The Baddest Soul Sister Around! Funky Dynamic Soul Energy!

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are a funk/soul band. They are signed to Daptone Records, where the Dap-Kings are the house band. They are widely thought to be spearheads of a revivalist movement that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music as it was at its height in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. Part of the way this is achieved is to shun modern digital recording methods in favour of using traditional analogue recording equipment. The type of instruments used by the band may also be considered limited to those that would have been available up until the mid seventies.

As the top featured act in the Daptone Funk & Soul Revue, Sharon Jones has earned a reputation as the Baddest Soul Sister on the circuit, electrifying audiences from coast to coast with her Funky Dynamic Soul Energy. I mean she comes on Strong and Funky!

Have a Merry Soulful Christmas with Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings!

"When Sharon Jones was a little girl, she used to wonder how Santa could pile toys under her tree when there 'ain't no chimneys in the projects.' Now, the soul singer has turned her lament into a sensational seasonal song of the same name. The musical setting borrows from the James Brown playbook: dynamic drumming, blasting horns, a minor-key swirl of strings. But unlike Brown's man-first music, Jones' saga is all about the strength and resourcefulness of African-American women...Jones' mother restores her faith with the tale of a chimney that appears after the child falls asleep, and along the way, Mom takes her place as the song's true hero. Jones soon turns her rueful declaration into a sort of celebration: 'There ain't no chimneys — ho, ho, ho, ho, no, no, no — in the projects!' Because, ultimately, Santa Claus and chimneys are irrelevant when compared to another Christmas benefactor. 'Mama,' Jones sings, 'you are the one.'" - Marc Silver, NPR
