15 Seconds of Fame...

Musicians occasionally invite people to join them on stage for a few minutes.

Sometimes a guy is offered a chance to play his guitar.

But, usually it's the ladies who climb up to dance.

Some look embarrassed. Some are pretty good.

Every now and then, one steals the show!

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings exploded their 60s & 70s Funk/Soul sound at the Music Farm Friday night. Sharon nodded to security to allow a half dozen fans to share her stage for a few moments to wiggle and shake.

The last dancer REALLY worked it!

Sharon brought her 8-piece band - and two back-up singers - to Charleston and packed the Farm.

The music pounded almost non-stop. For two solid hours.

The wildly enthusiastic crowd clapped and shouted as Ms. Jones channeled James Brown and other R&B stars.

Lots of his songs. Many of his moves. More than matching his high energy. Yikes.

My Funky needs were fulfilled.

(Click the pix for details. It was great leaning against the front of the stage at the Farm as Sharon worked it back and forth. I was exhausted! Thanks for checking out my 401st entry.)
