Sharon Jones

Celebrate the holiday season with our elegant Stage Door Cabaret series, featuring world-renowned artists in a speakeasy martini bar atmosphere. With an intimate layout, you can enjoy seating on the Historic Theater’s stage with professional table service.

Sharon Jones is a legendary performer and native of Portsmouth, NH, where she shines as an original stand-out of the Seacoast music scene, with engagements throughout New England, in Boston, and in New York.

An entertainer in the classical sense of the word, Sharon’s versatility allows her to communicate with audiences in any setting. With her band, Sharon gives a riff-driven high-energy R&B and Blues performance that gets the crowds dancing. Her passion for performance radiates, and her expressiveness embraces her audiences. Ending Sharon’s concerts is a challenge as the audience begs for more!

“We love backing up Sharon. She’s a star. She’s a treasure. It’s amazing to me that someone with her talent is still on the Seacoast,” says Ken Ormes of The Downtown Express – the band that often accompanies Sharon. There is a mutual delight for Sharon and her longtime followers when she performs for NH Seacoast audiences.

Portsmouth Spotlight magazine has named her a Portsmouth Gem!
