The Ottawa Jazz Festival today announced its closing headliner: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings.
As we mentioned in our previous article on the festival line-up, the festival had booked Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson for that evening, but they abruptly cancelled just before the festival launch.
The Dap-Kings is a funk/soul band whose previous Ottawa appearances at BluesFest and at the Babylon Club have been very well received. They will appear on the festival main stage at 9 p.m. on Sunday, July 4.
