LARRY BRAGGS - lead vocals.

Larry has established a mighty reputation since 2000 as lead vocalist for Tower of Power. Emilio Castillo describes him as ‘the best singer we’ve had since the 70s.’ His flair, soul, and showmanship – not to mention his three-octave range, from pure soul silk to husky wail – make him a superb front man. His influences, from James Brown to Charlie Wilson and Al Green, give CTA songs a soulful, funky edge. As Danny Seraphine said to Larry, “Everything gets funkier when a brother sings.” For Larry, the opportunity to sing with CTA is a further broadening of his experience into rock/funk. Larry describes the new CTA band as ‘Chicago on steroids.’
