Sharon Jones is a national treasure. There's simply no other way of putting it. Please just do yourself a favor and go buy one of her albums (any will do; they're all excellent). You'll thank me. Or you could do yourself an even bigger favor by going to see her live if she comes to a town near you. Jones, who recently "kicked cancer's ass" (GO GIRL!), along with her Dap-Kings (an ultra-talented bunch in their own rights), played one of my favorite shows of 2014 a couple weeks ago at The Vic. It was all heart and pure soul. To see more of my images from the night, head over to Do312.
The Dap-Kings warmed up the crowd...
Sharon Jones' backup singers, Saun and Starr, recently released their first single. They were excellent and sang a few songs before Sharon hit the stage.
The one and only Sharon Jones!
