Saturday, Aug 7: Sharon Jones and the Daptones @ Celebrate Brooklyn

Daptone Revue: Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
with Budos Band and more!
Saturday, August 7, 7pm
Gates open at 6pm

"The Bushwick label Daptone Records, long committed to bringing you the finest soul, funk, gospel and afrobeat sounds to be found on analog tape, trots out the family. With the unstoppable Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings headlining. Backed by the Bushwick Phil, which started as a growing string section that recorded on all of the SJDK albums and was only a Duo on ‘Dap-Dippin’, a Trio on ‘Naturally’, a Quartet on ‘100 Days’ and a Sextet on ‘I Learned the Hard Way’. For this epochal moment in the great Brooklyn soul revival, the line-up will expand to include Timpani, Vibes, the String Quartet and Victor Axelrod (Ticklah, Antibalas) on Piano."
