The Dalmatians are Jonny DC Bolan and Wil Allen, both with extensive performing experience coming from rock bands in Sydney and southeast NSW respectively. We love Australian music. The Dalmatians use two vocals, acoustic guitars, Bouzouki and harmonica to create a warm groove around a mix of toe-tapping classics, modern pop songs and woody ballads. Depending on the occasion, we can also come with backup singers, electric guitar and percussion.
Wil has a strong and genuine vocal delivering the original emotion of the songs and he has the stamina and professionalism for encores and requests. Jonny is a unique guitarist player and smooth backup vocalist, accurate in his recasting of original guitar licks but also intuitive the interpretation required to suit the two- piece situation. With their easy-going demeanours, eons of experience and long play list, Wil and Jonny will adapt to your scene, fit into your room and come to your audience.
Nearly half of the songs we do are Australian. Great Aussie line-ups we cover include Five Seconds Of Summer, Powder Finger, Goyte, Silverchair, Pete Murray, Paul Kelly, Crowded House, The Sunny Boys, The Church, AC/DC and Hunters & Collectors. The international rock department is covered with Ed Sheeran, One Direction, George Ezra, Portugal The Man, Snow Patrol, Oasis, The Cure, The Verve, Green Day and U2. In the mellow and meaningful department their repertoire includes Coldplay, Jack Johnson, REM, Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan and in blues rock we cover great acts such as The Black Keys, Ben Harper and Jimi Hendrix. The Dalmatians also have a fun originals set that will pleasantly surprise you. When it gets late, don’t worry, The Dalmatians have those end-of-night singalong numbers to send your guests on their merry way.
The Dalmatians come with their own PA system or we can connect into an existing system. The Dalmatians are here!
