BIG DOG MURPHY & THE MOB
With over 30 years as an experienced blues performer, Big Dog Murphy and the MOB knows how to entertain a crowd while staying true to the spirit of blues.
Big Dog Murphy still sings with all the emotion of an old time “tent revival” preacher. His guitar playing reflects the same kind of fervent fire that you’ll find in his sometimes haunting, but always soulful vocals. He has been writing songs almost his entire life.
His singing style when performing these original ballads and blues has been likened to a "storytelling" blues man. His natural, raspy vocal style adds a tremendous element of reality to his songs, which, in a sense, are reality. Michael doesn't write about what he doesn't know, and what he does know is his life. What many folks find and have commented on is that they feel he is singing about their lives too. They say they find themselves going on a little trip with him, transcended, if you will, to the time and places of which he sings.
