After an excellent couple of nights Live music from Lonehead and Straight Shooter to a lower than expected turnouts - which is sometimes a little hard to take especially with the calibre of what was on offer for £5 entry, constantly promoted and pushed by yours truly thro every medium that's cost effective - hey it is a business after all and no we canny afford to advertise on the telly....... We dust ourselves off tho and gear up for another cracking weekend not to be missed.
I know I always say that but it's true !
So to the remaining gigs of June 2018 at Dreadnoughtrock.
FRIDAY 22 JUNE - STONEFACE and SAINTS of ARCADIA. This is a rescheduled gig from the Beast from the East scuppered this excellent show from happening. Stoneface from Glasgow have appeared a good few times and just get better and more dynamic each time. If you haven't yet caught the guys then getting 45 mins of these guys is worth the fiver alone. Saints of Arcadia are simply amazing at what they do. Original materialso intense and technical you are left dazed and amazed all in one. They've played to crowds as large as 50,000 people supporting some top top bands across the globe with some songs even popping up in Sega Games. Again for £5 you would be a mug to pass up the chance to see these guys knock out some might fine tunes.
SATURDAY 23 JUNE - regarded as one if not THE top tribute to Bryan Adams are coming to Dreadnoughtrock we had to reschedule this one as well as some guy called Bryan from Canada decided to play the same night originally as Bryan McAdams were set to play in Glasgow in May !! What a cheek and never even checked our schedule. Tickets are still available at our outlets and online in the run up to this one. The set is close to 2 and a half hours so at £10 a ticket amazing value even more so when that includes entry to the rock club that costs £5 after 11pm. So what ye waiting on - GO get a ticket. Full info at http://www.dreadnoughtrock.com/ticketsales.html
FRIDAY 29 JUNE - Dirty Betty has been rockin nearly as long as we have playing some mighty fine Rock, Roll, RnB. Now featuring Glyn Holloway on lead vox your in for a wee treat with a band making their Dread debut. £3@door as well ! I know its just mental sometimes.
SATURDAY 30 JUNE - The Rockfiend Scotland 50th Bash. Mrs Rockfiend - Suzy turns 50 and it's a pleasure to host a night of Rock tunage for her and the Rockfiend team who have been reviewing, writing and snapping about many an epic night at Dreadnoughtrock and elsewhere. Live music from the Voice of The King Lot - Mr Jason Sweeney along with VICE from Manchester who will tone it doon a wee bit from their hard hitting Rock Originals and play some covers as well. Its open to ALL and just £5 to come along and join in the LAST GIG of June at Scotlands Longest Running Rock Club.
Hope to see you there. If I don't I'll hire Liam Neeson and he'll no be long in finding you and get you in rocking with us.
MAKE SURE you check JULY and AUGUST

The Mid way point of June at Dreadnoughtrock
Always a difficult one to gauge when the Download weekend hits the Dread what to put on with some heading away to the Download exploits or those not going thinking it'll be quiet so don't bother heading out, also when massive Rock Gods hit Scotland with many spending triple figures for tickets etc etc BUT I have to say what another cracking weekend to miss if you decided to stay in or be elsewhere. Superb set from the QUO HEAVY TRAFFIC lads on Friday and triple header with Darkness Devine headlining Saturday night coupled to two rocking nights upstairs in the Rock Club.
Two weekends down in June with THREE still to come in June not to be missed. Hope to see you at one of these crackers and if you can't make it please share it around as you never know what one of your friends might !!
FRIDAY 15 JUNE - LONEHEAD. Rock Covers and Originals from a top band that has over Twenty THOUSAND likes on facebook. When you consider the likes of The Quireboys have 25 thousand likes on facebook I hope it gives you an idea how good these guys are and well worth coming in to see especially at just £5 entry - Tickets available online and on the door on the night. Mind ALL Vips go free for this one as well. Doors 7pm On Stage approx 8.45-11pm then Rock Action in the club till 3am. https://www.facebook.com/loneheadband/ One of the lads Original Tunes.
The awesome FREE and BAD Co Tribute return to the Dread for the SIXTH year on the trot chalking up over double figures playing with us that always proves a hit. Due to their popularity it's getting harder to find a date for them to come back and play so you HAVE TO MAKE THE MOST of it anytime they feature in our schedule. You could say that about any band to be honest as "I'll catch them the next time" might not be an option unless your crystal balls work better than mine.
It's a £5 entry - Tickets are online and On the Door. Gold Vip's Go free for this one.
Doors 7pm On Stage approx 8.45-11pm then Rock Action in the club till 3am.
Here's a wee video from a few years ago.
FRIDAY 22 JUNE.
