'55 Years of Funk & Soul': Tower of Power to keep the groove going at OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino

Press Release

Get your best funky outfit ready! Tower of Power will be making a stop at the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino at 8 p.m. March 2, 2024.

For over 55 years, Tower of Power has delivered the best in funk and soul music. “East Bay Grease” defined their sound and landed them with Warner Brothers. “Bump City,” their 1972 debut for the label, was a hit on both the Billboard 200 and the R&B albums chart and netted them the hits “You’re Still A Young Man” and “Down to The Nightclub.” The ’70s were a boom period with radio classics such as “So Very Hard to Go” and “What Is Hip?” The band continued to tour and record over the years.

In 2018, they returned to Oakland to celebrate their landmark 50th anniversary. The band’s window-rattling grooves and raucous party spirit has been a balm for the soul throughout their half-century existence, but the release of “50 Years of Funk & Soul: Live at the Fox Theater” couldn’t have arrived at a better time.

Tower of Power has traveled the world, enjoying hit singles on their own and backing legendary artists including Otis Redding, Elton John, Santana, the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, and countless others. In the process they’ve defined an “Oakland soul” sound.

Niagara Casinos Vice President of Marketing Cathy Price said, “Tower of Power brings an energetic and invigorating mixture of R&B, soul, jazz, funk, rock and pop to their music, and we are so excited to welcome them to the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino.”

Tickets for the Tower of Power performance go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 24. Visit www.ticketmaster.ca
