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...

Some new activity, Broadcasts and Bassist

We have a new double bass player Mark Trounson who is a great player and a few years our junior, and a music graduate so hes rather musical... A big wellcome there

We have just been broadcast on the web on Graham Hollands "It's A Frog's Life Acoustic Podcast" in fact we opened up his 66th show "getting my Kicks" with a song that we wont win any prizes in guessing what it was - thank you Mr Troup.

We are putting two new sets together, one of poppier Christmas stompers, and a set of originals to augment our existing three sets of varied material, perhaps 2009 will be our seasick Steve year? we are definitely starting to sound "quite something" to my ears so I am quite excited by the future...
