Wiley Ray’s Roy Orbison tribute was born at a karaoke bar. The country singer killed it with a version of “Oh, Pretty Woman” that left the bar in silence. It was followed by applause.
The moment was enough to convince Ray to start Wiley Ray and the Big O Band, which does a fully scripted musical theater re-creation of Orbison’s 1980s concerts. The 90-minute shows represents Orbison’s total musical history, from his earliest Teen Kings rockabilly days to the MTV era.
