Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings Valentine's at Nokia Theater

I've been interested in the music of Sharon Jones and the Daptone family for some time, but this was my first chance to really get out and make some pictures (at the well-run but airport-like Nokia Theater). Sharon and the Dap Kings' 1st album dropped in 2002 and since then the Daptone Folks have been working their butts off in their mission to save the world with Real Soul Music. I say more power to them.

There is an extended gallery here. see below for highlights...

Naomi Shelton - High Gospel Queen

Binky Griptite sets the tone

Sharon Jones on the scene

I thought the shiny lettering was a nice touch.
