Bio

John Ryan, lead singer, song-writer and guitarist, is originally from Corner Brook, now living in Lodge Bay, South Eastern Labrador. He has performed as a solo artist for many years, including at the Battle Harbour National Historic Site in Labrador.

Dale Kennedy, song-writer, backing vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, has played in numerous bands of different genres through the years, and is from Bird Cove, Northern Peninsula, Newfoundland.

Dave Jones has been playing the button accordion for many years in the province of Newfoundland & Labrador, Alberta, and his native Quebec. He hails from Blanc-Sablon.

They have been playing together for several years. Rompin' 'n' Stompin' was their first CD as The Puncheons."Hook'd" was released in 2014.

The enjoyment of jamming on Newfoundland Labrador traditional songs is what brought them together, and as long as they enjoy the music and musical performances, they plan to continue to record and do live performances.
