Dropkick Murphys

Tale of the Stage

Last night we were blessed on the mountain with the Dropkick Murphys. Irish punk, beer and good looking women has the makings for a wickedly rowdy night. The band came out with a all fist blazing tear down the roof attitude and it was on. After getting swayed into the mosh pit and covered in stale beer we rocked for almost one blessed hour and a half to the music from the old country done in ripping fashion. Now being a long time Dropkick Murphys fan coupled with the fact that this was the first time I had been blessed to see them left me a killer ringing ear and a wanting for much much more. I was brought back to the memories of my Irish Grandfather who despite his love for alcohol and roaming added character to the bloodline. My comments can not lay justice to a body of work that has stood the many years of the punked road so kick back and enjoy the legend of the Dropkick Murphys.

Biography

Dropkick Murphys formed in 1996 in Boston, MA. The band was originally just a bunch of friends looking to play music for fun. We started playing in the basement of a friend’s barbershop and our goal was to blend the musical influences we had grown up with (Punk Rock, Irish Folk, Rock, and Hardcore) into one loud, raucous, chaotic, and often out of tune mix that we could call our own.

To our surprise people seemed to liked it and we began to record music and tour constantly. To date we have released over ten singles, two EP CD, and four Full Length albums and have had the good fortune of being able to play across a large portion of the world. We are truly grateful to the many friends and bands that have helped us out and supported us along the way in the US, Canada, Europe, U.K. Ireland, Scandinavia, and Australia as well as the many countries we look forward to playing in the next century.

The bands’ main goal is to play music that creates an all for one, one for all environment where everyone is encouraged to participate, sing along, and hopefully have a good time. In the true spirit of punk rock we view the band and the audience as one in the same; in other words our stage and our microphone are yours.

In addition to hopefully bringing people together for a good time, we hope to share some of our experiences and beliefs in working class solidarity, friendship, loyalty and self- improvement as a means to bettering society (i.e. You can preach till you’re blue in the face but if you’re lying in
the gutter no one’s gonna listen. If you pick yourself up by the bootstraps and live your life to the best of your ability you may set an example that others will follow).
