Plunk Murray Celtic Pub Rock from Dallas, TX
If you've ever lifted a pint with good friends at a local pub, or heard a song that reminds you of an old friend, then you know the spirit of Irish music already, even if you're not Irish yourself. Dallas-based Plunk Murray brings that spirit of friendship and fun to the stage with every performance. Audience sing-alongs, pint-raising toasts and plenty of Irish humor make Plunk Murray a great fit for any event where a good time is the goal.
While primarily a Celtic band, playing everything from traditional Irish tunes from The Dubliners and The Irish Rovers to more modern Irish songs by The Pogues and Flogging Molly, you're also likely to hear a wide range of "not-so" Irish songs as well. On any given night you may here songs by Merle Haggard, The Cure, Men at Work or the Beatles.
Since the band's inception in 2013, Plunk Murray has impressed crowds at the North Texas Irish Festival, The Sherman Celtic Festival, pubs all across Texas and Oklahoma and at countless private functions.
Founded by DFW music scene veteran, Johnny Zercher, the band boasts a group of incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist musicians who play accordion, mandolin, tenor banjo, Irish whistle, acoustic guitar, bass, drums, Irish percussion along with fantastic 3 or 4 part vocal harmonies.
Named after Johnny’s Great Great Grandfather, a 19th Century Scots-Irish immigrant, Plunk Murray is proud of the reputation they've established as one of the most fun and exciting Irish bands in North Texas. At home on large festival stages, small pubs and just about everything in between, Plunk Murray always puts on a great performance that will have you singing along, lifting a pint and cheering for more.
