For Fans Of R&B / Soul Music / Jazz
Tower of Power
Oakland, California music legends Tower of Power - the most dynamic and distinctive band of survivors in Soul Music – is roaring into its unprecedented 50th anniversary with a dynamic new disc of all new material that finds them as energized and inspired as ever. A labor of love, definitively titled Soul Side of Town, this package is charged with 14 filler-free songs. In the spirit of their enduring theme song “Oakland Stroke” – the bookending intro and outro “East Bay” shine a light on elemental instrumental ingredients within the band’s signature sound. This astounding and historical release (available June 1, 2018 in digital, vinyl, streaming & CD configurations) inaugurates Tower of Power’s fresh affiliation with Mack Avenue Records, a Detroit-based company renowned for its award-winning dedication to top-tier Jazz that is now extending its support to Soul and Funk giants, Tower of Power: a band so one-of-a-kind, it’s an institution.
Sweetwater All Stars
The Sweetwater All Stars will be taking the stage prior to Tower of Power to help ring in the holidays in conjunction with the annual Christmas on Broadway Celebration that will be occurring prior to the show at Broadway Plaza just a mile from the Clyde. The Sweetwater All Stars is a nine piece rhythm and blues band made up of employees of Sweetwater Sound, Inc. in Fort Wayne, IN. The band is a “who’s who” of musicians and music professionals from all over the country including Nick D’Virgilio (Genesis, Tears For Fears) on drums, Don Carr (James Brown, The Oak Ridge Boys) on lead guitar, Phil Naish (Elton John, Steven Curtis Chapman) on keys, Kat Bowser (Oleta Adams, Jon Secada) on vocals on Sweetwater’s owner and CEO, Chuck Surack on saxophone-and that’s just to name a few. The band performs a variety of music that is primarily focused on early Motown, Stax, Chess and Atlantic artists.
