Happy Inauguration Day - Celebrate with Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings

The world needs more soul music and Sharon Jones brings it. The Dap-Kings were last seen backing Amy Winehouse while she struggled with lyrics and slugged an audience member. I suspect working with Sharon Jones is a much more enriching experience all around. Happy Inauguration Day.

100 Days, 100 Nights

Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) - I didn't think the original by Kenny Rogers & First Edition could be improved upon. I was wrong.

It's a Man's Man's Man's World

- MySpace
- Wiki
- Sharon Jones interview and in-store show at Amoeba Records in Hollywood - The Dap-Kings are amazing
- Sharon Jones - consummate entertainer
- The Inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden (I like the sound of that)

saw SJ & the Dap Kings at Coachella last year. Fantastic.

The vintage recording studio/house studio they set up in Brooklyn is awesome. It is what i wish the old Kingtone studio set up w/ vintage gear in berkeley in 1999 was. there were good moments, but never a house band like the DK's...
