ABOUT THE WILD MURPHYS 

The Wild Murphys are a very lively Irish covers group based in the north east of England. Over the last 15 years Middi and his group of raggle taggle misfits have unquestionably become one of the most popular Irish music tribute groups in the UK. The band started as a duo in 2005 with one simple goal in mind, to play Irish music that was impossible to not like. From humble beginnings playing in small pubs and clubs they quickly moved on to playing private events like garden parties and weddings. In 2010 they started playing corporate events and were soon picked up to headline Irish theme days on racecourses, they have to date played all but 6 of the racecourses in England, Scotland and Wales and have played multiple times on some of the most famous racecourses.

Despite none of the members of the group being from Ireland, The Wild Murphys have played at some of the biggest and most prestigious events not just in the UK but all over the world and have been accepted as a true Irish tribute act purely through their clear love and passion for performing that type of music, they have performed in Benidorm, Greece, Dubai, Germany and in 2010 they competed in the international Irish band competition in Las Vegas coming 3rd out of 38 acts.

About

They are one of the most popular and busiest Irish tribute bands in the UK playing up and down the country at private events and racecourse. They are also currently touring in two popular theatre productions "One night in Dublin" which features the full 'Wild Murphys' band (and sometimes Irish dancers too!) playing classic lively Irish songs. While

"The big country music show" (Formally known as 'One night in Texas') is a wow-factor packed extravaganza full of unashamedly  old school sing-along country classics.  

A 3 piece line up of the Wild Murphys Irish band (Middi, Sophy, Tony) are available for private events. If you're having a Wedding, Birthday party, Anniversary bash, Funeral Wake or general all round knees up and your taste in music lies on the lively side of Irish, The Pogues, The Dubliners, The Saw Doctors, Flogging Molly, The Dropkick Murphys, Brendan Shine, Nathan Carter, The Fureys, etc. then this is the group for you! - They're not a folk band, they're not a ceilidh band, they're not even a rock band, they are an out and out Irish music group, playing some of the greatest Irish classics in their own inimitable style, no-one is doing this selection of songs in this lively a style anywhere in the UK today!​ - You can also book the Country band for your own private event, either as the full band or as a four piece made up of two singers backed with live fiddle and keys.
