About The Los Dawsons
- Mike Dearing
- 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...

The Dawsons and 2013
As we are ramping up for gigs this year, we are changing the complexion of our most established gig: The Pelton is going to me a more collaborative experience! We are inviting musicians to open mic the set in the middle, and then sit-in in the final set: last month we had a couple of performers join us: Leon Tilbrook sang two songs, then his father Glenn joined us, as did David and Loader for some lovely soul songs and a Dr Feelgood song for Wilko as part of our goodwill living memorial initiative for Wilko Johnson; so far 5 songs and counting: 30 yards behind (twice), roxette, she does it right and back in the night... Riot in cell block number 9 next or down by the jetty?
