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 past, A Charity do, Some Pictures and interesting gigs in the future…..

I suddenly realised that it was a long time since I had posted to the blog, we have had a busy summer, playing outdoors quite a bit, establishing the Pelton Gigs on a Sunday evening, doing a few gigs out of town and finally playing at the City & Guilds Pakistan Flood Relief charity bash in Smithfield which raised c £1000 so that was a very good cause.

Weve just had some new publicity shots taken and we are pleased with the initial results, whilst sadly I don’t look in my twenties, not even the fabulous photographer Mr Burrluck can do that, but the band at least looks interesting; potentially a kind of cross between Get Carter/a slightly demented looking Klesmer band and us…..

The next month should be fun as we are playing at the British Oak, Cattleyas The Pelton and a great pub in rural Kent. Were rather hoping that Mr Tilbrooks series of Tuesday gigs at the Hope & Anchor will start up again as they made Tuesday evening a real joy…
