Here you have amazingly solid vocals, deep soul, hip shaking funk, and to top it all off, the concert will take place in one of our city’s most beautiful venues in the heart of Stanley Park. Known for their incredible live shows, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings are a part of a revivalist movement for their genre (they even recorded their 2010 album on an eight-track tape machine).
Tickets for this concert are currently on sale and they’re all general admission, all ages, lawn seating. It’s an early show, starting around 5:30pm on the 27th and guests Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears will be opening the show.
I have two tickets up for grabs if you would like to win your way in, here’s how to enter:

Update The winner is Kate!
