Well known in the ’70s for tunes such as “What is Hip?” and “You’re Still a Young Man,” TOP toured with Sly Stone and Credence Clearwater Revival, creating traffic jams when they started to headline their own shows. They performed on records with Neil Diamond, Smokey Robinson, Rod Stewart, Aerosmith, and Dionne Warwick, and influenced a generation of musicians (including Sting, who has told Emilio Castillo, founder of the group, that he once had a “Tower of Power clone band” before he formed The Police). In the 1980s, they backed Huey Lewis and the News on world tours. They continued to play their own music in between Lewis’s gigs.
