Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are the spearheads of a revivalist movement that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music.  Shunning modern digital recording methods in favour of using traditional analog recording equipment, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings are determined to keep the 60’s & 70’s style sound to their new album Give The People What They Want.

After a recent battle with pancreatic cancer, Jones decided to forge ahead and focus on thier music with the band. With their most recent cameo in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, the future of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings is definitely worth getting excited for.

CHRY’s Music Director Ian Gormely recently spoke to Jones about the state of R&B music and her take on the current trajectory on modern her take on the Grammy Nominees.
