Ex-Red Wiggle Murray Cook is now a DJ and spins ‘Fruit Salad’ in the club

The crowd absolutely love it!

A man who was once soundtracking the childhoods of everyone around the world is now soundtracking their nights out on the town.

Murray Cook, who used to be the beloved Red Wiggle, is now DJ Murray Cook and he has shared a video of his DJing prowess on social media. 

In the video Cook is working the crowd as he plays electronic music duo Daft Punk’s song ‘One More Time’ with The Wiggles' incredibly memorable and fun song ‘Fruit Salad’.

So good to see Murray still having some fun a decade after leaving the iconic red outfit and children’s band. 

Commenters on Murray’s DJ’ing video also loved the new career move. 

“I would go absolutely FERAL if I head this in the club,” wrote one commenter. 

“I think I’d die if I walked into a club and saw Murray DJing - that would be sick!” said another. 

“You show ‘em Murray, got the whole place bouncing there! May that continue for a longgg time to come! Always cheers me up listening to you!” a third comment read.

It’s not just DJing where Murray gets his musical kicks now. The 62-year-old is a member of the Sydney-based soul, rock, and pop band ‘The Soul Movers’. 

‘Bona Fide’, the band’s 2019 album, received great reviews and was even nominated for an Australian Independent Record Label (AIR) Award. The Sydney Morning Herald went so far as to say it is “a stunning album”. 

Being so committed to making music while being as accomplished as he is just goes to show you how much Murray loves it. In 2010, he and the other original Wiggles were made a ‘Member of the Order of Australia’ “for service to the arts, particularly children’s entertainment, and to the community as benefactors and supports of a range of charities.”

Well deserved.
