Sunday Free Show: Sharon Jones at Summerstage

Sunday is the final show of the 2008 Summerstage season. Wrapping up this twenty-third season of music are bands associated with Daptone Records, bearer of the torch of classic R&B. For the friendly price of nothing, you’re getting three Brooklyn based soul and funk bands, headlined by Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings.

The show starts at three with Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens.

Next up, is the Menaham Street Band made up of members of the Dap-Kings, Antibalas and The Budos Band. All of these bands can lay down a serious groove, so this should be a good one.

Finally, closing out the day, and the summer, is Ms. Sharon Jones. After tearing up festivals across the nation, I expect her to be in top form for the hometown crowd.

It is going to be a beautiful day on Sunday. I’ll be there, representing LMB. If you’re going let us know.

Photos to follow, of course.
