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

k.d. lang is not only good but she is getting better. Last night was a fabulous night. Everything was perfect. The Mountain Winery has done a makeover that only makes it more beautiful and user friendly.
We want to go back as often as possible and Goldstar really helps
us achieve that.

- “Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there.” --The New York Times
k.d. lang is that rare performer who, over 25 years as a major-label artist, has matured before our very ears. The Western Canada native launched her career with a blend of country-rock stylings and playfully punk-like attitude, by turns whimsical and subversive; back then, she practically put the alternative in alt-country. But from the very beginning, her bravura singing belied her kitschy cowgirl outfits and spiky hair; anyone lucky enough to attend very first appearance in the United States, on a triple bill of unsigned artists at New York City's Bottom Line, could hear that she was marked for greatness.
With Hymns of the 49th Parallel, her 2005 Nonesuch Records debut, lang presented her most compelling set of material by other songwriters—all of them, in this case, fellow Canadians—as well as a gorgeous version of her own "Simple." lang's interpretation of Leonard Cohen's oft-covered "Hallelujah" is understatedly stunning; with good reason, it has become, along with her breathtaking cover of Roy Orbison's "Crying," an in-concert showstopper. Her latest release is 2011's Sing It Loud, an album of new material with her band The Siss Boom Bang. Along the way lang has won four Grammys, eight Juno Awards in Canada, and Canada's highest civilian award, The Order of Canada.
