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...

May Day Weekend and we are at Cattleyas 2 May 9pm

Its a typical long weekend holiday - mixed then ghastly weather, tonight we are back to our normal quartet line up which should be fun as Volcanic Ash paid havoc with quite a few musicians we know, strandings in Africa and Japan, cancelling gigs in Norway so all in all, to quote "Have I got news for you" there were winners and losers, so we were lucky to keep playing under these circumstances, thank you Dennis and Gus for your help here...

All that behind us we have some interesting gigs this month, more work at the Pelton and The Canal Tavern in Gravesend next weekend and we are chasing work in Sydenham and potentially Smithfield as well - lets see what the outcome is...
