Tour name: Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
DHP presents the internationally acclaimed, gospel-infused soul and classic funk of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings at Band on the Wall, Manchester.
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have come a long way since their humble beginnings nearly a decade ago. Steeped within the gilded and gritty sounds of gospel, soul and funk, this nine-piece Brooklyn collective has continued to electrify fans, disc jockeys, critics, record collectors, and bloggers the world-over with their authentic, heart-felt sound. The band’s three critically-acclaimed albums – Dap Dippin’, Naturally and 100 Days, 100 Nights – recall an analog era led by iconic studios like those at Motown and Stax Records.
As distinguished as their recordings may be however, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have truly become renowned thanks to their incredible live show, not to mention their relentless touring. And though it’s certainly no easy task to keep such a vast ensemble on the road, the band continues to pack hundreds of clubs worldwide, from legendary venues like New York’s Apollo Theater, Beacon Theater and Central Park’s SummerStage to their show-stopping sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Roskilde, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and WOMAD. AGMP and DHP are now delighted to present this great band in the perfect setting of Manchester's legendary Band on the Wall.
This concert will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open earlier for delicious food and drinks.
