ACCORDING TO ELYRIA BASED FOLK ROCK BAND POULTRY IN MOTION THE CHICKEN IS THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD ANIMAL OF THE FARMYARD.
"PEOPLE JUST TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THEM" SAID SINGER JUDY KUROWSKI WHO WORKS IN THE CHRONICLE TELEGRAM ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT WHEN SHE'S NOT DEFENDING FOWL. WE JUST THINK THAT CHICKENS HAVE BEEN ABUSED. THEY'RE JUST RUNNING AROUND OUT THERE AND THEY GET NO RESPECT. EVERYBODY EATS THEM.
HOW SUCH CHICKEN LOVE TRANSLATES INTO THE TRIOS MUSIC MIGHT NOT BE CLEAR--NOR WILL IT BE AFTER READING THIS STORY-- BUT WHAT IS EVEIDENT IS A SENSE OF DEDICATION EMPLOYED BY POULTRY IN MOTION REGARDING THEIR MUSIC. FEATURING KUROWSKI, SONGWRITER/GUITATIST LARRY TRUPO AND SINGER LINDA ORR THE THREESOME HAS BEEN PERFORMING ITS "COUNTY FUNKY BLUES ROCK" SONGS FOR AUDIANCES FOR YEARS.
WHILE THE RECORDING OF ITS FIRST CD IS SLATED FOR LATER THIS YEAR, THE ACT IS REALLY EXCITED ABOUT ITS UPCOMING CLEVELAND MUSIC FESTIVAL SHOW ON MAY 13th AT THE WINCHESTER TAVERN AND MUSIC HALL IN LAKEWOOD.
"THERE ARE A LOT OF BANDS PLAYING SO IT SHOULD BE FUN" KUROWSKI SAID. "WE GET 40 MINUTES AND WE GO ON LAST BEFORE HEADLINE ANNE E. DECHANT.
SHE ADDED "I'D SAY OU MUSIC CATERS TO THE 30 TO 50 CROUD. WE'RE NOT BLACK T-SHIRTS AND PIERCINGS. WE'RE A LITTLE MORE MELLOW BUT IF YOU ENJOY GOOD MUSIC YOU'LL LIKE US. ITS NOT AGE RESTRICTIVE. THE BAND WILL BE PERFORMING ORIGINAL MUSIC AS WELL AS CHOICE COVERS FROM THE LIKES OF JOHN PRINE AND JOHN HIATT.
HOPING TO STICK OUT NOT ONLY AT THE MUSIC FESTIVAL BUT ANYTIME THE BAND PLAYS LIVE IN NORTHEAST OHIO, THE MEMBERS PAY SPECIAL ATTENSION TO THEIR WARDROBE WITH TRUPO DONNING A SILVER SUIT WHILE THE GIRLS WEAR DRESSES OFTEN WITH HATS AND VEILS.
WE WANT TO BE MORE THAN THE NORM." KUROWSKI SAID. WE WANT TO STAND OUT AND HAVE PEOPLE NO WE'RE DOING SOMETHING.

Bio

WANT TO SEE ME PULL A HAT OUT OF A RABBIT?
"POULTRY IN MOTION" IS NOT JUST A UNIQUE NAME IT HAS BECOME AN ENTITY OF ITS OWN, WITH A LIFE OF ITS OWN. UP TILL NOW WE HAVE BEEN FAIRLY SUCCESSFUL AT REMAINING OBSCURE AND UNKNOWN, HOWEVER WE HAVE DECIDED TO GO FOR THE GUSTO AND FLY THE COOP, HAVING JUST FINISHED OUR FIRST FORMAL EP/CD TITLED "OUT OF THE FRYING PAN INTO THE FIRE"FIVE ORIGINAL RECORINGS OF VARIOUS GENRES RANGEING FROM FOLK TO COUNTRY TO ROCK TO MOTOWN. ON THE CD I USED SOME STUDIO MUSICIANS AND IN THE PAST WE'VE HAD AS MANY AS FIVE OTHER PLAYERS IN THE BAND ON SOME OF OUR GIGS, HOWEVER THE BAND CONSISTS OF JUST THREE MAIN MEMBERS, MYSELF, OPURT ON GUITAR, HARMONICA,AND VOCALS, HEY JUDE, ON VOCALS AND PERCUSSION, AND MISS LEENDA ON VOCALS AND PERCUSSION. OOPS AND COGBURN THE ROOSTER. HE JUST LOVES BEING ON STAGE AND GETTING HIS PICTURE TAKEN. HE WEARS A GUITAR BUT I'VE NEVER REALLY SEEN HIM PLAY IT.
WE'VE ALL KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR OVER 25 YEARS AND CAME TOGETHER TO FORM THIS PROJECT ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO JUST TO HAVE SOME FUN. WELL ONE THING HAS LED TO ANOTHER AND NOW HERE WE ARE. WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO HAVE FUN WITH OUR MUSIC AND REACH OUT TO THOSE RUNNING AROUND LIKE CHICKENS WITH THEIR HEADS CUT OFF, AND LIFT THEIR SPIRTS, PUT A SMILE ON THEIR FACE AND MAKE THEM FEEL GOOD AGAIN.
OUR BIGGEST CLAIM TO FAME THUS FAR CAME AT THE 2006 CLEVELAND MUSIC FEST WHERE WE MANAGED TO COME IN EIGTH PLACE OUT OF OVER 250 BANDS. AFTER THAT WE GOT TO OPEN FOR NEIL INNES AND THE EGO WARRIORS. NEIL WAS WITH MONTY PYTHONS FLYING CIRCUS AND THE RUTTLES.
AS THE ONLY REAL MUSICIAN IN THE TRIO I HAVE BEEN PLAYING THE GUITAR ALL MY LIFE. ABOUT 45 YEARS. IT ALL STARTED WHEN I HEARD THE BEATLES SING SHE LOVES YOU BACK AROUND 1962.
MY OTHER AND MAJOR INFLUENCE IS BOB DYLAN. I'VE BEEN A DEVOTEE SINCE "MEET BOB DYLAN".
ALONG THAT LINE OTHER INFLUENCES INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO JOHN PRINE, JOHN HIATT, STEVE EARLE, THE BEATLES, THE STONES, WOODY GUTHRIE, HANK WILLIAMS, GENE AUTRY, TENNESSEE ERNIE FORD I COULD GO ON BUT...
THATS ENOUGH ABOUT ME, WHO ARE YOU?
OH YEA, AND I HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO PULL A HAT OUT OF A RABBIT!
