Uncle PunchDenver’s Premier Hard Rock Power Trio
The band came together in late 2015. Stu and Scott were assembling a group with two other members when the original bass player had a family issue that required him to leave. The original singer had met Darrin somehow and he came over to check things out. Stu, Scott, and Darrin jelled so well, that the original singer bailed out and the rest is history as the band became a power trio. The members all had their formative roots in what is now known as classic rock back when it was really happening in the late 70’s. All were in various bands and then family and work life became a priority in the 90’s, so music was moth-balled but the love of classic rock never died. In fact, it has new life in the form of Uncle Punch.
