In a dazzling spectacle last night, St. Paul & The Broken Bones took the stage at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, leaving an indelible mark on the city’s music scene. The focal point of the evening was undeniably the extraordinary vocal prowess of lead singer Paul Janeway, whose soulful and emotive delivery resonated throughout the venue. Backed by the musically cohesive and powerful Broken Bones band, the concert was a masterclass in performance and showmanship.
Despite Janeway taking intermittent breaks from the stage, leaving the band to jam seamlessly, the show never lost its momentum. Observant fans noted Janeway occasionally coughing, suggesting a possible throat issue or cold. However, his determination to deliver an outstanding performance prevailed, and each song was met with fervent applause. The band’s ability to maintain a tight and dynamic sound during Janeway’s brief absences showcased their musical prowess and adaptability.
A standout moment of the night occurred when St. Paul & The Broken Bones performed hits like “City Federal Building” and “Apollo,” captivating the audience with their soulful sound. The climax of the evening came during the encore when Paul Janeway, undeterred by any physical constraints, ascended to the upper balcony to serenade the crowd up close. The choice to close the night with the poignant “Broken Bones” left an indelible impression on the delighted fans, making the Vogue Theatre concert a stupendous and unforgettable experience.
