The show marks the return of one of music’s most indefatigable performers. On stage, Jones is in constant motion, moving with the band, dancing with members of the audience, and filling the room her huge, brassy style. For over a decade the band has worked its magic with a throwback R&B sound so successfully revived by Daptone Records and other artists including Charles Bradley.
Last summer, Jones announced she would be treated for pancreatic cancer, and would have to postpone the release of her new record and cancel a planned fall tour. Now fully recovered, she released Give the People What They Want in January, and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are currently on a national tour.
