Tower of Power to perform March 18 at CAC

Tower of Power, among music’s most dynamic and distinctive acts for more than 50 years, roars into a new decade with a March 18 performance at the Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport. Since its formation in Oakland, California, in 1968, through two dozen albums, Tower of Power has forged a reputation as a crack band of high-achieving musicians fluent in all realms of soul, rock and pop music … with a sophistication and punch like that of Big Band jazz.

From its first release in 1970, “East Bay Grease” on impresario Bill Graham’s San Francisco Records label, the band was a pillar of The Bay Area music scene that included like-minded pioneers Sly & The Family Stone, Cold Blood, Graham Central Station, The Pointer Sisters and The Sons of Champlin, plus such rock-oriented outfits as Santana, Betty Davis and Journey.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are available online, on the CACLive! app, by phone at 570-326-2424 or at the box office. The Arts Center, a wholly owned subsidiary of Penn College, is at 220 W. Fourth St. (just a few blocks from campus).
