SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS ANNOUNCE MIDWEST TOUR DATES
KICK OFF SOUTHEST US RUN MARCH 10, 2011

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are pleased to announce additional US tour dates this spring, with Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears as support. The band will kick off their previously announced run of Southeast dates this Thursday, March 10 in Knoxville and will tour Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, and the Carolinas throughout March. After a short break, the band will get back on the road and hit the Midwest with stops in Pontiac MI, Madison WI, Minneapolis, and Fargo ND.

Sharon and the guys have hardly stopped touring since releasing I Learned The Hard Way in April of 2010 via Daptone Records. Read what people have been saying about their live show:

“Jones and her ace backing band, the Dap-Kings, attack soul and R&B head-on, delivering a hip-swiveling, pulse-quickening, grin-inducing good time.” – Dallas Morning News

“The tragedy of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings: Only once can you see them for the first time…it’s an overwhelming, emotional thing seeing Jones in person.” – Riverfront Times

“When the emcee of Sharon Jones’ band introduced her as “the super soul sister” at Phoenix’s Orpheum Theatre, there was not an iota of exaggeration involved.” – Arizona Star

“I’d like to play the part of an objective journalist here, but I’m not sure it’s possible when one’s mind has been blown to pieces and melted into a pile of goo on the floor of the evening’s venue.” – Oregonian

“I am hard-pressed to find anything negative to say about this lady.” – Kansas City Pitch
