Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings

“This past Saturday night it was a trip to the Apollo Theater on 125th Street in Harlem. The act was Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. After three albums and 10 years they are an overnight sensation. For the obvious reasons seeing this show at the Apollo was completely appropriate.

Let me just say that if you have not caught this act put it on your bucket list. Sharon Jones is a combination of the great funk-soul singers of years gone by. Names like Mavis Staples, James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner come to mind.

Sharon and the 18 piece band put on a fabulous show. Everyone in that band are top level A team players. Sharon and the Kings do a soulful version of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land’ which had the entire audience up and dancing – rocking the Apollo….”

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings played two shows at the Apollo last weekend. The review above is from Saturday (5/1). If you missed them and still need to knock Sharon off your bucket list, your next NYC chance is in Prospect Park this summer. More pictures from the Friday Apollo show (4/30), video from Fallon (4/28), and Letterman (5/5) (already posted Colbert), below…
