Upcoming gig: Tower of Power

VibeRide's next gig will be Tower of Power at KOKO, London, on the 29th of March. This will be our first time seeing them live and with a bit of luck we'll be able to bring you some great video clips from the performance. We're very excited about seeing this legendary funk-soul act who have been doing it for 40 years! You can also catch them at Ronnie Scott's on the 9th and 10th of March.

Not got tickets yet? Then get them now through KOKO and TicketWeb and have yourself a great night with us!

In the meantime, check out the VibeRide mixes that feature our favourite Tower of Power tracks
