After being named by Playboy magazine as one of the best-unsigned bands in the United States, Ouray found itself a staple on club and concert stages throughout the country. Their first release “Chrome On the Range” (Taxi Records) was a Midwest radio breakout in Billboard Magazine and is now a cult status album. Their second album “Motor Dream” saw the band shifting slightly from its country rock roots to a more rock oriented approach. The band was regularly seen supporting acts like The New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Sea Level, Commander Cody, Marshall Tucker Band, Asleep At The Wheel, and The Dixie Dregs. In Chicago, Ouray was in regular rotation on WXRT where they performed several XRT shows including a live “UnConcert” simulcast. Originally founded in 1975, brothers Frank and Bo Pirruccello (guitar and pedal steel), established Ouray as one of the most “rock-oriented, tight and skillful” country rock groups in the region, (as described by Playboy). Ouray 2017 reflects their ever-relevant Americana sound and includes the addition of third brother John Pirruccello (who’s guitar resume includes work with Keith Richards, Nicholas Tremulis, The Autumn Defense and The Westies). John Forrest (bass) and Rick Barr (drums) complete the current line up for a show to look forward to!
