The Sunday Punchers

Name: The Sunday Punchers

Country: South Africa

Formed in: 2010

Status: Inactive

The Sunday Punchers were a Celtic folk punk rock and roll muck up. Traditional Irish music, as well as deep rooted South African folk have a lot in common in terms of music styles. A couple of guys, some from Irish/Scottish heritage and others from their deep rooted Afrikaans heritage decided to do away with their noisy punk rock riffs and look a little deeper into their roots. The Sunday Punchers first set sail on their journey in mid 2010, with only two members. The first year was not smooth sailing, the waters of the South African music industry for a new band are not the easiest to navigate, with financial problems and commitment issues a few members where lost. In early 2011, the original Punchers knew that they needed some new crew. The Band released debut album in 2014.
