What is it about Friday, February 15th? NYC Funk-A-Rama!

OK so, somewhere somebody didn't do some homework 'cause the Beacon Theatre has Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings (pictured right) playing at 8pm on Friday, February 15th

Meanwhile Joe's Pub has Free Form Funky Freqs, the new power-funk trio formation comprised of Vernon Reid on guitar, Jamaaladeen Tacuma on bass and G. Calvin Weston on drums (pictured below) playing the same date at 9:30pm.

Admittedly these are quite different funk outfits. But who wants to have to choose one over the other? The world needs more high-quality, diverse types of funk, not less!

more funk,
more funk,
that's what I say!



And if you can get over to the East Village in time you can still have mo' funk, mo' funk!




Here's Sharon Jones & the Dap-King's video for their single 100 Days, 100 Nights:


They look a little staid in that video, so I'd suggest also checking out Ms. Jones fast-stepping and droppin' like it's hot in Cologne, singing, "How Do I Let A Good Man Down":

And another version of the same song, showing why music scholar and producer Jason King recently suggested that Macon, Georgia native Sharon Jones is the heir apparent to the Godfather of Soul. Check the intro from Jones's bandmates, the Dap Kings:



Here's
Free Form Funky Freqs doing their thing in Amsterdam, which evidences a more coolly-cerebral, jazz-funk approach:

All I am going to say is I love Sharon Jones & the Dap-King. I saw the vid 100 Days, 100 Nights
on Youtube some time ago and became an instant fan.
