Customer questions

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

The Dawsons do provide DJ services to work around your needs for the event. We can offer a simple plug in and play-playlist to set the mood before or in-between sets (free of charge) or we offer a full DJ set for an added fee (please enquire for pricing).

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We provide our own PA system and microphones for your event. We do need to be located near a power source, however we do not require too much room so can be positioned wherever suits your needs best at your event.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We do offer a request service where we can learn songs that do not currently appear on our setlist. There is an added charge for this service and is subject to time as it takes a time to learn new material. This is all negotiable in your consultation with us prior to booking.

From customers:

Stephen P, 4 years ago

"The Dawsons are a fantastic band, great musicians, great fun and great for any party. We booked them for the Peckham Festival and the opening celebrations of our new building and they MADE both occasions. Can't recommend them highly enough."

Genevieve, 3 years ago

"We booked The Dawsons for our summer party and they were absolutely brilliant - everyone loved them and had them up dancing and singing along. A wonderfully talented and professional group of young musicians!"
