This past spring, Daptone Records had just announced the August release of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings’ Give the People What They Want when Sharon Jones was diagnosed with cancer. The scheduled release and supporting tours were immediately put on hold and all efforts were quickly shifted to her treatment and recovery. It brings great joy and relief to announce that after a successful operation, ongoing treatment, and the continued support and love of friends, family, and fans, Sharon Jones is back, and will be performing at The Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg on Tuesday, April 8, 2014.
Jazz Winnipeg is pleased to announce the return of the popular Nu Sounds Series. Now in its eighth season, the series was established to showcase Manitoba musicians and to give them an avenue to explore new ideas. Running from January through May, all Nu Sounds concerts take place at the Park Theatre.
