composer and multi-instrumentalist Trip Dawkins
Trip Dawkins played tenor saxophone in his high school jazz band, and started performing in 1985 at church services at the University of Southwestern Louisiana as a vocalist, flutist, and guitarist. His first solo performance was at The Penny Post in New Orleans. Following three successful performances at L'Estaminet in Mons, Belgium, he returned to the US, and joined his first band, The Naked Groove, as bassist. After the band broke up, he began work on his first CD "T-Dog" playing all instruments, including a Moog Opus 3. T-Dog was followed by Confitures, a collection of songs mostly in French. A collaboration with "Coach" yielded a collection of original and traditional Tex-Mex mostly in Spanish followed by live performances as a duo in San Antonio, Texas. He took a 10 year hiatus, and returned to recording with all new equipment in 2015, recording The Dude That Is after choosing from musical ideas accumulated over the years.
