Associations

The first Lou Rawls Fan Club of record was started by Lon Dorsey in 1975 in Dallas Texas at Charlie Gamblos' Oyster Bar Restaurant in Downtown Dallas, where Lon did live performing with the jukebox in the "Shell Lounge" upstairs above the restaurant which was run by relative uncle Buddy Gilstrap.

From there when the Oyster Bar closed, Lon started doing Lou Rawls Tributes in 1977 at the Plush Pup Club located at 3100 Grand Avenue in Dallas, Tx. He also did performances of Lou Rawls music at the famous Green Parrot Club after hours, located on Forest Avenue (now MLK, Jr. Blvd) in Dallas, Texas.

Lon and Lou Rawls became friends in the late 1970's and were seen together numerous times at restaurants and performances. Fans marveled at how much the two men favored facially and how they sounded alike too.

Lon became a close friend of Lou Rawls, and the two talked on the phone frequently, Lou Rawls provided free box seats to Lon any time that he requested, and Lon and Lou became just like family. Lon is also like family with much of Lou's family to this day, and everybody loves Lon!

Lon Dorsey is also the premiere singer of Lou Rawls music in the U.S. overall for many years, exclusively. In other words, Lou Rawls music is the only artist that he's done for decades, as everyone knows. This has placed him in a wonderful position for his caring about the music of Lou for so long.

Meet Lon Dorsey on Facebook, get his take on Lou Rawls and his music, and where they all go from there!
