Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings

I don't necessarily listen to this kind of music all the time but when you see a funk and soul band live, it's always a party. That's what it was last night at the Sound Academy. At the last hour, a friend and me picked up some tickets to catch SJDK. Sharon Jones (read this portrait from the New Yorker) is a genuine white hot grease fire of pure entertainment, and the Dap kings are one tight, tight outfit. I've never seen any of those famous bands like George Clinton, James Brown or The Band so I'll have to settle for the endlessly entertaining and highly professional Dap Kings.
