Peter Murphy Murphy Writing Seminars, LLC, Challenging & Supportive Workshops,

Shorty Boy-Boy, calls its music Weirdo Fun Pop and features Josh Pannepacker on lead vocals.  The band performs almost entirely original material and is known for whimsical on-stage hi-jinx..  Shorty Boy-Boy has performed at the SXSW festival in Austin, TX and at North Star Bar, Johnny Brenda’s and Milk-Boy (a natural spot for them, right?) among other Philly venues.  The band will be performing for Moonstone at Fergies in semi-acoustic version
