sharon jonesLike the highly acclaimed Naturally LP before it, 100 Days, 100 Nights was recorded in their self-built, self-operated, all analog recording studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn and bares the unmistakable Daptone Soul Sound - highly in demand among music fans and tastemakers alike. In the last year, producers such as Kanye West, Mark Ronson, Randy Jackson, Hank Shocklee, and Kenny Dope have been among those who came knocking at Daptone’s door seeking the inimitable Dap-Kings sound to lend a tougher edge to their productions for such artists as Rhymefest, Lily Allen, Ghostface Killah and Amy Winehouse. Meanwhile, Sharon Jones herself has passed the time between tours by lending her soulful voice to projects for Lou Reed, Rufus Wainwright, They Might Be Giants and others. She was also hand- picked to play a juke-joint singer “Lila� in the forthcoming Denzel Washington film, The Great Debaters.

Some salient facts: 267 Shows, 21 Tours, 14 countries on 3 Continents since the 2005 release of Naturally. Festival appearances including Monterey Jazz, Umbria Jazz, Bumbershoot, Telluride Bluegrass, and the Womad Festivals in the UK and the Canary Islands. Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings’ music has been sampled by Jurasic 5, Gostface Killah, Kanye West and Rhymefest. Appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. National TV Campaign for “I Love NY� featured Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings performing their version of “This Land is your Land�. Sharon Jones has been part of the cast touring with Lou Reed in Australia, Europe, and the US as part of the live production of “Berlin�. Mark Ronson worked closely with the Dap-Kings at Daptone Studios recording his new album “Versions� as well as other re-mix projects including Lily Allen’s hit single “Smile�. Robbie Williams, Al Green, and Boyz II Men all hired the Dap-Kings horns to play on their new albums. The Dap-Kings also worked as in-house bands at the ESPY’s and MTV VMA’s in 2007.

In the end, even after a wonderful few years filled with great new friends, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings is where everyone’s heart is. You will see it live on the road when this band shakes everything you got. And hear it bleed through on 100 Days, 100 Nights.

Don’t miss them LIVE!
