Songs of Christmas: 'Ain't No Chimneys in the Projects'

December 12, 2013 - Andy Gray
One of the things I’m thankful for this holiday season is a healthy Sharon Jones.

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings had a big 2013 planned – a new album ready for release, lots of touring and appearances planned to support it.

Instead, the band’s frontwoman was diagnosed with bile-duct cancer. She had surgery in June and has been undergoing chemotherapy.

Life now appears to be on track for Jones and the Dap Kings. That album, “Give the People What They Want,” will be released in January, and the band hits the road the following month (including a show at Pittsburgh’s Byham Theater on April 13).

The band’s first public appearance since her surgery was at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, where the group performed “Ain’t No Chimneys in the Projects.” The song is a few years old, but the band released a new video for it this week.

Click the link to the right and enjoy. And if you’ve never heard the Dap Kings before, you’re in for a treat.
