These four accomplished musicians push the envelope at every performance and audiences are rewarded with an experience that can only be described as "The Dawn Effect." Coupled with an equally adventurous light show, The Dawn concerts keep their dedicated and growing fanbase coming back for more.

Fresh off the heels of their fourth studio release Waiting For the Storm, 2014 has seen the Dawn play major festivals, including the inaugural Phases of the Moon, and has shared the stage with such acts as Widespread Panic,The String Cheese Incident, Govt Mule, Robert Randolph And the Family Band and Railroad Earth. Combined with high profile local gigs, the Dawn is turning many heads in the jam scene.

Members have had the opportunity to jam with legendary bluesmen including Billy Branch, Bernard Allison, and Chainsaw Dupont. The Harris Collection has been very successful in attracting younger fans to the great american art form called the Blues. The band continues to gain new fans daily and is currently #1 on Reverbnation.com blues charts for the Quad Cities area.
