Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

“First, I feel kind of angry about it,” she said, but then added, “Well, if it took Amy to get the Dap-Kings heard, then it’s a good thing. I say it’s great. Thank you.” [says Sharon Jones to the NY Times]

Performing a blazing rendition of "Keep On Lookin" from the new album "100 Days, 100 Nights" at their record release party in NYC's Union Square Virgin Mega-Store.
