Sharon Jones Takes a Prisoner

If you don’t know Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, you’re missing out. The Augusta, Georgia–native and her crew have played with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Michael Bublé (with whom they appeared on SNL this year) and Phish, and have collaborated on projects with Mark Ronson. They’re a little bit funk, a little bit gospel and their music is the perfect blend of southern soul and New York grit. Last week, the group performed at the NPR Showcase at South by Southwest in Austin, and as this video shows, the crowd got really involved.
