In the music industry, artists can come and go without you ever learning more than two songs on their album. However, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, an American funk/soul band, have continued to steadily grow in popularity, sell out huge theatres and headline festivals. How? It’s simple. They are a great band that makes great music. For decades, they have been travelling around the world, surprising audiences with their crude recordings and gracing fans with their explosive live shows. No other band today seems to match the Dap-Kings’ rhythm, feeling or monumental power. No other singer can duplicate the energy and honest soul of Sharon Jones. Together they spearhead the revivalist movement that aims to capture and uphold the essence of funk/soul music as it was at its height in the mid-sixties to mid-seventies. Part of their efforts to achieve this is to shun modern digital recording methods in favour of traditional analog equipment. The veteran soulwoman, Sharon Jones, has also consistently made it a point to avoid fleeting fads and always hit you right in the heart with her visceral sound. After all these years, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have never lost sight of their objective: to bring music directly to the people who need it.
