The acclaimed Sharon Jones documentary Miss Sharon Jones!, which has been a hit at festivals like SXSW, Toronto Film Fest, and DOC NYC, has been acquired by Starz Digital who will give it a U.S. theatrical run, opening July 29, followed by a digital, on-demand and home video release in the fall. The film was directed by Barbara Kopple (Shut Up and Sing, Harlan County, U.S.A) and follows Sharon over the course of an eventful year where she balances a career high with battling cancer.

Of course the stage is really where you should see Sharon, and folks in NYC can do that on Wednesday, June 8 as she and the Dap Kings play the free kickoff show to the 2016 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at Prospect Park bandshell. The gates open at 6:30 PM with the show at 8 PM.

Soon after Sharon and the Dap Kings will be on tour with Hall & Oates and Trombone Shorty. All dates are listed below.
