Allen Toussaint & The Dap-Kings
Allen Toussaint shared the New Year’s Eve bill with Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings at the Best Buy Theater in New York City. Although Jones didn’t appear with Toussaint during his opening solo set, a number of her bandmates did indeed sit in with the New Orleans legend. The Dap-Kings added brass to three tunes during the December 31st gig. They appeared with him for “Sneakin’ Sally through the Alley,” “Get Out My Life Woman” and “Yes We Can Can” before rejoining Jones for her animated headlining performance.
