“Wow…just wow. I don’t know why it took me so long to experience the stunning Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, but lawdy, I’m sure glad I went to the concert that closed out a great summer of Celebrate Brooklyn! at the Prospect Park Bandshell and finally got to witness the phenomenon that she is. Sharon Jones blew my mind with her energy, singing, dancing — you name it, she was a solid gold MVP, James Brown heir-apparent. For 2+ hours, she and her stellar bandmates (including members of the Bushwick Philharmonic) kept the [very large] crowd on their feet, grooving along to a wonderful retro-soul/funk sound that did not let up. She was also assisted on a few songs by the charming Lee Fields.” [Qbertplaya]

If there’s one show I regret missing by going out of town this past weekend, it was definitely the Daptone one in Prospect Park. More pictures and videos from Sharon Jones‘s Saturday night free Celebrate Brooklyn show (The Budos Band opened up the night), below…
