Vaud and the Villains
The Cutting Room
44 East 32nd Street, New York, NY 10016
Vaud and the Villains is 19 piece 1930s New Orleans orchestra and cabaret. With echos of Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Session Band, they are Americana Noir meets Moulin Rouge. A genre bending spectacle…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…

Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, acoustic guitars, upright bass and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. It’s theatrical and humorous. It’s musical and intense. It entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the spectator to join the band throughout the performance in momentary fits of claps, snaps and sing-alongs. If Django Reinhardt, the cast of Stomp and the Beatles all had a party at Tim Burton’s house, Caravan of Thieves would be the band they hired.

Nellie McKay sings wonderfully original music that is tuneful and clever. Part cabaret, part sparkly pop, the charming melodic surface of her music is witty and playful, using whimsical humor to entertain and catch the ears of all who hear her. Nellie has a fantastic gift of mingling pleasurable upbeat melodies with subversive undercurrents that leave crowds asking for more.
