"St Patty's Day at Church of Boston"

“I would compare this band to a cross between The Sadies meets The Supersuckers country album meets the humor of Ween and a dash of Tom Waits. A little bit of that rock n roll mixed with clever country Riffs and sick basslines. They are all dressed in what I would call fancy outfits for a Boston band, not taking themselves seriously and not afraid laughs were infectious with this 4 piece straight out of Boston. Couldn’t get enough of this act and the response from the crowd was welcoming as they seem to want more even after the band was finished. I personally will be watching this band in the future.” - RSLBlog.com


Dressed for the Occasion: Suit & Tie (2011)



Occasionally, amidst the murky waters of rock music, a blazing light will emerge from the depths to show us that despite the muck and the mud, there is still a hopeful place where the river still runs strong.

Dressed for the Occasion was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in the summer of 2010 by Singer Addison Chase, lead guitarist Patrick Hopkins, bassist Alex Ferrero, and Drummer Michael Penney. Addison came to Boston in hopes of completing an acoustic album produced by Hopkins and, in a twist of fate, sparked the wildfire that would come to be known as “Dressed for the Occasion”.
Rooted in classics like Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Hank Williams, and The Doors, each individual member brought their own powerful mix of taste and style to the table, and created a sound that can only be described as a thunder storm of originality.
With their ground shaking performances, flashy attire, unique and memorable lyrics, and classic rock soul the band’s success grew fast. They began opening for world renowned acts like The Vibrators and The Hudson Falcons, played in clubs throughout the city like The Middle East and TTtheBears, and before long won the “Boston Battle of the Bands” offering a grand prize of a full-day studio session with which they recorded their first full-length album self-titled “Dressed for the Occasion”.
Since 2010 DFTO has rocked stages all over New England, and will forever continue to forge their way through the iron doors of rock n’ roll.
