Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. I’ll probably be talking about these kids a lot in this blog. Singlehandedly bringing back the old Funk/Retro soul genre, Sharon’s voice is a real force to be reckoned with… and this is the same band responsible for bring you Amy Winehouse’s “Back in Black.” Yes, that sound you heard? All Dap Kings, all the time. The two of them together… they are frankly unstoppable.
A few years ago, I was so lucky to have some sit down time with Auntie Sharon (thats what she told me to call her. Ima go with it) and her band… and get some great video footage of them live at Amoeba Records. Until I can give them the superblog they deserve… I’ll put this up for you to enjoy.
