St. Paul & The Broken Bones headlined the opening night party of the 4th annual Savannah Stopover, and many of us have learned to trust the programming of festival director Kayne Lanahan and her able staff.
And, man, did they ever get it right this time. The youthful Birmingham-based soul band is fronted by Paul Janeway’s big, amazing voice and dynamic stage presence. He’s joined up there by some strong musicians who seem to be having as much fun as he is. It’s hard to imagine any music fan who wouldn’t appreciate the band’s first LP Half the City, which was released just a few weeks ago.
How big will St. Paul & The Broken Bones get? Will we even have a room big enough to hold them the next time around? So good.
I took some photos. Here are a few, with more after the jump:
