John is a local musician who grew up in Richland. He has been playing the guitar and writing songs since he was 14 years old. He's played and recorded mostly for Seattle bands. One of them was called The CombOvers, which is an ironic name since they were just young kids. In 2010 John decided to put together a band locally. That band, Double Tap, produced their first CD in 2011 and received airplay on Sirius XM satellite radio. Their song Trailer Queen was voted one of the top 10 songs in the Northwest in 2012. Double Tap toured throughout the Pacific Northwest.
In 2013 John started another Tri-Cities band, Leaves of Grass, an acoustic group that also played throughout the region and performed at Tumbleweed Music Festival. Karena Monte of Troupe De Soleil and Alex Koch were in that band. Lately John has been performing solo at local open mikes and musician showcases at Emerald of Siam and The American Legion jams hosted by Pamela Martin Thomas and at our own 3 Rivers Coffeehouse. He is excited to be the featured performer at the coffeehouse this month, and will be joined by his former band mate Alex Koch and possibly another friend. His dad, Jack Dawson, of The Early Birds and the Worm, will sit in on harmonica for a few numbers.
John is a very versatile musician whose favorite genres are blues, rockabilly, and Americana. His major influences are Rory Gallagher and the Reverend Horton Heat. He writes original songs and instrumentals, but also does some cover songs. You never know quite what to expect from John. Come out and support this local musician.
There will be an open mic to start the evening, with signs up beginning at 7PM, followed by John's performance. Suggested donation of $8/$6 Seniors and Students at the door, refreshments at intermission available by donation as well.
Hope to see you there!
