Murphey's Midnight Rounders
There are plenty of fine bands out there, but something about Murphey’s Midnight Rounders just evokes some Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac, and Crosby, Stills and Nash. Those evergreen, singable songs of 70′s rock share some spark with Murphey’s Midnight Rounders. Or, as Brad says, “Sometimes we’re cut from the same cloth as Peter, Paul and Mary. Sometimes we’re a cross between the Grateful Dead and the Andrews sisters.” With that visual in mind, Murphey’s comes across as honest, refreshing and magickal.

It’s a fresh musical take on the concept of liberty. Mostly, it is extremely catchy, singable and danceable. Brad Murphey has distinguished himself as a versatile songwriter, arranger and guitarist. Original songs, such as, "Tom's Song" and "Soul of the Nation," are soulful fragments of lost dreams. Others, such as "Third Bombay" and "Uncle Chronic," give us insights into his twisted sense of humor. His arrangements of standards like, "Hard Times Come Again No More" and "Long Black Veil" are fresh and emotional. He has also arranged guitar lines and vocals, as well as writing lyrics for Unique Drive’s first CD, which was released in 2013.

Brad is a ‘by-product’ of Northwestern College Conservatory, where he concentrated on classical composition and conducting.  He worked in theater as an actor and make-up artist, designing make-up for small and large theaters and has acted in musicals and musical comedies.
Teresa Frank started out as a dancer, performing in Dance Lines and Competition Disco (back in the ‘80’s, it was not a contact sport). About this same time, she started to explore other forms of artistic expression and found that she had a talent for music.  She took voice lessons at MacPhail Institute in Minneapolis and started working under Bea Speed, world-recognized choral director.  She played bass in local bands, then took time off to raise her family.

In the last few years, Teresa has found her voice again and also found that she has a talent for percussion, especially, Bodhran and Djembe.  Her voice lends a silky texture to Murphey’s Midnight Rounders’ harmonies and soulfulness to her lead vocals. Teresa has recently expanded the band's sound capabilities with the addition of the Mandolin.
Bonnie comes from a background in music, theater, dance and visual arts. With an all-around behind-the-scenes position in the Unhinged Theater Company, and as a member of various choirs for 14 years, the opportunity to perform and help create original music has been a wonderful experience. On her 21st birthday, Bonnie received the best gift she could ask for: playing a 2 hour live show for all her friends. 
Bonnie has recently been featured on various songs produced by Unique Drive.
Currently, Murphey's Midnight Rounders is the number 1 Americana band in the Twin Cities on the Reverbnation list and has been in the top 10 for nearly 4 years. Nationally, they are in the top 300 Americana bands (www.reverbnation.com/murpheysmidnightrounders) and recently signed with EMR Records and Management.
