- Introduction: Free Concert at the Dillon Amphitheater!
Vaud and the Villains is a large New Orleans themed stage musical show based in Los Angeles, California, the group was created by actor Andy Comeau and his wife Dawn Lewis. The couple are known by their stage names, Vaud Overstreet and Peaches Mahoney, when performing with the band. 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 relevance but an ability to galvanize large groups of people. They began setting new arrangements to old songs and new, all drawn upon the thematic message of the show’s stolen motto: “Every Saint Has A Past, Every Sinner Has A Future”. It’s visceral, uplifting, over the top fun. And the unmistakable message of hope, duality, acceptance, and inspiration 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.
They have played for the Telluride Jazz Festival, The Live Oak Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival, LEAF Festival, “The Simpsons Take The Bowl” @ The Hollywood Bowl, the Cannes International Film Festival, appeared on Showtimes’s House of Lies, CARSLA(City of Santa Monica), Pasadena’s Levitt Pavilion, City of Santa Clarita, LACMA’s ArtWalk, OC Weekly, for the City of West Hollywood, House of Blues, Drink Eat Play, El Rey Theatre, Cirque Berzerk, Clear Channel, and Disney Studios.

They have headlined the Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles three times.
