Introducing Ms. Sharon Jones

Ms. Sharon Jones who some Phish fans may have heard of for her funky back up vocals during the "Halloween Set" performance of the Rolling Stone's Exile on Main Street, this year at Festival 8. But to those who aren't as familiar she is the singer of the soul funk band Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. And if they had it their way they would be in the front of the revivalist movement that is trying to bring back the feeling of funk and soul music from its hay days back in the 1960s.

To me Sharon is everything I loved about old soul music. Her voice is pure, loud and soulful. Her control is amazing. Check out the video below of the song "100 Days 100 Nights" it will blow you away!
