A Hard Rocking band that hails from Cleveland/ Akron, Ohio
A Punch’s Pilot was brought together through years of experience and a brotherhood established by three local talented musicians playing in and around the Cleveland music scene. A Punch’s Pilot members have been hitting it hard over the past decade and through their hard work and sheer determination to succeed, they have become a well-respected force in our rock and roll community.
Mark Garrett, is our multi-talented vocalist, who also plays lead guitar and bass. As a young boy he was introduced to playing music by his uncles who taught him to play drums, guitar and bass . During his teenage years, he became a member of several local bands in and around his hometown of Akron, OH. He ran into Al Periandri in 2008, playing a battle of the bands in Cleveland, OH and that was where the idea of A Punch’s Pilot was born.
Adam "Jersey Boy" Delmar, joins A Punch's Pilot from Audubon, New Jersey. Raised in the Philadelphia rock scene, he was inspired by the bands 40 Below Summer, Flaw and Ill Nino. Jersey Boy always knew his guitar playing was his calling from a young age and while following bands around the country he discovered the band, D-Rail. Jersey Boy enjoyed them so much he started travelling to Cleveland, OH to see the shows as a fan . He became good friends with the drummer, Al Periandri. When D-Rail broke up, members, Al Periandri and Mark Garrett created A Punch's Pilot and asked Jersey Boy to audition for the guitar position. Jersey Boy has been playing rhythm guitar and providing strong backing vocals since the beginning and he is now ready to take his music to the next level.
Al Periandri aka Tackle Box, drummer and percussionist. He has been the driving force behind A Punch’s Pilot since inception and has his own unique style and sound that is unmatched. Al has been playing in the Cleveland music scene most of his life and has made himself a local household name. Al has performed in several local Cleveland rock bands including D-Rail. Growing up on the streets of Cleveland’s west side, Al never had an easy road, but he took that experience and against all odds succeeded and is on his way to musical greatness with A Punch’s Pilot.
In 2016 A Punch’s Pilot was signed by Rudy Records from Springfield, Massachusetts, and Al, Mark and Adam are primed and ready to create some major waves in the local and national music scene.
