One of the world’s most popular funk bands Tower of Power, a staple of Californian soul-funk, is about to bring their revue to Auckland.

They’ve been 48 years on the road and the ever changing band line-up has seen the group change while staying true to the horn-led, groove focused sound they established in 1968. And they’re busier and more in demand than ever!

Eva Radich spoke to Tower Of Power founding member, saxophonist and bandleader Emilio Castillo.
