Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings 

Over the years Daptone records have provided the world with an indomitable stream of funk and soul that has often grounded its roots in a revivalist mindset intent on reliving the 1960s and 70s heydays of these genres. 

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings are the flagship of this ethos and are back in the alley with a mammoth, soul-strewn album Give The People What They Want. 

Those who are unfamiliar with Sharon Jones and her ageless classic southern soul persuasion are in for a concert that could easily end up being one of the best of the year. 

For routine aficionados, Give the People What They Want is a work that reverberates with new energetic influences that cement Sharon Jones and The Dap King’s status as established gentry in the spectrum of soul and R & B. 

The very same album also represents the struggle with pancreatic cancer that lead singer Jones has been through, a duel that led to the postponement of the initially planned album release and tour, which should have taken place a year or so ago.  

Back in full force and nourished from the affection of fans, family and friends the world over, Jone’s and her troupe will surely bring a new lease of life to a Copenhagen audience looking to banish the traumas of the cold, dark winter to mere memory.
