With a song selection ranging from Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Motown, oldies, and classic celebration favorites, Tim's fantastic singing ("better renditions than original artist's') guarantees total enjoyment for you and your guests, making your event truly memorable.
His warmth, good humor and energy put all at ease as his voice and musical selections have everyone forgetting their troubles and surrendering to the joy of his performance. Tim also can emcee and provide background music as well as affordable DJ/singing for wedding receptions (specialty: second weddings).
His wife, Honey, sings too: favorites including Misty, At Last, Mambo Italiano, My Guy and duets with Tim.
We hired Tim Murray as a singer for our church picnic. It rained, but Tim moved his show inside and everyone still had the best time ever!
Tim came in and set up quickly and easily, with fantastic singing and song sets that were perfect for our lounge customers! He also had wonderful backgound music for break time. He set the perfect mood, and everyone there had a great time.
I saw Tim perform at a Veteran's Day concert, and I immediately suggested him for our Red Hat Society Anniversary party. We had a 'Flappers' theme - and he performed all the music we had requested, got us dancing and singing along: it was our best party ever! He is a great singer and entertainer, and he and his wife are extremely professional every step of the way.
Response from Detroit Tracks/Tim Murray Sings:
It was a pleasure to work wwith the Red Hat Society ladies! They were organized and lots of fun! (However, our performance date was 2012 - not 2009...typo!) Thanks for the kind words!
Price Range: $150-$1200

Though Tim is often requested to sing with bands and orchestras, he usually performs with background tracks which have been hand-picked to meet clients' needs.
