A renowned horn-driven outfit from Oakland, CA, Tower of Power emerged in the late '60s playing a dynamic blend of R&B, soul, funk, and AM pop. The window-rattling grooves and raucous party spirit of ToP has been a balm for the soul throughout the band’s half-century existence.
Emilio Castillo was only 17 years old when he met Stephen “Doc” 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.”
The band has long since surpassed Castillo’s admittedly modest aspirations, traveling the world, enjoying hit singles on their own and backing some of the most legendary artists of the last 50 years – a list that includes Otis Redding, Elton John, Santana, the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, and countless others. In the process they have defined an “Oakland soul” sound as instantly recognizable as those from Castillo’s hometown, Detroit, as well as inspirations like Memphis and Philadelphia.
