Simone Felice Sits in with Dawes

Los Angeles’ Dawes have performed with a number of legendary musicians this year, including Jackson Browne, Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm and Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench. Last night at Hoboken, NJ’s Maxwell’s, however, the rising roots act performed with a younger Americana songwriter.

Near the end of Dawes’ set, former Felice Brothers member—and Duke & the King founder—Simone Felice emerged for a surprise appearance. Felice led the members of Dawes through his own “Radio Song” and, in reference to the band’s sing-along “When My Time Comes,” exclaimed, “their time has come.” Dawes gave fans an extra few songs at the end of their set and pushed through their songlist without leaving for an encore. The group will return to Maxwell’s tonight.

Thanks for a great night, bioys! Though it was my very first time seeing you, I had a great time dancing…now it’s time for me to learn all your souloful lyrics. I have been enjoying both albums. Good luck to you all and hope to see you again, perhaps with my boy Jackson :)

Thanks, boys, for a great night! Though it was my first time ever hearing your music, I had a great time. I was persuaded into buying both of your records, as I was enjoying dancing all night to your songs. Now, I look forward to learning your soulful lyrics. Best of luck to you, and, hopefully, I’ll see you agin with my favorite guy, Jackson :)

Check out Lelia Broussard and Greg Holden’s cover of When My Time Comes on Youtube. Dawes loves it and tweeted it.
