The Georgia Straight will be presenting the sizzling soul-funk band Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings at Malkin Bowl on May 27.
The sultry New Yorker met Dap-Kings bandleader and Daptone label head Gabe Roth in 1996, and between 2002 and 2007 the band released three albums. As one Georgia Straight music contributor said, "each one staking ever more convincing territory between ’60s soul and ’70s funk". They will be playing tunes from their latest release, I Learned the Hard Way.
Ms. Jones herself took some time to invite Vancouverites out for the show with this special YouTube announcement this morning
