The renowned horn-driven funk outfit Tower of Power is still
melding jazz, funk, rock and soul
in a way no group ever has, performing their original brand of funky soul and dance music with a horn-fired edge over their four decades on the scene. Their funk raged across the '70s like an uncontained brush fire, laying down the rhythm we were powerless to resist.
Over the years the band has
perfected the dynamics of the horn and rhythm sections
with vocals, guitar and keyboards riding in and out of that fast-flowing river of funk. They never sit back on a riff or an overlong solo. As Larry Braggs, their lead vocalist puts it, "... it's like a freight train out there. If you don't keep up, you're gonna get run over!"
Joining Tower will be the
equally epic soul/R&B
group, Average White Band, with their Scottish funk and early disco vibe. Formed in 1972, their roots may have been Scottish, but the collective heart of the band belonged to the soulful sounds coming from Memphis, Detroit, and Philadelphia in the 60's. Though perhaps best known for their instrumental mega-hit "Pick Up the Pieces," the band's strengths lay in their consistently tight song-writing, stretching across several gold-selling albums and multiple Grammy nominations.
If you love horns and you love the funk, do not miss this double bill at the Klein.
