Vaud and the Villains 19 piece 1930s New Orleans orchestra and cabaret show was created by J Andrew Comeau and Dawn Lewis. Both having grown up around Americana and trad jazz, they were inspired to create a show based in the 1930s when they heard and saw Bruce Springsteen's Seeger Session Band. The show draws from the motto: every saint has a past and every sinner has a is sexy, soulful, even spiritual by design. Vaud Overstreet, is based on Comeau's real life relative, a Depression Era charlatan/snake oil salesman in the South. Throughout the show, he weaves together the evening telling stories of the Villains and leading you into songs. No matter your color, creed, age or attitude...your sexual orientation or political affiliation, you will be up and dancing and singing along. At the end of the night, there is not a butt in a seat, not a soul unsaved, not a lost unfound...they leave every crowd the same...villainized.
