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!

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

Countdown to Life is Beautiful 2014: St. Paul & The Broken Bones

27 Sep

The home stretch towards the second Life is Beautiful festival in Downtown Las Vegas, October 24-26. In anticipation, at DoYouHearTheMusic.com I’ll be running down an artist or two on the lineup! If you haven’t gotten your tickets, do so at www.lifeisbeautiful.com and if you have, awesome and I can’t wait to see you!

Let me lay it down like this.  If you are coming to Life is Beautiful, this is one of your can’t miss performances of the festival, St. Paul & The Broken Bones.  These guys have absolutely blown up in less than two years and 2015 is primed to be massive for this Birmingham, Alabama outfit.  Not only is their album, Half The City, something you should have on repeat but St. Paul & The Broken Bones have delivered one of the best shows I’ve seen in 2014.   They ooze soul and when you hear Paul Janeway’s voice, you may just have a religious experience.
