This is a rare opportunity for an up-close-and-personal R&B Horn Clinic and demonstration by the funk-soul masters, Tower of Power. For 50 years, Tower of Power’s original members plus their new bandmates have been delivering their own brand of funky rhythms and driving grooves to fans around the world. Their soaring horn section is emblematic of their signature sound. This clinic is designed for music students, music instructors, people interested in music, and fans of Tower of Power.
The Horn Clinic leader is Emilio Castillo (tenor sax). He will be joined by band members Doc Kupka (baritone sax), Tom Politzer (lead tenor sax), and trumpet players Sal Cracchiolo and Adolfo Acosta.
Tower of Power’s horn section will discuss their music, play some of their signature licks, talk about their musical backgrounds, and how they came to be in the band. After they perform examples of Tower of Power music, the audience can participate in a Q & A session, followed by autographs.
This event is sponsored by Fox Presents, Spokane Falls Community College and Yamaha.
