Review: Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings + The Ray Mann Three

The rain that had threatened Sydney all weekend finally came down in buckets minutes before The Ray Man (sic) Three took the stage. They opened with a slow number and kept things at that pace throughout; the tempo only stepped up mid-track when the band broke down their singles to funk and blues jams. Mann’s vocals were smooth and light, perfectly complimenting the relaxed soul and breezy lyrics. Adding further to their happy ambience, all three members played with such infectious joy that the soggy audience quickly forgot the conditions.
