Terry was born in Dublin,Ireland.His father was a musician and his mother an Irish dancing champion.So music was in his blood from the very start.
His first playing job was at age fourteen as a drummer in his fathers band.But bigger things were in store,and at age seventeen Terry joined up with a seven piece band and headed to Spain.They were there only a few weeks when they entered and won an international band and group competition.This led to performances in some of Spains fourmost venues.While they were playing in a top night club in Toromolinos,they were approached by an agent who persuaded them to come home to Ireland. Terry by now was the lead singer and focal point of the band,
An appearance on the LATE LATE SHOW[ with Irelands own Johnny Carson,] Gabriel Byrne,was the first of many tv spots.Three hit records followed, and tours of England,Germany,Italy and Spain were soon undertaken. During a subsequent trip to the U.S. and Canada,Terry was offered an opportunity to join an Eight piece band, based in London Ontario.The band was in fact called London and headlined in major resorts and venues all over Canada and the States.
Terry has shared a stage with greats such as, Roy Orbison,Barbara Mandrell,Gladys Knight and Tony Orlando. He has entertained the American troups in Europe, working on some of the USO tours.He is proud of the fact that he has a huge repetoire of music,covering everything from Irish folk to big band to pop and country.He is lauded for his versatility and polish. His shows are always full of variety, and include a lot of humour,so if you get a chance to see him,do so.You won't regret a moment.
