Dropkick Murphys – An American Celtic punk band, formed in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1996, Dropkick Murphys have made a household name for themselves locally through constant touring and yearly St. Patrick’s Day week shows held in and around Boston. Their 2004 smash hit “Tessie” became the band’s first mainstream hit and one of their biggest charting singles to date. “I’m Shipping up to Boston”, off their 2005 Warrior’s Code album was featured in the 2006 Academy Award-winning film The Departed. This single went Platinum and remains one of Dropkick Murphys best known songs to date, becoming the walk-up song of Red Sox closer, Jonathan Papelbon, who danced an Irish jig to the song several times throughout the 2007 Boston Red Sox Championship season.
Dropkick Murphys first started playing in the basement of a friend’s barbershop and soon began to tour and record. Their first big break came when the Mighty Mighty Bosstones selected them as an opening act for their 1997 tour.
