Murphy's Kids / Bio

Murphy's Kids has been traversing these United States with their blend of uplifting rock anthems and infectious reggae-ska grooves since 1999. Hailing from the mighty Richmond, VA, Murphy's Kids blends traditional ska and reggae elements with progressive rock, jazz, dub and funk in a highly interactive live show. On the stage and in the studio, Murphy's Kids pushes honest, danceable reggae and ska songs with great musicianship and the fiery passion of the hypest punk band. At all times facilitating maximum partytime, Murphy's Kids leaves everyone in the room grinning, if not soaked in sweat.

With 2 full-length releases on Community Records, 5 EPs and more than 2,000 shows under their belts, Murphy's Kids is comfortable and well-suited to every venue from the festival main stage (Camp Barefoot 2010-2011, 2014, Spaghettifest 2005-2013, Friday Cheers Richmond 2013 etc) to the 80 Capacity Punk Bar and able to tailor set lists to any kind of crowd. Specializing in a rocky blend of reggae and ska, Murphy's Kids also boasts a full set of traditional ska and reggae covers and has been known to blast contemporary arrangements of covers ranging from Stevie Wonder and The Police to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Peter Gabriel.
