Sharon Jones is our Ms. Dynamite Soul. A spark plug with three-octave power, she hits the stage with adrenalized hysteria. And with her backing band, the Dap-Kings, replicating the musical references of the sweet blare of Muscle Shoals horns, the sultriness of Memphis soul and the clean, sophisticated Motown back beat sound, all with spot-on precision, the formula is impressive and unmatchable. Their new album, I Learned The Hard Way, comes out on Tuesday, April 6th, and we will be featuring the Daptone artist throughout the day at Boo Boo Records, playing the new Sharon Jones album fully at noon and 4pm.
And better yet, if you come down and pick-up I Learned The Hard Way on Tuesday, April 6th, you’ll be entered to win a pair of tickets to see Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles on June 26th 2010 at 8pm. We’ll also be giving away a signed LP to second winner.
