Music: Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings

By Steve Rosen · May 10th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings play the Southgate House Monday and also headline the Nelsonville Music Festival (at Hocking College in southeast Ohio) on Saturday night. The nine-piece band, complete with horn section, is touring in support of their fourth album, the new I Learned the Hard Way. Their last album (2007’s 100 Days, 100 Nights) has sold more than 150,000 copies, an astonishing amount for an indie band with an updated retro sound whose records are issued by their own independently distributed label.

Get show details, tickets and read Steven Rosen's interview with Gabriel Roth — co-owner of Daptone Records and creator, songwriter, arranger and bassist (under the name Bosco Mann) for the increasingly successful retro-Soul/Funk band Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings — here.

Show starts at 9 p.m.
