It is February 26, 2019. I am 75 years old now but can still look back and reminisce about the wonderful evenings I spent with friends sipping coffee at the Garrett and enjoying Terrea's music.

We used to go to The Garrett every Saturday night in 1964-65 and listen to Terrea lea. My favorite song of hers was Mariah. My favorite drink was a Cherry Flip.

My friends and neighbors Ruth and Sandie would accompany me to The Garret in the evenings after school during weekdays. We attended Fairfax High from 1962 to 1965. I loved going there to watch Terrea Lea perform. The food was great and so were the coffees. I miss The Garret very much. It was a life-saver for me.

The Garret was the first venue I performed in outside of high school. I had no idea how singing a few original songs on that small platform would affect my life. Thanks for the memories.

just an additional note to reveal something I found on the internet while searching for terrea lea. It is said in her bio and we know from our personal knowledge of her that she had a very dry and subtle sense of humour.
I laughed when I saw this listing, Nutz, Terrea Lea. This could have been her way of dealing with phone solicitors and other miscellaneous folks who sought to use up her precious time. It would have put them off when they tried to sell her something or make an unwanted pitch.
If it was Terrea, as I suspect it could have been, more power to her for inventing a way to get rid of pests who bother us by phone daily. She was a very clever lady.

We used to go to the garret while I was a student at U.S.C., and since I stayed there to earn three degrees it was a long period.As young people we had the same concerns and adventures as many have described. It was because of the grace and friendliness of Terry and B.J. and others that we were able to find ourselves, make lifetime friends, and really enjoy our lives in Southern California.
I went to a store in long beach some time ago and Terrea's name came up in conversation, what is she doing now? I looked her up in the Vista California phonebook and called her. Although she was somewhat older than I her sweet, warm personality came through the phone just as it had at the garret many years before. We talked, she told me B.J. had died, and that she was ok. She also said a friend had made a recording of some of her best numbers on cd and I ordered one. I was so delighted that she remembered me among the many who visited the Garret. May she Rest in Peace, I've only just now discovered that she has passed. What a truly wonderful lady, we shall all miss her and her friends.

I'd like to hear from any of the old crowd who frequented the Garret. I'm back in Santa Monica, CA now, considering putting together a folk trio in the spirit of the old days. Wes. 310-452-0463.

I spent many a night during the early 60's sitting around the fireplace with John Hardy and Gary Pokras and others learning songs and playing guitar between Terrea's sets, drinking cappuccino's and going outside for a little something stronger. Great memories. Thanks for keeping the web site up.

I'm turning 65 this week. Such happy memories of the Garret with so many friends who are no longer around. I remember feeling safe and yet so adult drinking coffee and listening to Terrea sing, sitting on an old sofa in the corner with friends. For me it was the right place at the right time of my life. Thank you

About 1965 I took a girl that I really liked to The Garrett. Her name was Lynn K. At a point during the show Terrea Lea was taking requests from the audience and said any song but "The House of Rising Sun" because she had sung it so much. Someone asked for it anyway and Terrea sang the song. The audience loved it. What a great memory it is.

Still have the LP record-fun stop- remember the noisy blenders and her way of handling the noise. Wondered if there were CD'sand other recordings

Now I guess Terrea won't be bothered by noisy blenders firing up when she sings. Many late nites around the round fires, just enjoying the whole idea of all the people and friends. Very happy to have the recordings and hear those sweet, sweet sounds of the lovely lady with the impish smile.
You will always be moving my heart and alive in my soul.
thank you ever so much!
a friend

I often think about the Garret and those long ago evenings listening to Terrea sing. I will never forget!

Loved Terrea and the Garret. I also have the black LP album with the red record inside. As a small town Ky girl, it was the most interesting and fun place I had seen in the early 60's. I spent 6 summers at the Girl Scout Camp on Catalina and when we had breaks we went to the Garret. We had nothing like it at Murray State University in Ky where I went to school and each year, I could hardly wait to get back to the West Coast. thanks for this site.........
