Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings

(USA)  Funk, Soul/Gospel

"You've got to feel it," is the first thing that comes from the mouth of seasoned soul singer Sharon Jones when asked what makes great music. "You've got to feeel it! In your bones, your heart, in everything and everywhere! and if you've ever been to a Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings show, you know you can't but help feel their music. From the rumble and grumble of thick funk jerking you to the dancefloor to the soaring soul guaranteed to make you sigh, one thing is for sure: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings are legitimate heavy-hitters.

The Dap-Kings are the backing band for Sharon Jones, as well as the mighty house-band of Daptone records, today's premier source of real Funk & Soul. Led by bassist and producer Bosco Mann, the dapper eight-piece Dap-Kings--horns, guitars, congas and drum kit--always lay down a gritty groove. From meaty breakbeats and jams that echo the best of the JBs to beautiful ballads that would make Aretha smile, the veteran Dap-Kings know how to sweat and deliver. DJs, hip-hop producers and thousands of fans worldwide have taken notice. Give a listen. So will you.
