Detroit Tracks Music
What a wondeful year so far, singing everywhere: Ann Arbor, Waterford, Clarkston, Troy, Sterling Heights -- all ages and so many great songs! We hope this year is another one filled with restaurant and corporate engagements and your barbecues, birthday parties and anniversaries, cocktail hours, car shows, dances, and senior housing events!
When Tim and Honey Murray perform for audiences all around the Metro Detroit area, it’s almost as if Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gourmet are together on stage – except that Tim might be singing anything from a Bobby Darin or Frank Sinatra standard to a Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Fats Domino, Nat King Cole, Temptations, Beatles or Elvis classic, and you might hear Honey delighting audiences with “Itsy, Bitsy, Teeny, Weeny, Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini,” “Mambo Italiano” and “Santa Baby,” or other favorites from the past such as “What a Difference a Day Makes,” “Blue Skies,” “The Very Thought of You,” “My Guy,” “Don’t Mess with Bill” or “Summertime...”
Their duets include “Hit the Road, Jack,” “All Right, O.K., You Win,” “I Can't Give You Anything but Love,” “Unforgettable,” "True Love,"and many others, including holiday and patriotic selections.
With their vast repertoire, Tim and Honey are the perfect opening act for any venue or type of show: Rat Pack, Oldies, R & B, Motown, Americana, country – and they have song lists for any theme and event: Car Shows, Las Vegas Nights, Popular Tunes from Plays and Movies, Songs that Tell a Story, Sock Hops, Holidays – and more.
Though they perform at area dining spots, the Murrays are also in demand for fundraising and corporate events, retirement parties, wedding cocktail hours and family celebrations of all kinds. Tim is also an engaging emcee who assists with announcements, introductions, and even raffle sales with warmth and ease. For bands and orchestras in need of a poised, vibrant and confident vocalist, Tim, impeccable in a tuxedo, can bring any musical group's event to life with his talent and his ability to connect with every audience.
Retirement complexes and recreation centers utilize Tim and Hone repeatedly, and residents and guests there confirm these performers as their favorites.
Whether it is entertaining at an 80th-birthday celebration for twenty or singing the Star-Spangled Banner at Ford Field for thousands, Tim Murray and his wife, Honey, will make your special event truly unforgettable.
DETROIT TRACKS R&B/SOUL RELEASE: 'I Don't Want to Cry'
Welcome to the home of Detroit Tracks Records and Tim Murray Sings.
Tim Murray founded Detroit Tracks Records in 1983, at the same time Detroit radio stations were playing his single, 'Thinking of You.' The reach of the internet and the public's ongoing love for Detroit music have once again brought Detroit Tracks Records to the forefront of the Motor City music scene.
Most recently, Tim re-mastered and re-released some of his most-requested tracks. He has also been performing at area venues from private parties and church and charity functions to restaurants, clubs and civic gatherings -- such as 4th of July and Memorial Day patriotic programs -- and has become especially-popular as a singer of the Star-Spangled Banner, which he calls 'our country's true number-one song.'
Along with writing, recording and performing, Tim's passion is to continue to grow Detroit Tracks Records and to do his part to be a 'keeper-of-the-flame' of Motor City music.
