Introducing THE DAWKS

“Naming a band is hard, like, really hard.” says Bevan Thomas, lead guitarist in The Dawks. The local Hamilton band, previously called Red Zebra, was adamant that their new name had to be unique. An extensive internet search was carried out on every name suggested. Bevan rolls his eyes. “Most band names have been taken by some band, at some time, somewhere in the world,” he says.

The band eventually chose The Dawks as it ticked a lot of boxes. It’s short and snappy. It’s not too serious. It starts with ‘THE’ like a proper band. And best of all… No other band in the world has it!

Onstage, The Dawks mix originals and covers together. They have a raw punk energy, but play a variety of material from the 60s through to the 90s. If you’re interested, keep an eye out as they have a couple of gigs booked for down-town Hamilton. The first gig is scheduled for Saturday, April 9 at the Nivara Lounge.

The Dawks are Bevan Thomas (guitar), Stuart Bathan (guitar), Michael Switzer (bass) and Wayne Barnett (drums). They are also haunted by the ghost of Elizabeth Glass who may someday rejoin them.
