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...

Phew... A mighty amount of activity....

Since the last update weve done five gigs which is quite good going, we have had some nice responses from the festival and open air concerts, a big thank you to Rob Wilson who sat in so nicely at Wadfest, he had learnt all the tricky bits better than we know them... Chapeau as they say...

We had some lovely responses from people who came up to us and said they hadnt expected to see an act as interesting as us - our hats wont be fitting soon if this carries on....

I returned the gesture to Glenn Tilbrook by giving him a copy of our new CD, as he so kindly gave us his the last time we met... the main difference was that our budget was most likely exponentially smaller...

Hope to see you all at the British Oak, it should be a good one...
