$400 - $1500 per event
We are an acoustic band playing instruments from the Irish tradition, hailing from the Sacramento area and getting toes all around tapping.
Traditional Irish is our "roots" music that reminds us of our ancestors.

We have enjoyed sharing this music with folks at weddings, festivals, restaurants, farmers markets, parties, and Contra Dances.
The band sparkles with upbeat Irish reels, jigs, plus heart-felt ballads of the old country sung by Christine. Many of our songs are written by Day in the traditional Irish style.

Day and Christine have both travelled to Ireland and played with the local musicians.


Day Griffin (Uilleann Pipes, Irish Flute, High Whistle, Bouzouki,
Vocals)

Day was drawn to Irish music while he was in college, listening to the Chieftains in misty Humboldt County. He claims the family name Murphy from his paternal grandmother whose parents came to America from Ireland. The band's focus is on traditional Irish tunes, and Day's composing talent stands out in catchy Irish melodies.


Christine Sproul (High Whistle, Bodhran, Vocals)

With both Irish and Scottish history in her blood and ancestors who came first to Canada and then to the U.S., Christine particularly loves playing the traditional Irish melodies on the penny whistle and enjoys exploring the music of all six Celtic nations. Her bodhran adds additional energy to the driving beat of Irish tunes.


Seiko Ito Cummings (Fiddle, Whistle)

Seiko is a classically trained violinist hailing from another island nation where she was the concert mistress for her community orchestra. Her long-standing love of strong melody lines drew her to traditional Irish music. Her impeccable fiddling sings through Irish reels and jigs – you'll find her playing energetic and irresistible!


Robert Cummings (Guitar, Concertina)

Robert's guitar style is both percussive and lyrical, providing a strong rhythm underpinning the tunes. In his formative years he accompanied his father on stand-up bass and guitar. His sense of timing and rhythm is envied, and he is also a student of the concertina.


Mike Kahn (Percussion, Guitar)

Providing the glue and the pulse of the band Mike is formally trained in all types of percussion. His strong sense of rhythm keeps the music moving and holds it together. Whether it's jigs and reels, or hornpipes and slip jigs, Mike is always happy to drive the beat at the heart of the music.

The Mighty Murphys were professional in every way. We had so many compliments from the audience about how much they enjoyed the band. They played during a banquet dinner the and volume was perfect for conversation and yet it was easy to hear them everywhere in the room. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for an Irish band and I hope to have the chance to hear them again real soon. Our compliment and thanks to Mike and the rest of the band. It was a joy working with you. Colleen Young of the Stockton-San Joaquin County Legal Professionals Association, LSI Quarterly Conference held at the Stockton Hilton.

We were so pleased with the Mighty Murphys. They helped make the wedding reception truly joyous. Many people commented on the quality of the music and the fact that they could actually talk at their tables. I heard one couple say I wish we had had a band instead of a DJ!
