Show Details

Off The Leash is an 11-piece excitement machine, dedicated to performing the r&b/funk/soul classics of the renowned Oakland-based band, Tower Of Power.

Formed in 1968, Tower Of Power soon made an impact with their distinctive sound and repertoire. Among their hits: 'What Is Hip?', 'You’re Still A Young Man' and 'This Time It’s Real'. Tower Of Power has always been about the blend of convincing vocals, a driving groove, and horn section riffs that threaten to lift the ceiling.

Replicating such a precise yet powerful sound is not a challenge to be taken lightly. Off The Leash includes musicians who have worked in diverse bands like Reverend Funk, Big & Horny, Funk Fiction, Los Cabrones and Pickpocket. They have done their homework on the Tower Of Power repertoire, and can’t wait to share the results. Are they ready to deliver? They’re off the leash!

Paul McVicar (vocals), Paul Slattery (vocals), Dave Carter (keyboards), Craig Strain (bass), Matthi Edwards (drums), Neil Boland (guitar, vocals), Steve Allan (trumpet), Matt Tubman (trumpet), Alex Howroyd (tenor sax), Andy O’Connell (tenor sax), Brett Evans (baritone sax).
