Tower Of Power, Dennis Lambert with Kalapana Live In Manila

The much-awaited Manila performance of Tower Of Power is finally happening September 7, 2018 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum to be mounted by Ovation Productions. The triple bill event also features Dennis Lambert and Kalapana . Tower's musical odyssey actually began in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen "Doc" Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilio's house, Emilio's father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: "Hire that guy, he's got something."

Essilor, the inventor of progressive lenses, presents the Varilux® X series TM , designed to reinvent near vision by extending it further within arm’s reach. “With the launch of the Varilux® X series TM , 40-year-olds and above no longer have to worry about vision problems.
