Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings


Funk/Soul revivalists Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings enter the Beacon Theater on the wings of last year’s solid Give the People What They Want, an album that consolidated their status as pioneers of the classic soul revival, complete with strong female vocals, a grooving rhythm sections, and vocals strong enough to take you there. Where? Well, to Georgia, home to James Brown and Gladys Knight, a pair of musical touchstones that get at the seductive mix of power and elegance characteristic of both Sharon Jones’s voice and of the Dap Kings’ instrumental backdrops.
