ABOUT

Run and Punch is a female-fronted 6 piece ska band from Chicago, Illinois. Their unique blend of aggressive pop punk hooks, soulful vocals, and catchy horn lines push the boundaries of third wave ska. Influences range from Catch-22 and Alkaline Trio to Ella Fitzgerald and even music from Little Shop of Horrors.

Run and Punch formed in 2010, but they've been playing around the midwest since their high school days. Run and Punch has rocked venues such as the Beat Kitchen, Double Door, Triple Rock, and even Soldier Field.

Run and Punch is on a mission to create and perform music they love while bringing as many people along for the ride as possible. Their live performances practically demand crowd interaction, whether in the form of dancing or call and response sing-alongs.
