Tower of Power will headline the city of Peoria’s Somos Peoria event.
 
PEORIA, Ariz. (Sept. 10, 2020) – The city of Peoria signed the legendary Tower of Power to headline Somos Peoria next year on Sept. 25, 2021. Somos Peoria is the city’s annual celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month in the heart of Old Town Peoria.

“We are so happy to have Tower of Power for next year’s event in Old Town Peoria,” said Marylou Stephens, Peoria arts and events manager. “Be sure to save the date for Somos Peoria 2021.”

While concerns for the health and safety of Peoria residents during the COVID-19 pandemic kept the city of Peoria from celebrating this year, Somos Peoria will return with a full lineup of activities and entertainment, led by Tower of Power, in 2021. Tower of Power is an American funk, soul, R&B, Latin, jazz band, originating in Oakland, California, that has been performing since 1968. With more than 30 albums and several awards and chart-topping singles, this 10-member band is best known for its talented horn section, and masterful blend of genres. 

“Securing Tower of Power as the headliner for Somos Peoria is just the beginning of a great event,” said Ray Arvizu with Arvizu Advertising.  “We are honored to partner with the City of Peoria to bring the community together to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month.”
More information will be forthcoming on event entertainment and other details.  Mark your calendars and follow us on social media for up-to-the-minute updates on all city events.
