Dotson has opened for legendary performers like BB King, Willie Nelson, The Beach Boys, Huey Lewis and The News, as well as modern artists like Matt Nathanson, The Band Perry, Edwin McCain, and The Lone Bellow. He has been named Des Moines’ “Best Local Musician” for two consecutive years by City View magazine. Dotson has sustained his career for 15 years including the release of four original albums, one of which, his latest release of Tumblin reached #24 on the iTunes Rock charts. He has done this all with no label or management.
Damon Dotson has performed for some very impressive events! Besides his list of legendary opening slots, he has also played for a millennial athlete. Dotson was invited to play for the Bo Jackson #FillYourGrill event in Auburn, AL for the Iron Bowl. Bo Jackson attended the event and said he really enjoyed Dotson’s performance. A huge thrill for Damon is when he was asked to sing “Happy Birthday” to Bo Jackson! He has also sang “America The Beautiful” on the floor of the House of Representatives at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. He is only one of two people to share this honor; the other being world renowned opera singer Simon Estes. He has sung the National Anthem at national sporting events at Hilton Collesium in Ames, IA; Wells Fargo arena in Des Moines, IA; and TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, NE. Damon Dotson and his band have played big time summer events such as Dotson’s own “LAKE AFFECT” on Lake Okoboji, The Iowa State Fair, Des Moines 80/35 Festival, Jasper Winery, and National Balloon Classic in Indianola, IA.
