Vaud and the Villains
Louisiana - 1933
"My Brothers and Sisters….you are a weary and tattered mass…come just in time, give praise. We are a fragile creature one and all...we need one another to help us every now and then...My villains play with dynamite, my leggy dames, they buck and bite...your momma and daddy warned you and they were right. Your lives are all gonna change tonight. Hop, rag, grab a honey, slow drag….come on and get some troubles off your chest. You’ve brought your sins to the right address. You scoundrel brothers so wicked lewd…and all you sisters hiding your moral turpitude…delicious sinners…the faithless the depraved of you…we welcome you here …we’ve come to save you" - Vaud Overstreet 1933 - New Orleans
Lost Bayou Ramblers was born deep in South Louisiana performing old style, predominantly acoustic Cajun music at clubs and festivals across the US, Europe, and Canada. After years of playing traditional style, the Lost Bayou Ramblers found themselves needing to grow. To create a new sound that combined not just the sounds of their heritage, but all the musical influences they grew up loving. It began with the recording of their new album Mammoth Waltz at Dockside Studios in Maurice, La. The idea was to incorporate more influences, sounds, technology, and stylings with the traditional Cajun instrumentation. The resulting 11 tracks speak for themselves.
By chance and by friendship, a number of talented special guests inspired Lost Bayou Ramblers by bringing their own unique backgrounds to the recordings. The band began experimenting more in their live shows, and their new sound was born. It has developed into a mammoth style that evokes the power of it’s predecessors while reaching for the future; when Lost Bayou Ramblers is at full fervor, even the traditional accordion and fiddle take on new modern dynamics.
