This coming August, Tower of Power will celebrate 43 years as a band. Currently standing at ten members, the Bay Area-based group includes four of the founders: Emilio Castillo, Rocco Prestia, Stephen Kupka and David Garibaldi. Tower of Power is known for its tight horn section. Actually, tight doesnt quite cover it its more like incredibly precise and lightning fast. Credited with being one of the groups that defined the San Francisco sound, Tower of Power has a spectacular not-to-be-missed stage show. Theres nowhere else jazz fans should be today. 8 p.m. House of Blues, 1204 Caroline. For information, call 888-402-5837 or visit www.houseofblues.com. $16.50 to $39.50.
