    Tower of Power on the horns

    Anyone see ToP lately. How were they sounding? Next Friday, they are playing at Deer Valley and someone has offered me tix.

    I saw them back around the start of the pandemic. Sounded great. The young singer, I can't remember his name but he's really good. As woodsy said, check out the Tiny Desk video.

    One of the best if not the best horn sections ever. That being said. I have seen them multiple times, but not recently.

    When I saw them in park city. At some theater, years ago circa 2013 that was single handedly the absolute lamest crowd I have ever seen at a show. ToP was great though. House of blues in NOLA; well, that was a different experience completely.

    You should definitely go.

    Would not pass on an opportunity to see them in any way shape or form.. Legendary!

    Collab with the metal band Riot around 1988... There's also a sweet Racing with the Devil on a Spanish Highway De Miola cover on this album..

    Id love to see ToP. As good as it gets for a live show. Free tix is a no brainer. Enjoy!
