On Tuesday evening we went out for a little soul singing. The seven piece Alabama based band St. Paul and the Broken Bones came in to perform at DOK in Gent, and wow. All I can say is wow. They were amazing; their music was fun and full of energy and, to be cliché, soul. The band and singer Paul Janeway sounded like they just loved to play music together and for other people.
DOK is the absolute perfect location for all kinds of concerts, and I loved that the venue was kind of small. It was a bit intimate, and Paul was making jokes with the audience and giving us a lot of laughs. I loved it!
Fans were singing, dancing and bopping. I’m so glad PJ surprised me with tickets, otherwise I’m not sure that I would have heard of them for a long time. We were able to meet up with some friends, did a bit of swing dancing (much to PJs dismay/amusement…) and enjoy some drinks.
The night was so good that we ended up buying their album so we can jam and dance in the apartment. Puppy is already a fan!
We made some big moves this morning for the future, so now to celebrate!
Have you seen these soul singers? Make sure you do soon!
