Frontman of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Was the first person to perform the National Anthem at the New England Patriots’ new Gillette Stadium
Dicky Barrett was born the son of a cobbler in Squantum, Massachusetts. He is best known as the lead vocalist for Boston's nattily dressed Ska-Core band The Mighty Mighty Bosstones—who are best known for their smash hit "Knock on Wood."
Dicky has toured the globe with the Mighty Mighty Bosstones for the past two decades and has released nine studio albums with the band. He portrayed rock pioneer Bill Haley in the television miniseries Shake, Rattle, and Roll, has appeared and performed on the world's best television programs, has been in a movie or two, worked with Elmo from Sesame Street and is capable of asphalt-shingling a roof.
Barrett considers himself a dedicated father, a devout Catholic, and the announcer for Jimmy Kimmel Live. Not necessarily in that order.
