Two great bands of the 70's come together for the "Hot Summer Nights -- Up in Smoke" concert, featuring War, Tower of Power and Cheech and Chong! The legendary multi-platinum band War defined early-70s popular music, fusing together rock, funk, jazz, Latin, R&B and even reggae into a string of hit singles and acclaimed albums.

Tower of Power has been creating their own kind of soul music. Since 1968, Tower of Power has delivered their unique brand of music to their fans, appearing before sold-out crowds as they tour the world each year. Tower's sound can be hard to categorize, but the band's leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as "Urban Soul Music."

Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong had early success with the release of their first feature-length movie, "Up in Smoke" in 1978. The movie became something of a cult classic and was successful enough to warrant a sequel.

Now the comic duo has teamed up for "Hot Summer Nights -- Up in Smoke" a comedy show / concert featuring music by WAR and Tower of Power, as heard in the 1978 feature-length movie, "Up in Smoke."
