The Dalmatians are Jonny DC Bolan and Wil Allen, both with extensive performing experience coming from rock bands in Sydney and southeast NSW respectively. The Dalmatians use acoustic guitars as well as created percussion, loop pedals and harmonica to create a warm groove around a mix of toe-tapping classics, modern pop songs and woody ballads.
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, accurate in his recasting of original licks but also intuitive in leading 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.
Australian line-ups they cover include Paul Kelly, Pete Murray, Crowded House, The Church, Powder Finger, Silverchair, and Hunters & Collectors. The international rock department is covered with George Ezra, Portugal The Man, Oasis, The Verve, U2, and even AC/DC. In the mellow and meaningful department their repertoire covers Coldplay, Jack Johnson, REM, Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan. Boy bands get a look in with One Direction and Five Seconds of Summer. In blues rock they cover great acts such as The Black Keys, Ben Harper and Jimi Hendrix. The Dalmatians also have an 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.
