The Punches are a family musical group nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, calling Fredericktown, Missouri, home. Mom and dad, as well as their twin girls, Brooke and Emily, all play instruments and sing. The two sons, Graham and Owen, are each married and perform with the family on occasion. The Punch family has been performing nationwide at churches, festivals, fairs and other venues since 2009. Additionally, they’ve been featured weekly on "Great American Gospel" and "Great American Bluegrass" on over 200 stations across America.

The Punches are fun and uplifting, and their performance is strong and encouraging. Everyone loves families and the mere feat of these four traveling and performing together is powerful to witness. You’re sure to love The Punches.
