Get ready for this fresh faced band to blow you away with their old soul sound.
Vinyl Music Hall hosts St. Paul and the Broken Bones from Birmingham, Alabama with Nashville opener, Humming House at 7 p.m. on Sunday, January 25.
Sunday seems like the perfect day for this preacher’s son and his band to deliver their hand shaking, lip curling soul sermon.
Fresh off the Jam Cruise, Cayamo sharing the line-up with Lyle Lovett and his Acoustic Group, John Prine, Brandi Carlile, Lucinda Williams and many many more, they will be raring to go.
Out and About Pensacola first discovered St. Paul and the Broken Bones in 2013, while perusing artists on the Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama’s line-up. All it took was one video featuring lead singer, Paul Janeway’s gut busting vocals backed up by his amazingly talented band to give us goose bumps. PThere he was in his jeans, Saints shirt and baseball cap dropping to his knees and pouring out every note of the song ‘Broken Bones and Pocket Change’. From that moment on, we told everyone we knew about these guys.

We were lucky enough to interview them that year and boy have they taken off since. Read “Make No Bones About It”
They gave an amazing performance in 2013 at Hangout Festival and again making an appearance in 2014. St. Paul and the Broken Bones make a mark on you when you hear them, let alone watch them.
Since forming only four years ago they have managed to perform on CBS This Morning: Saturday, on NPR Morning Edition, put on an NPR Tiny Desk Concert (where Janeway performed atop a desk in a purple suit and gold shoes) and performed on Late Night with David Letterman. They are headed to Europe in March after some extensive touring in the states.
Still in their infancy really, they released their first 4 song EP, ‘Greetings From St. Paul and the Broken Bones’ before they even had their first live performance. Then in February of 2014, Ben Tanner, of Alabama Shakes fame produced their first full-length album, ‘Half the City’, which is making high marks on the charts.
Expect a high energy, butt shaking musical revival.
