Tower of Power returns to Tokyo!

Some claim this group to be “the best soul, funk and rock ‘n’ roll band in the world,” and these guys do their best to live up to that claim. The boys from the bay area are about to blow into the Tokyo Blue Note on Tuesday and Wednesday night (10/3 and 4) with 2 shows nightly. (Click here for more details.)   In our phone conversation with band leader Emilio Castillio we talk about the groups longevity, their struggles with drugs and alcohol, and a possible book about their history.

And… we also asked Mr. Castillio about the possibility of having TOWER of POWER do a cover of the ever-popular HAWAII 5-O theme song. You’ll be tickled to hear what he has to say.
