Original Salvation

Their motto reads: “every saint has a past, every sinner has a future.” That's the whole point of rock and roll, isn't it? LA based and inspired by the French-Cajun-American melting pot of New Orleans, 19-piece orchestra Vaud & the Villains brings their blend of 1930s jazz and rock 'n' roll to the Ford September 6, with a show they've entitled "Original Salvation."

Don't let the idea of 1930s jazz trick you into thinking this is some polite throwback event. Yes, Vaud & the Villains will be decked out in the era's ravishing costumes (think Moulin Rouge meets the sweatiest corners of the Louisiana bayou), but they play with the intensity of today's rock 'n' roll.

The group's members - band leader and tenor sax extraordinaire Vaud Overstreet, vocalists Peaches Mahoney, Silky and Roxy Rae Boudreaux, fiddler phenom Big Daddy and Babyface O'Connor on the tenor banjo to name a few - have personas as saucy as their music. Trust us, these guys are raucous enough to melt the wax off your handlebar mustache.

Whether saint or sinner, you'll find a small bit of redemption and a whole lot of rollicking Americana at this one of a kind show.
