Sharon Jones Performs With Middle-School Admirers

Remember Northbrook Garage? The middle school quartet that previously covered Sharon Jones trekked five hours from Chicago to St. Louis to catch Jones and her Dap-Kings, and got more than they bargained for.

Last month, NBG performed Jones’ “She Ain’t a Child No More” at the Northbrook Days Festival in their Northbrook, Ill. hometown, which was documented in a charming YouTube video.

Jones persuaded the young group of soul-shakers to the stage to help out with the song they once covered. She traded lines with NBG’s lead singer Elenna Sindler and attempted to get the young girl to mimmic some shimmying dance moves (Sindler declined). The rest of NBG usurped their respective instruments from Dap-Kings drummer, bassist and guitarist, riding out the rest of the song.

“The babies are bringing back soul!” Jones shouted following the performance.

“We’re still speechless,” NBG tells Paste.
