John Charlet of Murphy's Kids Grooves on Reggae Vibrations

Friday, October 21, 2011 ● 2-4 pm (edt)
WTJU 91.1 FM/Streaming at WTJU.net

John Charlet, lead singer and trumpeter for Murphy's Kids, will stop by Reggae Vibrations this Friday, to chat about the band's gig later that evening at The Southern with Ballyhoo!.

After years of being a traveling favorite on the east coast, hundreds of club gigs, playing to sold out venues at home, and lighting up bars and dance halls in all points west have made Murphy's Kids the finely-tuned high-intensity rock n' roll machine they are today. With captivating stage presence, melodic hooks and infectiously groovy beats, Murphy's Kids will be bringing their fiery brand of reggae and rock n' roll to your town soon.

Murphy's Kids has been seen at outdoor festivals and punk dives. They have been featured on bills with artists that range as widely as Alien Ant Farm, The Fray and Soldiers of Jah Army. They are a versatile group and you'll see them blazing through 40-minute rock sets and pulling 3+ hour reggae-dance marathons in any given club, college or festival where good music and great fun can be found.
