PUNCH was formed in 2007 by singer/song writer/guitarist John Velarde. He added bassist/backing vocalist Raul Rodriguez & Drummer Andrew Cordero as his "Rock Solid" Rhythm Section to complete this Power Trio. Because each member had extensive touring and recording experience, they immediately knew they had something special when they began working on their first, self-titled album "PUNCH" followed by a music video of their hit single "Blue Bird". They have been playing shows throughout Hollywood & the Los Angeles area and are currently working on their second album while they continue writing and playing live. Their influences are Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Elvis, and many others as is evident in their music as they mix old school "Good Time Rock n Roll" with a modern edge.

We hope that you all enjoy our music as much as we enjoy playing.
