St. Paul and the Broken Bones live at South on Main!

St. Paul and the Broken Bones took us to church and brought down the house with their live performance at South on Main last Saturday! Their sound is fresh, yet reflective of the deep tradition of southern soul music born out of places like Muscle Shoals in their home state of Alabama.

That Nashville Sound: A Tribute to Ray Price

About 150 people braved the evening’s torrential rainstorm to hear a talented group of Arkansas musicians pay tribute to the great Country Music legend, Ray Price.

Led by Little Rock mainstays, The Salty Dogs (plus the furious fiddlin’ of Paul DeWeber and piano accompaniment of Michael Heavner), the event was sponsored by Cosmic Cowboy Studios!
