St. Paul and the Broken Bones at Blues & BBQ
Centennial Park — Sat., Jul. 9 at 9 p.m.
North Liberty has hit an exciting milestone in their yearly summer celebration, and they are celebrating in style. This July marks a full decade of the always free, family-friendly event Blues & BBQ.
The community has been buzzing since the festival announced yesterday that its headliner for 2016 will be St. Paul and the Broken Bones. The Birmingham, Ala.-based soul six-piece formed in 2012, and its 2014 debut LP, Half the City, garnered much critical acclaim.
The band, made up of Paul Janeway, Jesse Phillips, Browan Lollar, Andrew Lee, Al Gamble and Allen Branstetter, has opened for the Rolling Stones and performed at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, as well as touring internationally. St. Paul and the Broken Bones is currently working on its second full-length album, expected out this spring.
Blues & BBQ is a volunteer-driven festival, with over 200 volunteers participating each year. It celebrates music, food, arts and family.
