Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings Videos
In one of the grooviest holiday albums to hit shelves in years, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings' It's a Holiday Soul Party delivers some much needed funk to the season. "A festive release with secular and Hannukah-themed tunes, as well as R&B-fueled reinvented classics," writes No Depression's Gwendolyn Elliott, "that makes it clear from the beginning this holiday soul party is all-inclusive."
Following through on the idea, on this first day of Hanukkah, the New York city-based band released a new, vaguely School House Rock-styled animated video for the tune, "8 Days (Of Hanukkah)." It's directed by Rich Terrana, and you can watch it here (You can also watch Ms. Jones on Conan tonight [Monday, Dec 8].)
Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will follow tonight's late-night TV appearance with two more; this coming Thursday the band will be featured on Michael Buble's holiday special Christmas in Hollywood on NBC, and this Friday on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS. Two more lives dates round out the band's holiday run, a December 8th date at Washington. D.C.'s, Lincoln Theatre, followed by a New Year's Eve show at Chicago's House of Blues. It's a Holiday Soul Party is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
