About
We bring the authentic, real sound of jazz to people who appreciate this great art form. Our ensemble is the perfect choice for the devotee and connoisseur of jazz vocals and jazz piano. We are available to perform as a Duo, Trio or ensemble with Upright Bass and Drums based on the needs of your event.
We are available for events ranging from Corporate Events, Private Parties, Weddings, Gallery Openings, and Holiday Parties.

You'll hear tunes that evoke the emotive smoky feeling of the great jazz clubs. Enjoy incredible jazz piano with phenomenal rhythmic emphasis from a drummer
who has evolved on piano with a virtuoso touch. The vocals pay tribute to the great singers Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Shirley Horn and Sarah Vaughan.

Myra and Kevin have worked together for years, and have recorded together.

Myra's love of jazz began in childhood and led her to attend Juilliard before beginning her professional career in New York City as a jazz vocalist. Myra has performed at famed New York venues including Lincoln Center, the Plaza Hotel and the IBM Gallery of Arts and Sciences, and she has performed at numerous music festivals and colleges in the Philadelphia area.

Kevin is a sought-after and versatile musician, and is completely at home in many genres. He displays his piano and composition skills on his recent album, Three Changes, and has performed as a drummer in several groups as well. Kevin also tours and records with Triage, a modern-style jazz ensemble.

The jazz trio was wonderful! We got so many compliments from our guests who said the music was perfect for our wedding reception. Myra was so easy to work with. I didn't have particular songs in mind, but I pointed out several that I liked the style of, and that's exactly what I got. It was the perfect music to complement the eating and socializing during our reception, and also for everyone to dance to. The band even took a request on the spot from one of our guests. The price was also reasonable, and I will be recommending them far and wide!

Myra and her band arrived on time and started to play promptly, as agreed. They added a lot of atmosphere to our party and everyone enjoyed the sound of the band, playing jazz standards and the tunes that I had chosen. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to add a nice touch to their party or special event. MLA

The Myra Murphy Jazz Group performed at our annual holiday party this year, and everyone loved it. The group performed three sets of a mix of snappy/poppy holiday jazz and jazz standards. The mix of holiday songs and jazz standards were perfect for our holiday party, and their sound and volume were just right. Myra Murphy even took the time to inquire (long before the performance) as to whether we had any songs in particular that we wanted to hear. I would recommend the Myra Murphy Jazz Group for any event or occasion.

Everything went flawlessly at this last minute booking. The only thing that would have made me happier is if I'd paid less...but that's not a complaint. The band members were friendly, prompt, responsive to requests, and we negotiated an extra set when we realized the party was going to last longer than anticipated. Thank you Myra!
