Established in 2002, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings brings together powerful jazz vocalist Jones and the soulful funk music of the Dap-Kings, a group formed by former members of famous 80s’ soul ensembles Soul Providers and the Mighty Imperials. Their devotion to soul music is clearly demonstrated on the band’s multiple critically acclaimed albums, including their newest release “I Learned the Hard Way.” They also drew attention with “This Land is Your Land”, a song they covered for the soundtrack of the Academy Award and Golden Globe winning film “Up in the Air.”
