You may know Dreadnaught (comprised of bassist Bob Lord, drummer Rick Habib, and guitarist Justin Walton) as the funky fun house band for Writers on a New England Stage or from the countless shows and records they’ve made since their formation in 1996. With more notes than you can shake a stick at, the ever-evolving band has carved out a musical niche unlike any other, blending the best of blues, prog-rock, and funk.

“Dreadnaught’s seemingly endless talents and eccentricities have not only stood the test of time, but continue to grow.” — The Sound

“One of the best-kept secrets of the whole U.S. progressive rock scene.” — Dutch Progressive Rock Page

“Imagine Phish after each member of the band downed seven Red Bulls. Or, King Crimson, but more intense. Or, Dream Theater, though with more fusion and jazz. Then, add them all together, hit turbo, and you might come close to the beauty that is Dreadnaught, but probably not.” — Progarchy
