PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

To celebrate the 50th Year of Tower of Power, the Top Avengers have decided to put together a 6 piece horn section playing the music of Tower of Power. With many of their members working as session musicians in London and the South East and performing with a diverse mix of artists nationally and worldwide, The Top Avengers are an incredible band who faithfully capture the sound of Tower of Power. 

The band includes many members of the London jazz and funk scene who have played Ronnie Scott's, the 606 club, the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, The Barbican and Glastonbury festival just to name a few. Many of the members currently write for major recording artists and decided to take that level of professionalism to this project. They spent a few months finding the right players to join the group and who also had a passion for replicating the sound of Tower of Power. The band members have performed with such diverse artists as current major vocalist Raye to Graeme Clark (wetwetwet), Tony Christie, Pee Wee Ellis, Marcella Detroit and Liberty X just to name a few.
