He was posthumously inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame in 2018. Most of the musi- cians who will be performing were not only Murphy's band mates and contemporaries, but also some of his dearest friends. In addition to a performance by the Murphy Ensemble, the program will feature sets by members of Paul's band The Groovemasters with Gary Cummings and close associates Rob Nelson & The Robcats. Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame inductees on the bill are his friends Rizzz who will be joined by mem- bers of The Wild Turkey Band, and bands led by James Montgomery and Duke Robillard with whom Murphy recorded internationally released albums. Paul's career ended tragically in 1994 when he passed away suddenly in Brazil at age 40 while on tour. The R&B and Jazz ensemble at the music school was established in his name to honor his legacy and contri- butions to the Ocean State's musical heritage. The group features horns, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals and is open to advanced high school and college age musicians by audition. Admission is $20.
