He is a full -time member of Ed Kuepper and The Aints, Tijuana Cartel & Low Down Riders and previously Caravana Sun & Hot Potato Band.  He has released three acclaimed jazz albums as bandleader/composer for The Dilworths, Tiny Hearts and Viata. He has also performed with Ásgeir, Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy and Nigel Kennedy among others. 

The Po’Boys are the beginning of a new creative phase for Dilworth, bringing together his experiences in these diverse styles to create danceable, social music for everyone. The EP is released on March 11 and available at www.eamondilworth.com and on all online platforms. They will be celebrating its release with the following shows:

Listen & Watch

The music was sensational & the connection & rapport you built with the audience was just amazing, so much fun! You got the whole bar rocking, laughing & singing along - even me, & I never, ever sing in public!! Speaking for myself, I can honestly say that was the best night out I've had for ages - & I go out a LOT!”
