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...

The last few Cattleya gigs, and the Oak this Saturday (30 January)

We have had a series of busy and successful gigs at Cattleyas, it has consistently been a fabulous vibe with some great guests; Dennis Greaves has graciously sat-in on more than one occasion as has Glenn Tilbrook; to have two professional musicians of this calibre playing with us is a joy.

Dean Powell gave his all singing on a couple of songs, and Paris a new fellow on our scene gave us his interpretations of a few of our offerings... These have been well received; to such an extent that we have asked him to come and sing with us at the British Oak this Saturday..

Heres some food for thought; Paris sang on the TV so he has sung to more people in one shot than I have sung to in my whole life... amazing..

Recent Gigs Reviewed & Local Momentum!

We have just done a couple of gigs where we have had the good luck of working with Glenn Tilbrook, Dennis Greaves, Janny Ballard and Paris (the Voice).... We have experienced much joy; the guests have been so thoroughly musical and have knocked the socks off everyone who was there. The evenings have been extremely busy as well, reflecting that class music can happen locally... as ever you just have to know where its going down...

Coupled with this there also seems to be a bit of momentum happenning locally with Glenn Tilbrrok and the Fluffers pushing a series of surprise gigs at the Anchor and Hope which have been sublime, and the British Oak is offering some really great acts this month
