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...

Parties, Rehearsing, Studios and Open Air festivals

We played at a really hectic Party in Camberwell for our friends Dean and his partner Lisas’ Birthday, it was a fabulous night which is a testament to good organising; and we played well too..

Dean sang, and so did some other guests including Steve Ellis from Love Affair singing Stand by me and a young lady called Alex did a sterling interpretation of Summertime..The Restaurant should be given a mention as we were extremely impressed with their enthusiasm, professionalism and food… so Caravaggios in Camberwell gets 5 stars…

We did a very in depth rehearsal yesterday evening for the Studio session that we are doing later this week; it will be a magnum opus as we are recording 11 numbers live on the day that will be mixed next week ready for the Oxleas Wood CafĂ© gig…

So we need to get some good photos together for the artwork and we have to be very focused… but if the results yesterday evening are anything to go by I am very hopeful…

It seems hopeful that we have the East Greenwich Plaesaunce Picnic gig which will be a lot of fun and we are hopeful about some other very interesting outdoor local gigs later in the Summer… And we are in conversation with Kingy at the East Dulwich Tavern too (EDT)
