SHARON JONES was born and raised in James Brown's hometown of Augusta, Georgia. Like many great soul singers, including James himself and Aretha, Sharon began singing in church at a very young age. With her natural sense of showmanship, her talent soon brought her beyond the Sunday choir straight to center stage as the lead singer of more than one up-and-coming Funk band. It wasn't long before she was being booked to perform with the top names in Soul, including the Four Tops, Peaches and Herb, The Drifters, and Maceo Parker. During these years she quickly developed a mastery of her stage presence, learning how to use her smoky sweet voice to captivate audiences and bring them to the dance floor. It is this knack for working the crowd that has kept Sharon in demand with every kind of dance band.

THE DAP-KINGS are the house band for Daptone Records, where today's hottest Funk and Soul is laid to tape. They are presently the worlds mightiest Live Funk and Soul Revue, unique in their ability to deliver the kind of Soul Excitement that hasn't been felt since Mr. Brown himself graced the stage of the Apollo in 1969. The Dap-Kings are made up of musicians from The Soul Providers and The Mighty Imperials, both of which gained recognition for laying the music behind Desco Records' legendary catalog of funk 45's and LP's. Though their recordings are unmatched for their hardness and sheer ability to make people dance, their live show is what makes them a phenomenon.

When the Dap-Kings take to the stage with their dance steps and matching soul suits, it is as if someone lit the fuse on a keg of Soul Dynamite! The show commences with a dose of hard instrumentals which never fail to get the crowd moving like only deep hard funk can. Then when things seem like they can go no higher, the Dap-Kings bring their blazing vocalists to the stage. Backed by the tightest, roughest funk band on the scene, vocalists like Sharon Jones, Lee Fields, Joseph Henry, and Naomi Davis escort crowds to new and uncharted levels of Get-Down and Dance.
