There is no better gift than the gift of sweet music and a chance to boogaloo over the holiday season, so we deliver this gift to you – direct from New York City – Ms Sharon Jones accompanied by 10 of the finest musicians in the world today. Cooler than fashion and both sweeter and harder than all their contemporaries, Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings are without a doubt the world’s greatest, most authentic, most electrifying super soul revue on the circuit. The dynamo out front – Ms Sharon Jones’ voice, never stronger, evokes at once the raw power of Tina Turner, the moaning soulfulness of Mavis Staples, the rhythmic swagger of James Brown, and the melodic command of Aretha Franklin. Steeped in the gilded and gritty sounds of gospel, soul, and funk, the group continues to electrify fans, DJs, critics, record collectors, and bloggers the world over with their heart-felt sound. Their devotion to soul music is clearly demonstrated on the bands’ four critically acclaimed albums, ‘Dap Dippin’ (2002), ‘Naturally’ (2005), ‘100 Days, 100 Nights’ (2007), and ‘I Learned The Hard Way’ (2009). Dig it.
