Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have truly become renowned thanks to their incredible live show, not to mention their relentless touring. And though it’s certainly no easy task to keep such a vast ensemble on the road, the band continues to pack hundreds of clubs worldwide, from legendary venues like New York’s Apollo Theater, Beacon Theater and Central Park’s SummerStage to their show-stopping sets at Coachella, SXSW, Lollapalooza, Roskilde, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and WOMAD.

Currently supporting their fourth album, I Learned the Hard Way, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings continue to electrify fans, disc jockeys, critics, record collectors, and bloggers the world-over with their authentic, heart-felt sound. The authenticity clearly demonstrated on the band’s three critically-acclaimed previous albums steeped within the gilded and gritty sounds of gospel, soul and funk – Dap Dippin’ (2002), Naturally (2005) and 100 Days, 100 Nights (2007) – captured and released by the independent Daptone Records. Their albums recall an analog era led by iconic studios like those at Motown and Stax Records, and have thrust the 53 year-old Augusta, GA native and crew into the multimedia limelight.
