Late '17 News 


* The Dawdlers are playing Silo's in Napa for the first time on Thursday, 12/28, and are really looking forward to bringing the holiday cheer to Napa (Tom'll have it in his trunk)! We want to make a splash with this one, so PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO, and if you haven't seen us in awhile, or ever, or indoors (we look even younger indoors), please come to this one, and ask your friends, neighbors, city council, bowling league, and knitting circle to come as well, as we'd like to get invited back, and consolidate Napa as another Near North Bay stronghold for the band (Eric Wood will be with us on the "skins" again that night - see below - and again there within 48 hours with Forejour!).   We hope to see a mess of you there!   P.S. We'll also be doing a brief RADIO SPOT promotion of the gig on Napa's KVYN next Friday, 12/22, at around 8:30 AM (a GREAT time to sing!), and the live feed that day can be heard HERE:   Read more

May Plays 

* A big week-end for me with local guitar heroes, I'll be down at Lucca tomorrow night, May 12th, playing a trio with Benicians Stef Burns & Jeff Campitelli (it's a one-off assembly and a great chance to see Stef play for free while he's briefly in town), then on Saturday back at the Clubhouse in Martinez at 6:30 PM doing the now occasional duo gig with Jeff Tamelier.

* The Dawdlers play at Wente on 5/28.
Should be a great setting, day and event.

  Hope to see you stageside, Seamus

New Song, Add'l April gigs 


New Song: Open Door 

I recently guested on a great new song & recording by Dawdler Tom, called Open Door (which will automatically play on our website), doing some sangin'.
Thanks for listening, and if you like it please FB Like it, and share it far & wide.

Cheers, Dawdler Jim

April, Come She Will 

I'm very happy to report that Drew and I will hitch up the Lennon & McCartney wagon again at least a couple of times this season, with our first public show happening next month, on April 20th, up in Lincoln, at Sun City (almost sold out already I'm both glad and sorry to say). To that end, you can read find out about that show and any other 2OU news at our NEW Facebook Page for the duo! (Found here:

September-Early October Shows 

* Thursday, September 15th, The Dawdlers 3.0 (i.e., now a quartet with percussionist Jeff Campitelli in our ranks) return to Kinder's in Benicia, next to the weekly farmer's market on 1st St., from 6-9 PM. Should still be nice weather.

* Sunday afternoon, October 2nd we'll again play the now and FINALLY beered-up Lucca Beer Garden (also on 1st St. in Benicia), from 1-4 PM, and closing out the 2016 Benicia World Tour! A great hang on a Sunday afternoon (and we're not bad, either). Lucca Bar & Grill, 439 First Street, Benicia, CA 94510 - 707.344.7096
Thursday, September 29th, Drew & I will make our first appearance at Silo's in Napa, 7 PM. We might be the only Lennon & McCartney tribute group around (anywhere, really), so come help us have a good maiden voyage there. We sing purdy good together, and it's Napa; how can you lose?

* On Saturday, October 8th, I'll play solo again here in my Martinez backyard, at The Clubhouse Grill, 6:30-9:30 PM, with perhaps a guest sit-in or two (one never knows). 528 Center Ave., Martinez, CA (925) 957-6908

Upcoming Solo Shows 

Have a couple of shows coming up where I'll play all by myself, (very unusual these days):
  • One is a slightly last minute thing, tomorrow night, Saturday, July 16th, here in my Martinez backyard, at The Clubhouse Grill, 6:30-9:30 PM. They started music recently on Saturdays, and have asked me to fill the empty slot. I figured I can't beat the commute, and this gives me a chance to dust off my Cat Stevens, James Taylor and other mothballed tunes. So, if you live in Contra Costa and like sports

Shows in June & July 

* NEXT Thursday, June 23rd, The Dawdlers return to Kinder's in Benicia, next to the weekly farmer's market on 1st St., from 6-9 PM, but, in our midst this time will be Benician and well known whacker of objects in time (long time drummer of Joe Satriani's), Mr. Jeff Campitelli.  Yayyy!  Then..... 

* Sunday afternoon, July 17th The (Campitelli enhanced) Dawdlers will play a brand new music venue, also on 1st St. in Benicia, the Lucca Beer Garden, outdoors, from about 2:30 - 5:30 (give or take a half-hour - firm time TBD), in what we hope will be the first of many performances there. It should be a really nice venue, with a beautiful setting, and great afternoon light, a nice raised stage, an outdoor cabana bar, etc. Should be one of the better spots we play, and one of the better places for musicians to play, in general. 

(If you're inclined to see any upcoming shows, we'd be grateful to see you at this one, as it's a great spot and we'd like to make a strong first showing.)
