Valentine’s Day was Friday, but everyone was still in the mood for love on Saturday night, when Gallant thrilled a sold-out crowd dominated by couples with a show at the Roxy Theatre.

Highlighting songs from his second album “Sweet Insomnia,” released last October, the artist born Christopher Joseph Gallant III kept things smooth and slow for much of the night but turned acrobatic on the more upbeat numbers, jumping, kicking and galloping across the stage. Backed by a full band, he welcomed guest 6LACK for “Sweet Insomnia’s” title track.

Nigerian-American sisters Ivana and Jessica Nwokike, aka VanJess, got the night off to a sultry start.

Gallant and VanJess reprised the show on Sunday night.
