This Sunday, the stage in Maas hall will be crowded with artists releasing their music on the prominent label Daptone Records in a three-hour steaming soul revue.
Daptone stand for lovingly made retro soul and funk, preferably live and on stage, and brought with refreshing and renewed energy. The basis of the label are a studio, located in a brownstone in Brooklyn, New York, and especially house band The Dap-Kings, who accompanied Amy Winehouse in the past and includes label owners Gabriel Roth and Neal Sugarman on bass and tenor sax respectively. The Dap-Kings have also accompanied almost-forgotten soul vocalists like Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley to long-awaited fame. These two soul powerhouses now join forces with afrobeat band Antibalas for a non-stop extravaganza featuring Master of Ceremonies Binky Griptite and special performances by the Sugarman 3 and Saun & Starr. Inspired by the high-energy Stax, Motown, and James Brown revues of the past, and presided over by important bearers of today's soul music, the Daptone Super Soul Revue is a show that can't be missed.
