Vaud & The Villains
Vaud & The Villains
Vaud and the Villains was born out of whimsical dreams, glitter and boa feathers. The big show is a 19 piece orchestra and cabaret, and has evolved over the years from a folk band singing traditional tunes…to an originally voiced genre bending spectacle commonly described as Americana Noir meets Moulin Rouge. At once seedy and inspiring…gritty and sublime. Bring your wretched souls, your sins and your dancing feet…they will save you and you will never be the same…

The band is founded by Andy Comeau and Dawn Lewis, known in the show as Vaud Overstreet and Peaches Mahoney. Both of them have had successful careers as actors but in 2008, were moved by the Bruce Springsteen Seeger Sessions, to create some sort of large ensemble musical family. They shared a love for old traditional folk songs they had both known growing up and became inspired by how the music has lived for so long and retained not only a relevance but an ability to galvanize large groups of people. They began setting new arrangements to old songs and new, all drawn upon the themeatic message of the show’s stolen motto: “Every Saint Has A Past, Every Sinner Has A Future”. Its visceral, uplifting, over the top fun. And the unmistakable message of hope, duality, acceptance and inspriation creeps up on you like a fink on a lonely dark street. The ever evolving cast of the show is comprised of a five piece horn section, incredible vocalists, a rhythm section, and three dancers.

"In 13 years of promoting and over 2000 concerts, Vaud & The Villains stand out as one of the most unique and engaging performances we have had the pleasure of presenting. From a club setting to festival performance, the showmanship and lively spirit connects with the audience in a way we rarely witness." - Todd Newman (of Good Medicine Presents)
