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 is a four piece rock and roll act formed in the fall of 2010 by Addison Chase (vocals, guitar) and Pat Hopkins (lead guitar) Mike Penney (drums) and Alex Ferrero (bass). Addison, Pat and Alex grew up together in a small town in New Hampshire playing in bands as kids and the lifelong camaraderie between the members can be felt in their live performances.  Musically, Dressed for the Occasion can best be described as rock and roll with a heavy influence in old time country and blues, but over the years their sound has developed into a style all its own. Dressed for the Occasion is often described as a band that "transcends genres" and has steadily gained a fan base that subscribes to anything from punk rock to old time classics.
