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...

Dana Is back from South by South West

Jim Kimberley helped us out over the last 3 weeks - thanks Jim. And now Dana is back on sticks/skins etc... Danas old band Cotton Mather from Austin Texas have had their most famous CD Kontiki rereleased and repackaged via a process called kickstart, where a collection of people make donations for a rerelease.. amongst famous supporters of the band is Noel Gallagher.. he liked the band enough to put them on a world tour support with Oasis..

I have a copy of the new pressing and its awesome; Its like a cross between Odelay and Revolver, with bits of Squeeze, World Party, Neil Finn and the Fountains of Wayne added in for good measure.. as Dana plays with us hopefully Cotton Mather may come here to play ?

Other news is that Ben has turned his hand to some asian beat stuff which is doing well with Khiyo http://soundcloud.com/khiyoband/khiyo-amar-shonar-bangla-mp3 and his other outfit the Jezebel Quartet have pleased Craig Charles on his 6Music funk show with their new CD... Phils Icarus Club seems to be going from strength to strength in its new venue so all of the band seem to be doing well...
