Festival Events:

Featured headliner 2013:
  • Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, marked history with the release of their fourth album, I Learned the Hard Way, which climbed the 2010 Billboard charts hitting at #2 for Independent albums and #6 for R&B;/Hip-Hop albums. The record also sold 100,000 copies in the first four months after its release date.
    • As a child, Sharon Jones and her brothers would imitate the songs and dances of James Brown, who shared their hometown. Like many rhythm and blues entertainers, she began performing in church at a very young age where her voice would find a lifelong home and inspiration. In her late teens she branched out into talent shows and played with local funk groups, wedding bands, and a handful of day jobs which included stints as both a prison guard at New York’s notorious Riker’s Island, and an armored car guard for Wells Fargo Bank. Her command of the stage earned her an overnight title as the ‘Queen of Funk’. Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings formed in 2001 and have since toured extensively and have built steadily upon a growing reputation as the unrivaled frontrunners of old-school Soul and Funk music. SJ &TDK; latest release, 100 Days, 100 Nights, is arguably their greatest achievement to date. With much more extensive songwriting and arranging contributions from the members of the band, the songs take more distinct and well-crafted forms, enabling a deeper more soulful return to traditional Rhythm and Blues roots. However, it is the raw fire and Soul which Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings consistently pour into their music that will make this record an irreplaceable part of many people’s lives.
