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? Where did that go?

Well, we’re not quite sure where May went — another gig-filled month for us and already we’re into June!

Our last gig at the Pelton Arms was on 30th May; that venue is getting busier ever time we play and we now have (at least) one Sunday gig there a month and one a Cattelya’s so please check our gig list so you don’t go to the wrong one.

Once again we’re playing for the Greenwich Parksfest. We started at the East Greenwich Pleasaunce on 6th June and despite heavy rain being forecast it was a beautiful balmy afternoon and very well attended too. Our next one is over at Avery Hill Park on July 10th 12-5pm. There might be some misty eyes from Mike and Dave who both used to attend the college before it became Thames Poly or even Greenwich University. And yes that was so long ago that there were dinosaurs in the park (well, at least some punks!). These are great family events and so long as the weather holds are a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

As to the rest of June, we’re back at the Pelton Arms on the 13th (7-10pm) then Cattelya’s on 27th (8-11pm). Our bassist Ben will be off gigging in Finland so Gus Glen will be filling his shoes. It’ll be a bit of a reunion as it’ll be the first time the ‘original’ Los Dawsons (Mike, Dave and Gus) will have played at Cattleya’s for many a year. Don’t miss that one.

Thanks for all your support and see you soon!
