Jones waltzed through her catalog with tight vocal technique, annunciation and grit on her fast paced jams and sweet flow on her ballads. She covered Gladys Knight and humorously imitated Tina Turner. Jones had it all - humor, personality, moves, energy and incredible talent. - The Examiner
Modern soul purveyors Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings played a triumphant set last week, closing out the first night of the Lowdown Hudson Blues Festival at Brookfield Place Waterfront Plaza in downtown Manhattan. The crowd was eating it up, and she even brought up a couple audience members to dance onstage. We've got pictures of the show -- including opening sets from the No BS Brass Band and Lake Street Dive -- in this post.

Meanwhile, Jones's label Daptone has a bunch of stuff going on these days. NYC funk chameleons The Budos Band are prepping a new album called Burnt Offering, out 10/21, and have have just released a single called "The Sticks," which supposedly takes its inspiration from Black Sabbath and Pentagram, which strange as it may sound is a pretty good look for them. Budos Band have a tour coming up and they'll play in NYC at The Wick on October 25. tickets are available now. All dates are listed below.

Labelmate Naomi Shelton also has a new release on the way, with Cold World coming out on July 29. She'll also be playing that free Rough Trade show we told you about on the day the album drops. All dates are listed below.

Finally, Charles Bradley, another Daptone artist, has a new single out with LaRose Jackson that's exclusive to 7". Its called "Luv Jones" and it can be previewed below and ordered here. Bradley will be on tour for much of the rest of this year, including a couple NYC shows that we've already mentioned -- a free Llincoln Center Out of Doors show on 8/10 and a Beacon Theatre show in October with the Afghan Whigs. Check out the full list of Bradley dates below.

More pictures from Night 1 of the Lowdown Hudson Blues Fest, as well as streams for the new Budos Band song, the Charles Bradley preview, and upcoming dates for Budos Band, Naomi Shelton, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and Charles Bradley, below...
