Funk-soul woman Sharon Jones is without her Dap-Kings this weekend. Instead, she'll be singing with Daryl Hall tonight at the Music Box at the Borgata in Atlantic City. It's a date on the Live From Daryl's House tour, which takes its name from Hall's web show which pairs the Philly soul singer off with a wide variety of collaborators.

I talked to the both of them this week, and though she didn't mean to brag or boast, Jones told me about what an expert markswoman she was back in the day when she was packing heat working as a prison guard at Rikers Island and driving around an armored truck for Wells Fargo.

That interview is here, and a LFDH clip of Hall and Jones singing "100 Day" is below. Watch the whole H & J show, from 2010, here.
