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...

Activity Activity OXJAM GREENWICH

After a few less gigs than normal, (due mainly to Mike Dearings non working fretting hand after slipping a disk..) we are now back on the road again...

We are looking forward to the Oxjam headliner on Saturday 19 November which should be fun.. it is at the Duke in Creek Road Greenwich Deptford borders - I cannot remember the last time I gigged there.. I think it was when Erich Hofer was still the landlord so it must have been some time ago..

Upcoming Gigs...

After a busy first couple of months, last month was quiet for us - just the 2 gigs; though this month we see some new venues, returning to old favourites in Battersea and Gravesend, and a showcase at the Sydenham Blues Club which has a sterling reputation for hosting great acts... So try to catch us in April... Were looking forward to a busy month...
