Ory was born on 25th December 1886 in Woodland Plantation, near LaPlace, Louisiana. He started playing music with home-made instruments in his childhood, and by his teens was leading a band well regarded in South-East Louisiana. He kept La Place as his base of operations because of family obligations; on his twenty-first birthday he moved his band to New Orleans, Louisiana.
