It’s been two years since Naturally opened people’s minds to the wonders of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings.
In that time they’ve toured ceaselessly, with both singer and band being called on by a galaxy of stars wanting to tap into that soulful well that Sharon and the boys have dug. Lou Reed, Robbie Williams, Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Rufus Wainwright, They Might Be Giants and Lily Allen all spring to mind. Not only that but Sharon will be soon taking to the silver screen as a nightclub singer in Denzel Washington’s new movie The Great Debaters. As exciting all of this is, you’ll be relieved to hear that amongst all this Sharon Jones fever they’ve recorded and released the wonderful new album 100 Days, 100 Nights.
As if the availability of pure soul enjoyment on record wasn’t enough!!!! Billions Australia is proud to confirm an extensive tour of Australia in Feb/Mar 2008.
The band first toured Australia in 2006 and immediately confirmed their status as one of the greatest live bands EVER at sold out shows right across the country including best-on-ground performances at the Byron Bay Blues & Roots festival.
This time around they are playing a combination of the finest festivals, special events, theatres and club dates at the back end of our summer. Expect nothing but an explosive soul, funk workout featuring crazy dancin’, super-soul power, mean chops, pure joy, high energy, thrills and spills!!!
Keep puttin’ soul up!
