ABOUT THE POUNDERS:
Its all about songs, and The Pounders deliver relevant music, with a melody and a beat. Dick Coulson, John Christy, Michael Perantoni and Jim Amann lived through many musical incarnations, including record contracts with A&M and Polygram, before uniting as The Pounders. Together, they bring an unmistakable sound that can only be described as "The Pounders".

The unique Pounders sound is both rhythmic and melodic, with powerful, hook-laden original songs. The Pounders are a musical experience, blending get-to-the-point song craft, rich harmonies and a tight rhythmic pulse.

Onstage, The Pounders display an amazing chemistry, that draws in the audience. If youre interested in discovering some new music thats fun to listen to, see The Pounders.
