The Torkays (Coulee)

The Torkays were from Spirit Lake, Iowa. Band members included Ken Cunningham, Jerry Upson, Mark Gentry, Bob York, Jim York and Dean Aakhus. The group released this great rockabilly sounding record in 1965 on Coulee Records (La Crosse Wisconsin) .

  1. Great one love it, Thanks for all the obscure early 60's rockers on small labels

  3. Spirit Lake is in Iowa, not WI, but because the label was in WI, this band is covered in my book, "On That Wisconsin Beat".
