“The horn section is in crisp shirts and ties, and front man Paul Janeway wears a suit jacket and pocket square. But then Janeway’s thunderous voice takes over: a raspy, rafter-rattling soul powerhouse that propels him to shimmy his way across the stage like Mick Jagger at a backwoods tent revival.” – Matt Hendrickson, gardenandgun.com
I have a friend from Cincinnati, a former Public Radio DJ turned nurse and Flamenco dancer who is just crazy, I mean crazy, for St. Paul And the Broken Bones, who’ll be at Headliners on Saturday, November 22. The only thing keeping her from trekking down to Louisville tomorrow is her mother’s Ninetieth birthady, which is sufficient reason to keep most people close to home. The rest of us here in Derby City have to come up with our own excuses to miss the most authentic, non-imitative Southern soul band to come along since before we thought Alabama Shakes might somehow slide into that slot. The leader, vocalist Paul Janeway, manages to deliver the soul without getting lost in the surrounding fog of years of prior vocalists; in short, it ain’t fakery. They’ve been through town several times this year, so they seem to being building an audience. Thye’ve only got two EPs and a just releaed full-length, Half The City, so far, which isn’t bad, considering that they put this thing together in 2012. Tickets are $20 adv/ $22 DoS.

Here’s the official video for Call Me>

But [lead singer Paul] Janeway’s distinct, clean-cut look is the least important detail in The Gospel of the Broken Bones. Taking cues from his church choir background and emulating greats like Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding, a performance from St. Paul and the Broken Bones is completely uninhibited—the kind of transcendent experience that will leave you eager to share your vision of the light in the days that follow. – Dacey Orr, Paste.com”
St. Paul And The Broken Bones make their third stop in Louisville this year when they pop into Headliners on July 18 for an Official Forecastle Fest Late Night show. Clearly, this is a show for the young and very hardy or else the insomniacs of any age, since it starts … umm… late; in this case, midnight. As we have mentioned earlier, you have a seven-piece band with a horn section and a hefty white boy with glasses and natty jacket singing; you know you’ve got yourself some version of a soul band. Yes, sir. The new record is Half A City, which might their goal for total turnout to their shows in Louisville this year. Curtis Harding will open; tickets are $20 adv / $22 Dos. Take some No-Doz when you go.
Give a listen to the band live, singing “Grass Is Greener”:

St. Paul Broken Bones
You see a band with a horn section and a hefty white boy with glasses and a natty jacket singing and you know you’ve got yourself some version of a soul band. That would be St. Paul And The Broken Bones, offering up retro soul wailing and alt.James Brown cum Mick Jagger staging. There always seems to be a place for Southern gospel-influenced soul and R&B and SP&TBB fits the bill for this turn of the music business wheel. They’re getting plenty of buzz around their debut CD, Half The City (including this review by J. L. Puckett at the C-J.). Watch the video below and see if you aren’t moved to head over to Zanzabar on February 28 just to see. Tickets are $10 adv./$12 Dos.

Watch the band perform “Call Me”:
