Tower of Power Announces First Major Tour in 2 Years
Legendary soul, funk, and R&B group Tower of Power has unveiled a new spring tour of the U.S. that marks their first major outing since the beginning of the pandemic. Running from February to April, the trek will begin in Nevada before jumping to Florida and focusing on the East Coast.
The Bay Area icons are known for their bubbling bass lines, originally provided by the late Francis “Rocco” Prestia. Bassist Marc Van Wageningen, who had filled in for Prestia through the years, became a full-fledged member of the group in 2018 and has been carrying on the tradition.
Both bassists were on hand for Tower of Power’s 50th anniversary concert, which became a live album called Tower of Power – 50 Years of Funk & Soul: Live at the Fox Theater – Oakland, CA – June 2018.
