Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings @ Album de la Semaine Canal+, Paris, May 07 2014
see ya there tonight

-Martha Reeves from Martha Reeves & The Vendellas is also playing tonight in Paris @ new Morning club
-John Butler Trio @ Trianon (sold out)
-"Live me do" France Inter radio recording with The Nits and others... (free entrance)

After attending Martha Reeves' rehearsals we went straight to Canal+ to attend Sharon Jones' recording for L'Album de la Semaine, she played a sold-out concert yesterday at the Olympia theatre.
lots of musicians on stage with backing vocalists, Sharon is leading her band into a 7 songs set, she's been dubbed the Female James Brown, well not really the music is different, though she's playing soul music, and she's not trying to copy Mr Brown , she has her own style and personality.
very enjoyable set
