Video: St. Paul & The Broken Bones – “Call Me” on Letterman

21 Jan

If you watch anything today, let it be this video. Earlier this month St. Paul & The Broken Bones were the musical guest on the Late Show with  David Letterman and boy did they deliver.   Besides their soul shaking performance, what struck me as just a sheer bit of awesome was how Letterman didn’t just introduce the band but rather did a whole shtick with Paul Janeway and what he wanted to see out of the band.  And he then followed that up with requesting an encore, he needed to hear more!  Just watch the below.  I for one had not seen Letterman do either of these in all the years watching the program and two, couldn’t be more excited for these fellas who I had perform at Life is Beautiful in 2014.  Countless friends have told me St. Paul & The Broken Bones were their favorite performance and discovery at the festival and I hope that in 2015 more and more discover the greatness of this band and get the opportunity to see them live.  It’s a religious experience!

New Video: @ImagineDragons – “I Bet My Life”

12 Dec

Brand new video released today by Imagine Dragons for their new single “I Bet My Life.” Caught these guys in concert last night at X 107.5 Holiday Havoc and as always, the guys delivered a massive show. It’s always amazing to see the hometown band just crush it on stage here in the neon desert and never shy away from professing their love of Las Vegas!

VIDEO: St. Paul & The Broken Bones – NPR Music – Tiny Desk Concert

8 Dec

It always brings a smile to my face when someone says “you know that band you were telling me about…..I’m absolutely in love with them now.” I can’t think of an artist on the Life is Beautiful 2014 lineup who created that moment over and over again before saying St. Paul & The Broken Bones. Ironically one of the performances I tabbed for people as a “must see,” I missed! Sadly I had some responsibilities that kept me occupied and couldn’t break away but hearing from so many friends how much fun they had at the show and how St. Paul & The Broken Bones was their favorite performance at the festival was music to my ears. That right there was enough to make me feel as if I had seen the performance myself.

Now if you haven’t had a chance to see St. Paul & The Broken Bones live, you must put this at the top of your concert list. Paul Janeway oozes soul and his band is top notch. Just click play below to view their NPR tiny desk concert and be amazed. St. Paul & The Broken Bones fans, you need to watch this too!

Enjoy!!

Peace + Love + Music
