SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The Vaughns opened to a beautiful summer evening in front of Springfield’s Town Hall to an attendance of about 80. 

They played mostly all original songs with some of the younger people in the crowd singing along. During the break the members of the band went into the crowd and started talking to those in attendance.

The Vaughns have a unique "retro alt-rock" sound which was great to listen to live and keeps a constant beat that makes them a pleasure to listen to.
