San Francisco Bay area singer/songwriter Tony Adamo delivers some of his best work to date with his remake of Tower of Power's “Groove Therapy.” “Groove Therapy” is a cut from Adamo's CD Straight Up Deal, and this is a vibrant, earthy track with a definite 70s feel and all the funk you can handle. The horn section features members of the original Tower of Power horn section, and Tony smoothly delivers the “therapy,” musically speaking, that is. The “doctor” is definitely in the house. With crisp music, a nice guitar solo break, and the band at the top of their game, “Groove Therapy” comes together in a style that most can only envy. Adamo seems to have fun with this track with his deep, sultry, and commanding voice, and the expertise from the horn and percussion sections put the song into overdrive

Tony Adamo keeps the soul coming with his new video and song "No Strings Attached" from the album Straight Up Deal. With a tower of power's worth of horns being played by Tower of Power members Skip Mesquite and Mic Gillette (who wrote the horn arrangement), Tony's sound is funkier than ever. The vocal and horn performances on "No Strings Attached" are the strongest yet from Adamo and company. Smooth lyrics make the song even greater as Tony exudes coolness and a special touch that seem to be his signature. Adamo really makes some noise with this track, which is sure to be a crowd pleaser for fans of the Soul and R&B genres.
