Bio

Murphys Kids live to rock. Their goal is to bring everyone into the experience from the folks at the bar to the fans up front. The rhythm section of guitar, bass, and drums thumps out the backbone while the horn section lays their smooth runs on top. Its all complimented by the dual vocal of Attaway and Charlet whos socially-savvy and anthemic melodies help everything to fall into place. The boys havebeen together for six years and have been making booties shake and fists pump all along the way. They have played every all-ages club in Richmond and have completed three full tours of the east coast and the southeast. They have been a featured artist for two years running on the SouthernSka Tour hosted by Southernska.com. They have also recorded and released three CDs that have been met with enthusiasm and have sold accordingly. They have headlined and supported at an array of venues. Club owners and promoters in and around the Richmond area continue to find how well MK works on bills with bands of regional and international fame such as Less Than Jake, the Suicide Machines, the Toasters, the Slackers, Fighting Gravity, Voodoo Glow Skulls,Mutemath,The Fray,Soldiers of Jah Army, the Ernies and the Pietasters. You will hear journalists and fans alike asking Is that reggae or rock or what? Murphys Kids will leave it open to interpretation as long as it makes the booty shake and the heart pump. Their approach is both precise and brutal. As a band who wants to rock harder than all and groove even harder, they make their musical mark by becoming a hybrid of fast, catchy rock and deep, groovy reggae rhythms. They have a full set of reggae covers as well as 15 second hardcore songs. They have been compared to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and the Toasters. You will find everything in their CD players from old school reggae like Burning Spear and Bob Marley to new school progressive rock like the Mars Volta and Coheed and Cambria. With all the conjecture about what their sound is and what they are trying to do musically the bottom line is Murphys Kids brings it. Their paramount goal is for everyone to go home sweaty, exhausted and grinning from ear to ear.
