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...

Well we have been fairly busy, we have played a few festivals and we are still running the open mic at the Pelton Arms in Greenwich - which in my opinion is the best live music pub in Greenwich. Notable wonderful musicians who have sat in over the last year include Emma Jane, Mancie Baker and Graham Okey to name a few and any I have not included here will be on a roll of honour here at Christmas as there are too many great acts to put in this posting alone..

Well were doing a few gigs, and weve had some great people joining us over the last few months, we are still running the bit in the middle and it works well most of the time - we need more musicians to sit in with - you lot are not usually backwards in coming forward.. any way we have a couple of gigs coming up - try and see us if you can.. next gig features Jim Kimberley on sticks who is awesome ( Bruise, William Topley, Mish Mash Band, and Knopfler and Squeeze back in the day..) so we are looking forward to that - Dana is filming so the grease paint beckons.. we are hoping that our mate Dennis Greaves will join us and maybe a few other associates - its like a party Im going to spring some unusual numbers on people too I think, and next week we are at the awesome Duke which is a great pub and they like Dancing - hopefully Dave Suich from the ukes can make it down - we like like him as well...
