Gianfranco, Corporate Event, Liverpool
Dawson supported our corporate event for the opening of the Hampton by Hilton Liverpool City Centre. An excellent pianist with great passion and enthusiasm for music. A very successful evening and the atmosphere his playing created was fantastic.

Kerrie Thompson, Radisson BLU, Liverpool
We have been booking Dawson for the weddings held here at the Radisson Blu Liverpool since 2011. He is great to deal with, very professional and always able to accommodate our requests! He is a wonderful pianist who makes such a difference to the atmosphere when the wedding guests are arriving into the hotel. He is very flexible and is happy to speak with the bride and groom before the day to discuss any requests they may have. I would highly recommend booking Dawson to anyone who needs a pianist for their wedding or event.
