Nov 24 Monday Ticket Giveaway- Soul Excitement

From church choir to the face of soul and funk revitalization, Sharon Jones’ retro sound is pure soul that seduces the audience to let go of their inhibitions.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have built a growing reputation as the front runners of old-school soul and funk.

Show up for the music, but stay for the stage show. Sharon’s youthful energy and occasional dancing frenzies exude passion while the horn section grooves.

Think the Dap-Kings look or sound familiar?  That’s because some of the members backed up Amy Winehouse on her album “Back to Black”, check them out in her video “Rehab.”

Come to the Barrymore December 3 prepared to dance!  Get two tickets for the funk filled evening by telling us what your favorite funk/soul song to listen to in a recession is. Comment on this blog with your entry to have a chance to win a FREE pair of tickets to the Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings show.

Answers will be judged by the staff at True Endeavors- the winner will be announced Tuesday (November 25) at 6pm.

  1. Fave funk/soul tune for a recession? Probably the Professor Longhair / Meters version of “Everyday I Have the Blues” – the perfect blend of “woe is me” and a big dose of “get-up and swing it”… awesome!

  2. its hard to choose…

    id have to go with either:

    you dropped a bomb on me -gap band

    or

    sign o’ the times – prince

  3. The show is Wed Dec 3, not Dec 5.

    Somebody Loan Me A Dime by Boz Scaggs, more blues than soul or funk.

  4. Don’t Stop the Music – Yarbough & Peoples
    A little Funk, a little Disco, fun for everyone.

  5. Congrats Steve Neary! Your response of “sign o’ the times” by prince was picked as our favorite response! Your name +1 will be on the guest list for Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings December 3!
