A hard-touring, Brooklyn-based funk/soul band, The Dap-Kings mixes percussion, trumpets, guitars, organs and bass, but its key ingredient is the incredibly soulful voice of Sharon Jones. The group expertly emulates classic '60s and '70s funk, using only analog recording equipment and vintage instruments. Hear Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings perform a concert from WXPN and the Fillmore at the TLA in Philadelphia on Friday at noon ET.

The Dap-Kings contributed to more than half of Amy Winehouse's tracks on her breakthrough album Back to Black, and has enjoyed a breakthrough of its own with this year's 100 Days, 100 Nights.
