Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have bowed out of Monday’s performance in Council Bluffs.

The renowned soul/funk group was set to perform Monday in a Playing With Fire concert at River’s Edge Park in Council Bluffs as a part of Loessfest, a grand opening series of events at the park.

“Sharon and the Dap-Kings are all tremendously disappointed they are unable to appear and trust fans will understand. They hope to see them at another show soon,” read a press release.

The release cited “an urgent family matter” for the cancellation.

“Our best wishes go out to Sharon and the Dap-Kings,” said Jeff Davis, Playing With Fire’s organizer.

Vintage Trouble, a rock and soul group, will now headline the show. Lincoln band Josh Hoyer & the Shadowboxers have been added to fill out the lineup.

The schedule is now Mojo Bag at 4 p.m., Satchel Grande at 5:10 p.m., Josh Hoyer & the Shadowboxers at 6:45 p.m. and Vintage Trouble at 8:30 p.m.
