More than 50 years strong, Tower of Power will perform MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa at 8 p.m., Friday, Jan 31 and Saturday, Feb.1. Tickets range from $40 for general admission to $60 for reserved seating. After all these years, the band is still making new music, having released “Soul Side of Town” in 2018. ToP has made regular pilgrimages to Lake Tahoe, through tough times and good. Oakland’s Tower of Power is one of those bands that has stood the test of time. Formed in 1968, it blossomed in the golden era of soul and funk music of the 1960s and 1970s and was one of the first signed to legendary promoter Bill Graham’s record label. Tower’s revved-up funk rhythms, massive five-piece horn section and soul-styled songwriting helped establish the East Bay- style of music is known for introducing a little grease lightning into R&B. Throughout its prime, ToP released a number of legendary albums, including “East Bay Grease” and “Back To Oakland,” and sent singles such as “Sparkling In The Sand” and “What Is Hip?” and “So Very Hard To Go” up the charts.
