Celtic Pub Rock from Dallas, TX
Founded in 2014, and named after founder and lead singer Johnny Zercher'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, slightly rowdy and exciting Celtic bands in Texas.
While primarily a Celtic band, playing everything from traditional tunes from The Dubliners and The Irish Rovers to more modern 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 George Strait, The Cure, Men at Work or the Beatles.
In 2018 Johnny was joined by multi-instrumentalist Nate Morefield (Accordion, Banjo, Whistle & Mandolin) and guitarist Bruce Johnson. After releasing their first recorded effort, Come and Take It, in late 2018 the group began playing local pubs, festivals and private events all over Texas and Oklahoma.
More recently Plunk Murray added Aaron "Jonesy" Jones on bass and former nationally-ranked Irish dancer, Erin Bliss on drums. And In 2021 the band released their much anticipated follow up recording effort, Another Drink.
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.
