They helped revive the career of the group Tower of Power when they brought them on tour after the Sports
album hit it big. As Emilio Castillo of Tower of Power
told us, Lewis is a huge fan of the group, and wanted their famous horn section to tour with his band. Emilio agreed, but asked that Huey do what he can to promote Tower of Power, who didn't have a record deal at the time. Lewis delivered, promoting ToP from the stage and in interviews. In some cities, Tower of Power would play "Midnight Shows" at local clubs after performing with Lewis, and at every turn Lewis would not only tell the crowd about the show, but he and the News would show up and jam, ensuring a packed house and great publicity for Tower of Power.
