"Band of the Week - Governing Murphy"

Introducing GOVERNING MURPHY...

Governing Murphy is an original rock band out of Bethlehem, Pa. After years of playing the cover band scene, Murph and Wally Govern decided to start writing their own music. After compiling several songs and recording them, their fan base wanted more. Murph and Wally wanted a drummer that could bring out the dynamics of their guitar driven music. So, after his split with a local cover band, Murph brought in hard hitting drummer, Bill Caufman. Realizing they were about to hit the music scene hard they needed a bassist to match so they found someone that was equally as crazy as the rest of them, Ringo Short.

Wally Govern III - guitar/lead vocals
Murph - Lead guitar
Ringo Short - Bass/vocals

A. We sound like nobody else around.
B. We genuinely have fun and have a bond that everyone can be a part of.
C. We're entertaining to watch and our songs have a certain familiarity to them.

Question 2: What are three future goals/visions for Governing Murphy?
A. To get a good, quality product (cd) out very soon for our fans!!
B. To expand our fan base by playing more shows, larger shows and shows outside of our home area.

Bio

Governing Murphy is an original rock band. Although the members are from different areas of NEPA, the band originated out of Bethlehem, PA.

Murph has been playing in cover bands with a few originals for several years but he had one goal he needed to fulfill...write his own music. By the end of 2011 Murph made the decision to do just that. After laying down a few songs on guitar he went and found good friend Wally Govern, who was playing in a local cover band. He knew Wally's was the voice he needed for the music he wanted to put out there. After several months of laying down songs some life changing events put their goal on hold. Wally had a beautiful baby girl and Murph lost the one person that showed him music, rock 'n' roll and his best friend...his Mom.

They quickly got back on their feet. Murph and Wally decided it was time to make their dream a reality. Murph heard that good friend and drummer Bill Caufman recently left a local band so he gave him a call. Bill showed up at the studio, listened and played a few of the songs and he was hooked. Things started coming together very quickly from that point. The three started to become one, writing new songs and even getting show offers. Just one thing was missing; a bass player.

After a long search Murph called old band-mate Ringo Short. Murph asked Ringo to learn Governing Murphy's music to fill in for a show or two but after showing up for one rehearsal, Ringo was addicted.

It's real simple, Governing Murphy is guitar-driven rock 'n' roll with chest pounding drums. Wally will bring you to your knees with his voice and Ringo brings the funk on bass.
