Poochamungas / Bio

Born out of the Old Town School of Folk Music then fledging musician John Joyce went to take some harmonica classes and ended up taking a bunch of guitar lessons. After meeting a bunch of interested musicians(Don, Alton and Pete), mastering 3 chords, writing some lyrics that amused his daughter, a father son drummer exchange and finally forming a band! The Poochamungas went on to record Mud, Mommies and Mayhem in 2010 which won a NAPPA Award and played a bunch of gigs (block parties to festivals) the next few years. They are now in the studio finishing their follow up CD titled Block Party (to be released Summer 2013). Musically diverse rockin’ angst free music is their goal at every show. The Poochamungas believe that good music should know no ages and they rock out for audiences big and small. Singing, dancing and general silliness is the rule of the day when this band comes to play!
