Vaud & the Villians

Vaud and the Villains b 300x217 Vaud & the Villians vaud and the villains summer concerts Levitt Pavilion Pasadena Levitt Pavilion free summer events free events free concerts concerts  photoThere are 19 villains in Vaud and the Villains, beginning with Vaud Overstreet who’s described as “charlatan, seducer, tenor saxophone.” Born 1892.

Big Daddy’s a fence, loan shark, and slum lord. Oh yes, and fiddle man, vocals.

Shadie Sadie Sinclair probably doesn’t need to be explained. Coco Gitan is listed as a “sultry Creole queen, French chain gang escapee, specializes in crushing.”

Now, Low Down Kate is “shin kickin’” and plays banjo, bass, and guitar, while Miss Lucky Lafontaine is a gamblin’ hall madam and a soul singin’ shark. Silky is the poet, a hoofer, and singer, and Wulfie is an Overstreet brother along with being a grifter and a thief. Somehow he finds the time to play trombone.

Such are a few of the Villains who will be taking the stage on July 5th as a part of Levitt Pavilion Pasadena’s Summer Music Festival with 50 free concerts.

Just last month, Vaud & the Villains performed at the Sacramento Music Festival. This was after they “played a big fancy party” in Antibes, France. Their audience? None other than Andrea Bocelli, John Travolta, Adrien Brody, Heidi Klum, Rosario Dawson, and “the Biebs.”

Vaud and the Villains are New Orleans jazz with a twist of cabaret, fully costumed, slightly suggestive (maybe “quite” would be a more appropriate adjective), and a whole lot of fun. Just to get a taste, here’s the verbal intro to one of their videos:

Our next villain was saved from unspeakable squalor; her own parents criminals locked away. She was hauled off to a nunnery. Wouldn’t you know it; she didn’t last one smoke. They claim she picked a nun’s pocket and told dirty jokes. Well, pickpocket ain’t much for one’s reputation. She prefers to call it financial relocation. You’re gonna want to hold it against her; she’s a victim of genetics. You’re gonna want to hold yourself her against her, because she’s got some great aesthetics. Won’t you welcome to the stage our gutter-mouth sweet patootie, our top tier doll. She’s the queen of the villains; the one, the only, Miss Peaches Mahoney:
