Photos: St. Paul & The Broken Bones Kick Off New Orleans Jazz Fest After Dark

New Orleans doesn’t take its jazz lightly. While the city’s Fair Grounds Race Course hosts the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival proper—check out our photo coverage, which will resume with this concluding weekend—that infectious love of syncopated rhythms, minor seventh chords and horn sections simply can’t be contained to one geographic location. The After Dark schedule winds through a litany of venues for audiences who deeply understand that sleep is overrated. Birmingham soul stalwarts St. Paul & The Broken Bones kicked off the program last week at the gorgeous Orpheum Theater, and the only thing more colorful than the blaring trumpets was lead singer Paul Janeway’s suit jacket. Check out Amy Harris’ photo gallery above for more grooving antics.
