Tower of Power brings their original "Oakland style" soul music to San Jose along with co-headliners (and one of the greatest bands of all time), WAR. Tower of Power are celebrating more than 40 years of musical success, with a long list of hits, including "You're Still A Young Man," "So Very Hard To Go," "Soul With a Capital S" and many more. Joining them at City National Civic of San Jose (formerly San Jose Civic) are WAR, whose special blend of funk, rock, jazz and R&B has resulted in smash hit songs like "Low Rider" and "Why Can't We Be Friends?" and sales of more than 50 million records worldwide. With appearances everywhere from the videogame Grand Theft Auto San Andreas to the movie Boogie Nights, WAR's music has become a funky thread in the quilt of American pop culture. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Nova Vista Symphony
The Nova Vista Symphony, established in 1966, is composed of more than 60 volunteer musicians of wide age range and ethnic background. The orchestra's fourfold mission is: to make live classical music attractive and accessible to individuals and families at a reasonable price; to expose youngsters to classical music and educate tomorrow's audiences; to provide an opportunity for musicians talented but choosing careers other than music to perform with a top quality orchestra; and to provide a showcase for local soloists and composers.
