Rock and Roll paramedics The Defibrilators to play Bruton fundraiser
A group of rocking paramedics will play a special fundraising gig at Bruton on Saturday night in tribute to their colleague Pat Murphy who is retiring.
Pat Murphy joined the London Ambulance Service in February 1986. After training at Waterloo he was posted to Romford. He qualified as a paramedic in 1998 and transferred to the South West in 2000. Pat has spent the last 12 years based predominately at Glastonbury Ambulance Station.
Pat is married to wife Linda and has three grown up sons. Pat has always had a passion for music and he plays a variety of instruments and his roots lie in folk. In 2009 fellow paramedic Kirk Russell formed a rock'n'roll band aptly named "The Defibrillators", made up of paramedics from South Western Ambulance Service . The band has played across the county from Yeovil to Porlock and in summer 2012 supported the world famous Wurzels.
Sadly this year Pat has had to retire from both SWAST and The Defibs due to ill health.

Kirk Russell said: "Pat is a much loved and respected paramedic and will be sorely missed by all. He could be counted on to brighten up the darkest day with his ever cheerful smile and manner. He has a marvellous way with patients, always making them feel at ease. I won't miss his terrible jokes though!
"The Defibs are continuing to play but miss Pat's enthusiasm and unique style. He is a hard act to follow."
The Defibrillators are playing at the Bruton Castle on Saturday (January 26) from 8pm to Midnight in honour of Pat, all are welcome.
