Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings brought the Daptone Super Soul Review show to the Beacon Theater last night. Playing to a sold out hometown crowd, the 50-something Jones and her amazing band, the Dap Kings, tore through a funk'd out, soul'd up two hour set of some of their best songs. Truly amazed by how passionate Jones' singing and dancing is on stage....overall, a great show.
The band is on Letterman on Monday then head out on a European tour.
