Photo Gallery of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, The Heavy @ House of Blues, Boston (Thursday, May 27, 2010).
It's not hard to see how Sharon Jones and her Dap-Kings are growing in popularity, and their draw was graphically spelled out as they sold out a club four times the size of the last venue they played in Boston. Part '60s soul revue, part growling blues pedigree, part learnings of the Stax/Volt way of life and in all ways entertaining, Jones is the prime vehicle to propel the ultra-tight music of the band to new levels. She took the opportunity to share the joy of the stage by inviting people onto it no less than three times, but the real power was displayed when she was prowling from edge to edge, in sole control of the song and the message.
