History
Except for the real Tower of Power, this is probably the only band in the world that plays extensive repertoire of Tower of Power's Music because horn parts are virtually unavailable anywhere. The band was founded in September 2000 by renowned trumpeter, faculty Wayne Naus as an ensemble class at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. The ensemble members were auditioned among the best musicians in Berklee. The ensemble has played at Berklee Encore Gala, Boston Grammy Award Reception, Boston Fleet Pavilion, and Berklee Performance Center.
