Have you heard of St. Paul and the Broken Bones?? If not, then you are missing out! Paul Janeway is a dear friend of ours, and has actually been dating one of my best girlfriends Caroline for the past several years. Well, he started a band a few years ago. They love to play at Bottletree downtown, so we used to go see him there a lot. He’s quite the entertainer! You can’t keep that guy still. He’s always standing on amps, moving all around stage, sometimes getting himself tangled in the microphone wires. Well, his band is doing great and they are quickly becoming a big deal in the music industry. They have traveled around the southeast performing at various music festivals like Rhythm and Blues in Chatanooga, TN; and SXSW in Austin, TX. Last summer they played at Avondale Brewery during an afternoon music festival. And get this! They will be opening for John Mayer when he comes to play in Tuscaloosa in April! And if that’s not enough, they were the cover story of BMetro magazine last August in an article featuring local bands that make the city of Birmingham a great music city. St. Paul and the Broken Bones are going places!Their style is a mixture of soul and rock. Paul sings lead vocals. His wing man, Jesse Phillips, plays bass guitar. Then there’s Andrew Lee on drums, Browan Lollar on electric guitar, and 3 guys on brass (trumpet, sax, and trombone).They played at Workplay Friday night, and a bunch of us went to enjoy the show, which was SOLD OUT by the way! We even met up for dinner at JClyde before the show. It was a good time. And of course, Paul did not disappoint. Such a great show, my friend! Keep it up!!
