Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings...

Last Friday night Darren, Stuart and I sent to see Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings perform at the Roundhouse in London's glitzy Chalk Farm.

Harking back to the good old days when soul and funk was at it's height in the late 1960s to mid-1970s Ms Jones was in fine fettle. Her voice was beautiful and we were treated to a mix of material old and new.

Her infectious blend of soul and funk music had us all singing, dancing and jigging about. Who else could get a sold-out crowd of Camden hipsters to do the funky chicken, spin around on their heels and scream like James Brown?

The Dap-Kings were as polished as ever and everyone was smiling like Cheshire cats at the feel-good sound.

The lady had soul. The band had heart. The crowd went wild.
