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...

Gigs, Happenings, Functions Experiences et al...

We seem to have played quite a few gigs already this year... we have had a great start and broken some new venues in different areas, and played with quite a frequency at some of our favourite venues , we never expected to do so much pub music either - that has been a success - we have a set of regular dates at the Pelton Arms coming up, we have been approached by other venues and are hopeful the Whickam in Brockley finds us suitably enthralling...

The gigs we did with Glenn Tilbrook, Dennis Greaves, Mark Feltham and Lord Large at the Anchor and Hope have had a lot of hits on You Tube, and Dennis said he was pleased with the result - that is big praise as hes very discerning - search for the fabulous Snipturn on You Tube if you're interested as hes the fellow who put the fabulous vids together - a big thank you to Simon here..

As ever we are are regulars at Cattleyas, and our original Bass player Gus Glen was back from Switzerland and sat in with us - quite like old times... hes back for a bit so look out for him on the circuit as hes fun to watch... and Im certain you will see him sitting in with us now and again...
