Continental Band — Known mostly for his time as founding guitarist of The Dropkick Murphys, Boston based rocker Rick Barton has spent the last five years fronting his current band and labor of love «Continental». Continental's sound is soulful rock n roll, plain and simple. While often compared to a variety of different bands, they like to summarize their style as «Paul Westerberg writing songs for The Rolling Stones,» a compliment they received and have remembered for years. «I wear my heart on my sleeve and prefer to sing about what's inside, rather than fast cars and shaking booty» says Rick.
Together with his son Stephen on bass, David Deprest on guitar, and Connor Colbert on drums, they have toured the US and Europe extensively as a headlining act, but also supporting bands such as Street Dogs, Reverend Horton Heat, Swingin' Utters, The Tossers, and The Business. Make no mistake, Continental is not a vanity project for Barton. When the band isn't on the road, the father and son team paint houses to support their «music addiction.»
With three releases to their credit thus far, the band has teamed up with North Carolina based record label Rusty Knuckles to put out their new album «Home on the Range.»
