Back by popular demand, Tower of Power returns for a night of soul and funk music at the Palace Theater in Waterbury, on Saturday, April 27, at 8pm.  Tickets for the Naugatuck Savings Bank sponsored show are $40 and can be purchased online at, by phone at 203-346-2000, or in person at the box office, 100 East Main Street in Waterbury.  A special V.I.P. ticket package is also available for $75, which includes orchestra seating and admission to a pre-show reception featuring appetizers, stuffed breads, mini pizzas, stuffed mushrooms and tortellini by D’Amelios Italian Eatery.

For the past 44 years, Tower of Power has delivered their unique brand of music to sold-out crowds across the world. The self-proclaimed “Urban Soul” band’s approach to the way they play music is totally their own. Their groove laid rhythm section, unique horn-driven sound, and outstanding lead vocals combine to make one of the most dynamic groups of musicians to ever perform on stage.  Original members Emilio Castillo, Rocco Prestia, Stephen Kupka, and David Garibaldi remain at the helm of the ten piece ensemble, and their creative vision and dedication still guide the band today. With such hits as “What is Hip?” and “You’re Still a Young Man,” Tower of Power is one of those rare bands who can claim to be the real deal, 100 proof, aged-to-perfection Soul.

Earlier that day, prior to the show, the Palace Theater will host its Second Annual Motorcycle Ride benefiting the Children’s Ticket and Travel Fund.  Following the ride, there will be a free street fair, featuring vendors, food and live entertainment. The day will end with Tower of Power’s performance on the Palace Theater stage. Special combo packages are available, which include the Motorcycle Ride registration fee and Tower of Power concert ticket for $55. For more information, call the box office at 203-346-2000.
