#424 :: Sharon Jones (1956 - 2016) & The Dap-Kings Tribute

GO FEET! Radio #424

LIVE stream:

Sharon Lafaye Jones (May 4, 1956 – November 18, 2016) was an American soul and funk singer. She was the lead singer of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, a soul and funk band based in Brooklyn, New York. Jones experienced breakthrough success relatively late in life, releasing her first record when she was 40 years old. In 2014, Jones was nominated for her first Grammy, in the category Best R&B Album, for Give the People What They Want. Among Jones' influences are James Brown, Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Thom Bell, Otis Redding, Ike & Tina Turner, Marva Whitney and everyone from Motown. In addition, Jones also cites more recently known artists, such as Michael Jackson, Prince, Erykah Badu and BeyoncĂ©. It was announced on June 3, 2013, that Jones had been diagnosed with bile duct cancer and underwent surgery, which forced her to postpone the release of the group's fifth album, Give the People What They Want. The diagnosis was later changed to stage II pancreatic cancer, for which Jones had surgery on her liver and underwent chemotherapy. The chemotherapy caused hair loss, and for a time she performed bald, refusing to wear wigs.

During the screening of her documentary at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, Jones revealed that her cancer had returned, and that she would be undergoing chemotherapy again. She suffered a stroke whilst watching the 2016 United States presidential election results, blaming Donald Trump, and suffered another stroke the day after the election.

Jones suffered a stroke on election night 2016 and after a second stroke days later died on November 18, 2016 in Cooperstown, New York, aged 60. According to bandmate Gabriel Roth, "She told the people that were [at the hospital] that Trump gave her the stroke. ... She was blaming Trump for the whole thing." 

Some artists shine brighter than their contemporaries. Sharon Jones was one of those artists. This is a tribute to one of the finest soul-sisters this side of originators. We miss you already Sharon. Thank you for sharing your soul with us.

RAGGAMUFFIN X Full Line Up Announced

10th Anniversary Event
Pure Reggae Line-up
Saturday 18 February 2017

A pure reggae line-up featuring reggae icon Shaggy, The Wailers feat. Family Man, Ky-Mani Marley, 2016 Grammy Award winners Morgan Heritage and New Zealand’s own stars Six60 is set to take the stage for Raggamuffin X – the tenth anniversary of New Zealand’s premier reggae festival.

Raggamuffin X takes place at The Trusts Arena in Auckland on Saturday 18 February 2017.

Raggamuffin is the largest reggae festival in the Southern Hemisphere. In recent years the festival has included urban and hip hop acts, but for the tenth anniversary it has returned to its reggae roots and sought out top artists to celebrate the milestone birthday.

Headlining Raggamuffin X will be Six60 and Shaggy. Six60 is returning to New Zealand over the summer for a series of gigs, but Raggamuffin X will be the band’s only Auckland performance.

Always a crowd favourite Shaggy returns to celebrate Raggamuffin’s tenth anniversary. Known for his Grammy Award winning album ‘Boombastic’, chart topping hits ‘Boombastic’, ‘It Wasn’t Me’, and ‘Angel’, Shaggy is a multi platinum selling pop reggae legend and one of the most requested acts on Raggamuffin’s Facebook page. Organisers of this year’s festival say he was an absolute first choice for Raggamuffin X.

Raggamuffin X wouldn’t be a reggae party without a Marley in there – and for the tenth anniversary Ky-Mani Marley with Gentleman will be playing, plus The Wailers featuring Family Man will keep the Marley vibes alive.

The ‘Royal Family’ of reggae, Morgan Heritage were crowd pleasers at Raggamuffin VII and return for the festival’s tenth anniversary concert on the back of their 2016 Grammy Award winning album (best reggae album) ‘Strictly Roots’.

Jamaican-born singer Etana has established herself as one of the most powerful and distinctive female voices in reggae. A hit at Raggamuffin VIII, she’s returning to please the crowds at Raggamuffin X.

Alongside Six60, New Zealand bands highlighted at Raggamuffin X include crowd pleasers The BlackSeeds and Kiwi reggae legends Herbs. Salmonella Dub, House of Shem, Lomez Brown, Jamaica’s Conkarah, and Hawaii’s Kiwini and Jah Maoli complete the full line-up for the main stage.

Last year the Raggamuffin Village was expanded to offer more variety and for 2017, a second stage will be in the village offering additional music options including New Zealand bands Foundation and Common Unity, along with DJ Al’Goodie

Tickets for Raggamuffin X are on pre-sale from 9am today and on General Public sale from Tuesday 25 October. VVIP, VIP and GA tickets are available and Raggamuffin X is R18. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster 0800 111 999 with a lay-by option available from Tuesday 25 October, and Red Rat clothing stores.

Run run as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm a ginger beer man! It's not where you place in the race, its how you run the race to the end and how you stop along the way to help people that makes you truly great. I'm reminded of whats really important through the example of my brother, Jason Taiapa, and his team mate, Rob Tongotea, who ran the New York City Marathon on 6th November. They were prepared to smash it but choose to hang with a struggling team mate, Nu'umoe G Collins, to see her over the finish line together. Well done guys! Heres a tribute to you and all those that ran the NYC Marathon 2016. Run Run Rudy!
