Dawes and the Bahamas unite for streaming events

Famous Los Angeles-based rockers Dawes and GRAMMY® Award-nominated Canadian artist Bahamas are teaming up for a very special streaming event, set for Tuesday, November 15 at 8 p.m. (ET), exclusively via Mandolin.com. Filmed earlier this fall at Iowa City, IA’s historic Englert Theater during the collaborative “An Evening with Dawes and Bahamas” headlining tour, the concert event will see Dawes and the Bahamas join forces to perform two unique live sets, with Dawes supporting The Bahamas and the Bahamas then join Dawes for a one-of-a-kind joint performance. Tickets – which include on-demand replays for 72 hours after the broadcast ends – are available now HERE.

“I thought I was going into this thing with a future nemesis,” says Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith. “But I got out of it with a real friend. Between his good looks, his great tunes and his high regard for self-care, I was prepared to see my jealousy get the better of me. But he’s too inspiring a presence, too kind a soul, too open-hearted and collaborative as a musician.

“This trip, and the way we did it, will be a very fond memory in the Dawes history books. To everyone who came out, thank you. I’m so excited that we took some audio and video to share a little bit of what this trip was all about about. Please enjoy Dawhamas.”


“An Evening with Dawes and Bahamas” attracted sold-out houses and unanimous critical acclaim when it toured the US last September. “These two outfits – Dawes, as a group, and Afie Jurvanen, the man who plays as Bahamas – proved themselves to be like-minded men, gifted musicians and amazing storytellers through the honest and enduring songs they’ve created,” wrote Parklife DC. “Although it seemed almost too good to be true, it was as genuine and as rewarding as any fan of either band would have hoped it would be.” “The billing, even as cool as it looked on paper, didn’t do justice to the preparation for what unfolded in person,” NYS Music said. “Dawes and Bahamas switched songs seamlessly, in a way that didn’t feel like two bands at all, just one amazing band with two incredible songwriters. Jurvanen sang backup and harmonies for Goldsmith and Goldsmith the same for Jurvanen, their voices blending and complimenting each other as if they had been working towards this sound exclusively for years.”
