Tower of Power! ol' skool pros of the soul-funk gruv

Man! What a kickass band! The horns were so sweet, tight, laid back in the pocket. The vibe was retro - that old fashion revue type approach that is just pure entertainment...but the music packs virtuoistic punch of the prime cut order! They may be in their 50s and 60s (years old) but thev 41 years they've been strutting their damn funky stuff has surely paid off.
And the crowd was a nice balanced mix. Lots of the young bloods as well as 40 somethings like yours truly.
Just goes to show 'you can't keep a good (real, live) groove down'. It's always going to rise up and shake the butt of the people!!! Go TOP!
Here's some vintage TOP....
