dap-o-rama

Has everyone already heard of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings? because I can't believe I'm just discovering these guys...





Their label is daptone records. On this page you can download a 58 minute program...Binky Griptites-ghettofunkpowerhour.

Also listen to the Budos Band on their label--Fela meets high school marching band, in a good way.

Check out Genuine by them. I first heard them played by the DJ Keb Darge, and just assumed they were from the same time as the rest of the stuff he played. The Dap-Kings are also famous now for playing the horns in Mark Ronson productions.
Love the dancing in that second video, wish I could dance like that.

Ha ha, they missed a trick letting Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson steal their schtick wholesale - hope they got points on Back In Black...
