Ticket competition: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

Our friends at Choice Cuts are once again bringing the reigning Queen of Funk Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings to our shores on Saturday, November 7th. Tickets are priced at €25, available from Ticketmaster and Tickets.ie.

Sharon’s raw power, rhythmic swagger, moaning soulfulness, and melodic command set her firmly alongside Tina Turner, James Brown, Mavis Staples, and Aretha as a fixture in the canon of soul music. From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in “The Game Gets Old” at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style “Mama Don’t Like My Man” at the tail, the Dap-Kings dance seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline.

People are still talking about their last appearance in The Button Factory. We have two pairs of tickets for the upcoming Tripod show. Simply tell us the name of the 4th Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings LP?
