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...

May 2009 - gigs - CDs - ideas etc etc.

It was a busy weekend, Dave went to see Steve Morrison & Mark Walker play at the Spice of Life last Friday and by all accounts most excellent they were... Uh oh....Dave then found out that locally on the Bank Holiday Sunday at the same time we were at Cattleyas (4pm - 10.30 pm) we were competing for audience with Steve Morrison and Al Richardson at Olivers in Greenwich and Bruise were at the Pelton Arms in East Greenwich so suddenly we thought wed have a quiet one... as we have common fans....

Coupled with this we had to do a BBQ gig in between sets that alot of our regulars were invited to, so we thought we were onto a hiding..... thankfully it was cooking all night and the people stayed with us from the off...

A few cards given out and some new people on the Dawsonista mailer... the Charlton fans seemed to enjoy what we were doing and even danced a bit too... so the gloom surrounding relegation was nullified

Yesterday (May bank Holiday) We went to the British Oak to see our old mates play in the Mish Mash Band - and stomping they were too... I wonder whether the Oak should get us to warm up for the next one.. now that would be a great gig...

We are also liaising with the East Greenwich Pleasaunce picnic to perform, trying to get closer to Charlton House because we think we could offer a great package there... (as other friends are interested in joining us) and we are desperately trying to find any other interesting outdoor or indoor gigs that are unusua.... if you have anything in mind pitch it back to us...

We will hopefully have our new CD ready for the Oxleas gig... anyone out there with a good pic of us that we could use?
