A Best of 2010 Album Selection, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have become renowned mostly thanks to their incredible live show, not to mention their relentless touring. (Ten-plus years now of live performances have won over true believers the world over.) And though it’s certainly no easy task to keep such a vast ensemble on the road, the band continues to pack hundreds of clubs worldwide, from legendary venues like New York’s Apollo Theater, Beacon Theater and Central Park’s SummerStage to their show-stopping sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, SxSW, Newport Folk, Roskilde, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and WOMAD. Fans everywhere have seen the goods up on the stage ... and these goods are just insane.
