"Les Vaughn" has been featured in many magazine and newspaper articles, both local and national, such as Christian Country Music Association''s own "Power Source" magazine" (a Christian Country Music publication) which is based in Nashville,Tn. and also New York''s City''s "Music Review" Magazine".
One of Les''s compositions, "Ambrotose Train" climbed to # 38 on the "Music Review Magazine" National Christian/Country Charts in 2001. This same song was distributed to over 1000 Christian/Country stations in that same year. It received substantial airplay and Radio Giveaways in LaBlenec, France, The Netherlands, and Sydney Australia.
Les''s seven piece band of the late 70''s named, "Hayride" was chosen as the Sat. night dance band three years in succession at Clark County Washington''s annual "Evergreen Air Show". Les''s very popular "Back Porch Boogie Band" of the 80''s was selected as the 1988 headliner group for the annual "Clark County Sausage Festival". He remembers that particular night as one of his most memorable performances. That night, the group was repeatedly called back by the audience for four encores before management finally dropped the surrounding fences to disperse the crowd of over five thousand.
In the year 2000 Les was selected as a showcase performer for the "CCMA" convention and awards show which was held at the Downtown Sheraton Hotel in "Nashville, Tennessee". The entire "Fender Benders Band" traveled from Oregon to attend this huge event. In Sept. 2001, Les, Ted Matzen and the "Fender Benders" were featured in a full spread, two page article in "Positively Entertainment Magazine". The "Fender Benders" were advertised as the "Headliner Band" at the first ever 2002 "Hoodstock" festival in memory of 9-11, which was held on the banks of The Columbia River, Hood River, Or. We saved a live recording of that performance and also have a copy of that Cd for sale. It is the "Hoodstock Live" cd. You can find it on the website https://www.tradebit.com
"Les Vaughn" was, and still is greatly inspired by the songs and styles of many of the great musical artists, which include to name a few: "Carl Perkins", "Elvis Presley", "Johnny Cash", "Marty Robbins", "Chuck Berry", "Hank Williams Sr." and many others. "Les Vaughn''s" voice, as you will be sure to agree, is phenomenal! Whether he is singing or playing the guitar, regardless of what style of song he is performing, his deep, resonant voice will immediately surround you with the full resonance and presence that many other singers don''t posses. The Mayor of Dufur, Oregon, in 1993, at the annual "Threshing Bee" was heard to say "I thought God was singing Johnny Cash songs out of the sky". Les will reach out to you and touch your heart with his original love songs, which are sure to earn your full attention. He has the ability to rock your soul, cause tears to run down your cheeks, or make you laugh; all signs of a true performer and entertainer. Some say "he sounds more like Johnny Cash, than Johnny Cash" when performing many of his favorites that were made famous by this country music legend.
When performing with the group, "The Fender Benders", "Les Vaughn" provides rich and full rhythm guitar and fill . He sings many different styles, lead vocals and harmonies as backup for other singers in the group. Les''s voice is described, as a friend''s wife puts it, "very commanding and unforgettable". Les brings country standards, oldies, and rock and roll to the forefront and performs them in a way that is in fact, "original" and in his own style.
Les is presently busy playing for a few private parties and wedding receptions and is working on writing and recording a new Gospel album for release in late 2005 along with a new 2005 Christmas album.
