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...

A busy old time.... and a new face

Id like to introduce a new member of the extended Los Dawson family; Dana Myzer drummed with us at the last two quartet gigs; the British Oak 30 January and Glenn Tilbrooks and Dennis Greaves special surprise gig last Tuesday at the Anchor and Hope. All our regular drummers were busy so that says something about good drummers and quality acts in the current musical market - they are distinctly at a premium...

Dana blew our socks off! Originally from Austin Texas, he is now resident in our fair borough. He has a tremendous musical heritage having been the drummer in the powerpop act Cotton Mather (who had a couple of big hits in the 1990s and supported Oasis round the world). He can play anything we threw at him (rather brilliantly) and the fellow didn’t have a rehearsal either... We were extremely pleased... Big UP for Dana..

On a completely different note - see whether you can catch Dave Burrluck (our illustrious classical guitarist) at the One day Cafe in Plumstead 5 February playing with the Dos Rosas trio, kicking off about 8pm http://www.onedaycafe.org.uk/events.htm
