Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings in Barcelona
I can't stand it! It's all too much EXCITEMENT!!!
after all that exciting reggae stuff i've just told you about - I've just discovered that the incredible SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS are playing Barcelona next month!!! at La Paloma of all places...
If you're not familiar with them, Sharon Jones is one of the greatest contemporary soul, deep-funk, rhythm & blues singers around, with the tightest kick-ass, eight piece band imaginable. Out of NYC, they have two storming albums of old-school funk & soul "Dap-Dippin" and the more recent "Naturally" - which sound as if they come straight out of the Stax / Atlantic back catalogue... but are brand new on the Dap-Tone label. If you want to hear her, gimme a call - I'll come over and slap a CD on your player - you cannot live a full & active life without hearing Sharon Jones...
