St. Paul and the Broken Bones to play

st-paul-and-broken-bonesThe producers of the Rochester Lilac Festival, Party in the Park and the Park Ave Fest, Rochester Events is introducing a new concert series called Live at MLK!

The first show is on Friday, July 12 and St. Paul and the Broken Bones will be performing. The Birmingham, Alabama-based rock and roll soul band was born and raised in the Deep South, a place where social consciousness can still take a backseat to unsavory traditions and where a family’s expectations sometimes supersede everything else.

The band is led by singer Paul Janeway. Despite the fierce familiar love he enjoyed and returned, he realized that the way he viewed the world was a bit different compared to those around. He began seeking an outlet to share what weighed on his mind and in his heart.

“I’ve always been the artsy weirdo in the family,” says Janeway. “I’m liberal; a blue dot in a very red part of the world. When you’re from Alabama you have to go out of your way to make people understand that you think a little differently. But we’re an Alabama band—it’s who we are.”

Live at MLK! begins at 5 p.m. at Manhattan Square Park. rochesterevents.com/live-at-mlk
