Tower of Power was back in New York City on Friday where the 10-piece, horn-filled band filled Brooklyn Bowl with its infectious tones of soulful funk music for their first of two shows at the Brooklyn concert venue this weekend.

Throughout their 90-minute Friday night set, the band literally filled the Brooklyn Bowl stage with an array of horns and microphones that could only be rivaled by a small chamber orchestra. Members traded off lead lines and powerful grooves as the audience quickly loosened up thanks to the vibrant mix of high-tempo funk from their 50-year catalog.

From the show’s opening notes, singer Marcus Scott effortlessly harnessed the band’s brass-fueled energy with the rich tones of his own vocal instrument as he guided the very active dance floor through renditions of “You Ought to be Having Fun”, “Get Yo’ Feet Back On The Ground”, “Stop”, “Soul With A Capital ‘S'”, and “You’re Still A Young Man”, to name a few. Bands with more than two or three horn players can sometimes come off sounding quite sharp on the ears, but Tower Of Power proved once again that even the most intense of instrument tones can be served with a soft side when balanced out with equally-strong contributions from bass (courtesy of Marc WV) and guitar (from Jerry Cortez).
