Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Buckwheat Zydeco

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to introduce the star of the show, the super-bad soul sister that’s been to every corner of the land to spread funk like it was butter, a woman that puts 110 percent into everything she does. She’s the Diva of Dance, the Queen of Funk, the one that brought you 100 Days, 100 Nights and I Learned the Hard Way. The one with the magnetic, majestic je ne sais quoi ... And so on. That’s how I’d introduce Sharon Jones on stage. However, that job is already taken by Dap-Kings emcee and guitarist Binky Griptite. “It just gets you goin’. It makes you feel good. I’ll be in the backroom and be like a boxer getting ready to go out and get into the ring,” Jones says of her hype-man’s intro.
