Live at Montreux Jazz Festival, Montreux, Switzerland, July 10, 2014
The renaissance of soul music in recent years has been fueled and ignited by a musical energy that has exploded out of a tightly knit family of musicians in Brooklyn, New York. In their many incarnations, these individuals help to create the dynamic roster of indie phenomenon Daptone Records. Though each artist has toured internationally and all have earned reputations for incendiary live shows, up until now, the legendary Daptone Super Soul Revue in its full splendor has been an experience rarely seen outside of New York City. Now, for the first time, this stellar group of artists has gathered en masse and mounted busses to bring this dynamic show on the road. This is not your average label showcase. Soul powerhouses Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and Charles Bradley join forces with the afrobeat juggernaut Antibalas for a non-stop extravaganza featuring Master of Ceremonies Binky Griptite and special performances by theSugarman 3 and Saun & Starr. Inspired by the high-energy Stax, Motown, and James Brown revues of the past, and presided over by the true standard bearers of today’s soul music, the Daptone Soul Revue is the show that can’t be missed.
This is Soul Excitement!
