The indomitable Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are back… with a new record and a monumental show! For over a decade, the band has traveled the world, blowing minds with their explosive live performances and their raw, hand-crafted studio recordings. Sharon and her band have bypassed the hype-and-hit superhighway and taken a detour straight to the hearts and bodies of their listeners, transcending fleeting trends and demographics and delivering a visceral rhythm and soul sound to an ever-expanding base of deeply loyal fans. After a year of unforeseen challenges and transformations, Sharon and her Dap-Kings triumphantly return to the stage with the release of their highly anticipated Give The People What They Want, delivering every bit of the unbridled soul and studio acumen that defines this bands’ universally loved sound.

No BS! Brass Band is a powerful brass band that embraces the spirit of New Orleans into its original East Coast modern sound. The group has quickly earned a reputation as the premiere band to see for heart-pounding energy and uncontrollable dancing, fearlessly combining elements of James Brown, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin into their fiercely original sound. No BS! Brass has performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, the Festival of New Trumpet Music, and on National Public Radio’s Tiny Desk Concert.

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “unexpected showstoppers,” Lake Street Dive is quickly rising to stardom with their dive bar-esque riffs and 60’s pop-soul vibes. The band is led by young singer Rachel Price, who has been noted by New York Daily News as having “the soulful howl of a young Etta James.” The group comes to New York City with the release of their newest album Bad Self Portraits released in early 2014.
