Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings

Grand Opera House

818 N. Market Street Wilmington DE 19801
  • Friday January 28th 2011

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are already well known as one of the most exciting acts in the nation for both their explosive live shows and their prolific output of studio recordings. The band has been hailed for almost singlehandedly stewarding today’s return of soul music to its more traditional sound. Steeped in the gilded and gritty sounds of gospel, soul, and funk, this nine-piece act continues to electrify fans, disc jockeys, critics, record collectors, and bloggers the world over with their heartfelt sound.

As distinguished as their recordings may be, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have become truly renowned thanks to their incredible live show and relentless touring. Although it’s no easy task to keep such a vast ensemble on the road, the band continues to pack hundreds of clubs worldwide, including two consecutive sold out shows at New York’s legendary Apollo Theatre.
