Soul Vaccination - Celebrating 50 years of Tower of Power

Since 1968, Tower of Power has delivered their unique brand of music to their fans, appearing before sold out crowds as they tour the world each year. Tower’s sound can be hard to categorize, but the band's leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as "Urban Soul Music."


"Soul Vaccination" is a funk big band that plays the music of T.O.P. A powerhouse of Jazz and soul musicians from the UK, Soul vaccination will "funk the dumb stuff" and "Give you the Proof" you need to make you "Souled out". So if you're "Still a young man" and "Diggin on James Brown", you know "What is Hip?". Come and sing along to the hits or just get "on the serious side". A fiftieth birthday party not to miss. 

The London Bass Guitar Show is a two-day event dedicated to all things bass. Held at the prestigious Olympia London, you will find three stages and loads of bass gear to try out. On the main stage, watch your idols perform up close and personal, giving you the chance to see them play front and centre.
