Jon Batiste with the Dap-Kings - Summer Tour

This summer, Jon Batiste, acclaimed musician and bandleader for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, joins forces for the first time ever, with The Dap-Kings for a limited number of festival appearances. The Dap-Kings, house band for the Brooklyn soul label Daptone Records and longtime groove behind Sharon Jones, will back up Batiste, playing music inspired by New Orleans soul, Allen Toussaint and more. Gabriel Roth from The Dap-Kings confirms, “We are thrilled to be returning to the stage and could not have found a more fitting collaborator than Jon, with whom we share a deep love and respect for New Orleans musical roots. He's a distinctly talented dude with a rare feel for that music, and we can't wait to tear up these tunes together.”
