Don't Fear the Water
Hand on the Row
With a sound that falls somewhere between head-banging rock and foot-stomping blues, Dreadnot is a band comprised of five 20-somethings who live for good times and great music. Rooted in RVA (Richmond, VA), each of their intricately-crafted originals runs deep with echoes of home and the music they grew up on. With a sound that hearkens to soul, heavy blues and hard rock, Dreadnot’s influences range from Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix to Highly Suspect and Metallica.
Dreadnot is a full band revival of an acoustic project started by guitarists Matt Minor and Michael Patton in 2009 that has seen huge success on YouTube, achieving over a million views and racking up thousands of subscribers.
From hazy high school weekends to cloudy college nights, all five members share a friendship forged by time, music and late nights. That chemistry has brewed a unique sound that fuses crunchy riff-driven rock, punchy drum beats and smooth melodic vocals.
