About The Los Dawsons

We were originally an intrepid acoustic quartet from in and around Greenwich, we are now vocals, 2 guitars, electric Bass, Drums and occasional harmonica. We perform as close to acoustically as possible in small venues or amplified in larger ones, we have headlined large festivals but we are just as happy playing in your dining room and have done so on more than one occasion. We play music that encompasses 75 years of popular music; jazz, blues, swing, country, rockabilly, rocknroll, latin, soul, Rhythm and Blues, pops, standards, folk, punk, brit pop and even some originals too... so Rent Parties Bar Mitzvahs or any other suitable occasion is our pleasure or hopefully yours! A snapshot of our latest tracks are featured in the Flash player here, they were recorded live with no overdubs – so this is what we sound like live...

A Bit to Report, and another review

The most excellent Greenwich Phantom gave us a very fair review and was very complimentary….

We have done a few gigs at Bobs social and con club in Charlton Church Lane, we have been well received but we seem to be playing when there is no-one there which is a great pity, not least when we learnt a few Elvis numbers for the Elvis death Party. On the other hand Chu and Chos seems to be well established and we have had good volumes of punters throughout the quiet summer holidays. We are hopeful of a gig at the Pilot and hopefully the British Oak which are local pubs which have a nice vibe… and the Pilot is my favourite Pub locally, incidentally the Oak runs a close second…

We have a couple of functions coming up including one as a quartet with our fabulous sometime drummer Mark Walker, a young lad Mark Trounson has been depping double bass at some recent gigs that Chris hasn’t been available for and hes done well, chapeau for scoring a black shirt from the coffers…

And last but not least the incredible Dennis Greaves from 9 Below Zero seems to enjoy our playing as he had been a fairly regular sit-in which has really boosted our confidence as hes rather good...
