The History of Orry Kraw
The band was originally formed in 1986 by Todd Bailey, Willie Elliott, Stevie Hurt and Lonnie Knowles. We named the band after a man that live in Browns, Il. He was quite a character and we thought he was pretty cool, so we modified the spelling and we became “Orry Kraw”. We played together until 1991 when other obligations and interests seemed to become more important and we just gradually drifted apart. For a decade the band remained only a memory in my mind. Then I found my old bass guitar in a pawn shop in 2000 and bought it. In 2001 I contacted Willie to see if he was interested in getting together to play just for fun. To my surprise, he agreed. It did not take long before we realized how much we still wanted to play. So we reformed Orry Kraw and we have been playing everywhere since 2003. Our first gig was Hogrock 2003 on the beach. Has been a wild ride ever since.
