David Vaughan at MAP Studio Café 46 Grafton Road, London NW5 3DU at 20.00

Wonderful Singer/Songwriter David Vaughan is back in April with his unique songs blending jazz, world music and tango, at a new venue, the MAP Studio Cafe, a uniquely bohemian centre for music, art and print (hence the name) tucked neatly away in the backstreets of Kentish Town. There is a music studio in the basement, a café on the ground floor, and an intimate performance venue upstairs.

Vaughan will be welcoming a great new clarinettist to the stage as Daniel Broncano is unable to make the event. Spanish-born Jordi Juan Perez has been wowing British audiences with his virtuosic command of the instrument as well as his warm, subtle tone together with the ever-faithful Romano Viazzani on accordion. Tickets are only £8 and can be purchased on the night or by calling 0207 916 0545. Doors open at 7.30pm and the concert begins at 8pm.

Talented Singer-songwriter David Vaughan is performing with his trio – Romano Viazzani (accordion) and Daniel Broncano (clarinet) at a free lunchtime concert at St. Olave’s Church in the heart of the City of London, 8 Hart Street, London EC3R 7NB | 020 7488 4318 on the 22nd June 2016 at 1.05pm.

David Vaughan’s music is emotionally deep, at times very funny and always beautifully arranged for the instruments at his disposal drawing on the many colours he is able to produce with even three musicians.  The concert is free but donations towards the musicians are welcome and there will be a collection box at the exit for appreciative concert-goers to show their generosity!

You can buy David Vaughan’s wonderful CD- We’re on a holiday with the full quintet playing as well as a wonderful track with a string section on this site.

David Vaughan – at Oliver’s Jazz bar 13th March 2015

David Vaughan Quintet

After a very successful CD launch at The Pheasantry David Vaughan is back at Oliver’s Jazz Bar on 13th March 2015, not as the larger ensemble that launched the CD which at times featured 6 musicians on the stage, but down to the trio-sized outfit in order to fit on the tiny stage at Oliver’s Jazz bar. As well as David Vaughan on Piano, Trumpet and Guitar, Romano Viazzani will be on accordion and Daniel Broncano on clarinet.  If you couldn’t get to The Pheasantry on February 24th then you can purchase the excellent new album fro this site. Whilst David Vaughan’s voice is undoubtedly coming from the world of Rock his own songs have a variety of influences and the album title We’re on a holiday is very apt as the album sometimes evokes urban Buenos Aires and sometimes the Italian countryside.  There are Jazz and Tango influences and Classical and Folk too.  David has created his very own style which thankfully, is not easily pigeon-holed into any pre-set musical genre which was a necessary evil in the days when you went to your local record shop to buy records and would immediately go to the to the Classical, Jazz or Pop sections of the store.  Vaughan arranges all his own music and stretches his musicians into roles they are not always cast in. The result is utterly charming and unique.  The CD, in it’s presentation is “old school” in that Vaughan generously includes a 12-page glossy booklet inside which includes all the lyrics of his songs as well as some great shots of the musicians at work.  For the album you also get many more musicians than the regular 5-piece set up of the aforementioned Vaughan, Viazzani, Broncano, along with Tom Hewins on Tuba and Double Bass and Jason Reeve on Drums.  There’s whole String quartet on one track, not to mention Flute/Piccolo, Dulcimer on other tracks.  The larger ensemble will be back in concert soon and watch this space for announcements in that regard.
