About this show

TOWER OF POWER will co-headline with WAR at the newly renovated San Jose Civic on Saturday, December 8.

For over 40 years, TOWER OF POWER has been creating their own style of soul music. Since 1968, TOWER OF POWER has delivered their unique brand of music to their fans, appearing before sold out crowds as they tour the world each year. Tower's sound can be hard to categorize, but the band's leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as "Urban Soul Music." With hits such as "So Very Hard to Go," "What is Hip" and "You're Still a Young Man," Tower's rhythm section lays down a groove like no other band. The band's horn driven sound is unique, and the way they approach everything, from writing and arranging to mixing and performing, is totally their own.

An American original; WAR was the first and most successful musical crossover phenomenon that forever fused rock, jazz, Latin, and R&B, while transcending racial and cultural barriers with a multi-ethnic line-up; a musical melting pot and an enduring influence that has sold nearly 50 million records to date. WAR has been honored with 17 gold, platinum or multi-platinum awards which include the triple platinum The World Is A Ghetto, double platinum Why Can't We Be Friends? and Greatest Hits, just to name a few. Today, WAR is a permanent part of America's pop cultural landscape.

Omar Covarrubias aka “The Great Omar” will open the show and dazzle audiences with his engaging stand-up comedy and magic show. Witty and entertaining, Omar’s warmth and charisma puts his crowd at ease, while surpassing expectations as the show unfolds. For more information visit thegreatomar.com
