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...

In the Studio Today and the East Greenwich Pleasaunce Picnic

We started the recording session at 10am, finished at about 6.15pm and we managed to complete 10 live take songs from our set list, we were a quartet with Mark playing drums and percussion, so the groove was really great... we think we have a good CD for all of you out there in wonderful webland/dawsonista land... it should be mixed and mastered in time for the Oxleas Wood Cafe gig which we are very much looking forward to... if you can make it the new CD will be an added bonus...

We have a really funky gig at the East Greenwich Pleasaunce Picnic, hopefully Glenn Tilbrook will be headlining on Sunday 7th June 12-4pm - we should be playing at 2pm all being well, the last few events there have been really special - its a glorious open space... and we will bring a few CDs along too...
