This summer Stuckey & Murray performed at the BamaJam music festival in Enterprise, Alabama, alongside The Defibulators. The two groups then traveled on The Redneck Riviera Tour and played shows in Atlanta, Athens, Savannah, Nashville, Birmingham, and at The Florabama.
In 2007 Stuckey and Murray performed at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, and were reviewed by Malcolm Jack of "The Scotsman", as "Great stuff, in short, for 15-year-olds and Nuts readers". They have also performed at All Points West, Reading and Leeds music festivals, Latitude Music festival, The Virgin Music Festival in Toronto, and The Montreal Comedy Festival.
Also at the Edinburgh Fringe festival Stuckey and Murray made a video of their song "Its Every Cuss Word We Know", which is a spoof of an REM song. The video went viral, probably in large part due to its appeal to 15-year-olds.
Stuckey and Murray's ill-fated appearance on "Showtime at the Apollo" was met with a great deal of derision by the audience and caused host Steve Harvey to announce "Unh-unh, these white boys ain't RIGHT!"
In 2008, Stuckey & Murray ventured into the realm of fashion with their invention of The Fuxedo. The Fuxedo is a fully functional, cross between a jumpsuit and a tuxedo. Murray even wore his to his sister's wedding. The duo hopes to have The Fuxedo in production by spring of 2011.
Andy Stuckey has diabetes. The duo wrote a song about how Stuckey discovered he got diabetes on Christmas Day in a song called "Santa Gave Me Diabetes."
Jon Murray created funny videos while growing up in Williston, VT, too, including a satire of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage".
