Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings are a Brooklyn based rhythm and blues group that performs original songs in a style that evokes soul classics of the late 1960s and early '70s, but nevertheless sounds fresh. The clip above, "100 Days, 100 Nights" (courtesy of Daptone Records, the group's private label) is the title song from their album released on October 2, 2007. Their first album, Dap-Dappin' with Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, was released in May of 2002. You can hear the title song of their latest album, I Learned the Hard Way, released in April, on their website.
