Tom Carver, audience member & music lover: ‘Another entertaining gig at The Golden Star, Norwich on 2/12/2018. “The Girl Behind the Bar” could have been a Pogues song but was written by Tim Lane.’

Norwich Eye, review of Crude Apache’s 2018 summer show, At the Turning of the Tide, with songs and music from the Punch House Band (23 July 2018): ‘The show starts and finishes with a song, and the lively musical interludes help to tell the story throughout.  The Punch House Band who give the musical backdrop to this show are all Crude Apache stalwarts who help to keep the pace of the show just right.’

Liz Armstrong, landlady, The Freemasons’ Arms, Norwich: ‘The band played at our pub on the 2nd December [2017], this was a return booking following their excellent visit here in March. They are an excellent acoustic band singing both original and well known folk songs, they are a friendly, lively band who promote a brilliant atmosphere and enjoyment for all the customers in the pub and we will be booking them again later on this year.’

The Harnser, Cley, landlady/booker: the Punch House Band ‘were brilliant. Thanks for making it such a great night!… Go and see them. they’re absolutely brilliant!’

Jon Knight, Norwich Beer Festival entertainment manager: ‘Really glad that I booked Punch House Band [for Norwich Beer Festival at St Andrew’s Hall], good hire price and a very good audience response to their stage show, plus the er “tribute” to the Singing Postman which had a local reference but caught a wider audience.’

Milkmaid Folk Club, Bury St Edmunds, organiser: ‘some excellently written original material, all delivered with real energy and obvious enthusiasm for the job in hand. Quality musicianship and a great stage presence combined to provide a most entertaining show.’
