Mike Daley & Dave Murphy

May 23 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Mike Daley is a guitarist and singer based in Toronto. A professional musician for over 30 years, Mike has toured Canada, the United States and England and has recorded extensively in a variety of musical styles. He is a longtime member of Fraser/Daley with bassist Alec Fraser and is also proud to work with a variety of bands around Toronto including the Tom Waits Appreciation Congregation, the Travellers and others.

Dave Murphy has recorded and performed worldwide for a wide variety of Canadian acts, beginning his career as a young musician with a five year stint as keyboardist for Canadian rock legend “Romping” Ronnie Hawkins.  Since forming in 1993, the Dave Murphy Band has performed over 3000 times.  The band’s mastery of a wide range of styles earned them opening spots for diverse acts like James Brown and The Barenaked Ladies.  The band was the house band for four years running at the Collingwood Elvis Festival, and was enlisted by the Canadian government to perform separate shows for both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles.
The band has released two independent CDs of all original material showcasing their wide range of musical interests.  Dave also performed with the late, great Canadian guitar virtuoso Jeff Healey during the last five years of his tragically short life.  Dave worked as the bandleader of Jeff’s house band for his weekly shows at the club, a band Jeff affectionately called “the best damned bar band in Canada!”  Dave also toured world wide with Jeff and performed on Jeff’s two final record releases, the award-winning Mess of Blues and Songs
