CL RECOMMENDS
CL's Hal Horowitz Recommends: Of course the members have changed over the decades (few could name the many lead singers who have joined and left their ranks), but the iconic San Francisco horn funk/ soul band has already passed the 50th anniversary mark and shows no signs of slowing down. You’ll get timeless classics like “What Is Hip?” and “Knock Your- self Out” but even the less popular material connects live when co-founder/baritone sax player Doc Kupka gets to dancing. No one leaves without a goofy smile plastered on their face, reason enough to see these guys before they call it a day. — HH

From the venue:

Bandleader and saxophonist Emilio Castillo was only 17 years old when he met Kupka and started to assemble the band that would become Tower of Power. “I had no vision at all,” he recalls now. “I just loved playing soul music. My idols were a local band called The Spyders and they had gigged in Sacramento. I thought, ‘Man, if I could just get to Sacramento that would be it.’ That's literally how small my vision was.”
