Vaud and the Villains’ Sin & Tonic: A New Orleans Musical Celebration at the Ford
Ford Amphitheatre (Hollywood, CA)
Blending old-time New Orleans brass band music with cabaret showmanship, Vaud and the Villains’ raucous live shows evoke the lurid glamour and high drama of Prohibition-era big bands. The 19-piece band, supported by vaudeville-style cabaret dancers, swaggers into the Ford for an evening of bold sounds, with melodies ranging from parlor songs, spirituals and Mardi Gras classics, and pageantry that brings 1930s New Orleans to life. As inspiring and spontaneous as the Big Easy itself, Sin & Tonic promises a raucous, one-of-a-kind evening of entertainment and revelry.
