If, as it's said, there ain't nothing like the real thing, then there ain't too much like Brooklyn's R&B, funk-and-soul powerhouse Sharon Jones and The DAP Kings
. They're an integrated, heated powerhouse of eight, packing a three-piece horn section guided by a rhythm chassis capable of shaking the floor and the asses until the break of dawn. Sharon Jones is the perfect high priestess of high soul gospel: Her heart's been broken, battered and beaten, and she lives to belt about it.
Sharon Jones and The DAP Kings play, appropriately, Kings on Friday, Nov. 12.
