Haven't looked in on you lately - are you and Terrea O.K.?
I'm now playing organ for our local senior center, and sometimes bring the banjo to spice up the music - I only play chords on my 1926 Vega 4-string, but no too many banjo players in this age group, I guess..... Hope you are well.....

Reading and re-reading every comment by all the guests and then the original content posted by Jerry, has touched deep feelings within me. The Garret experience and Terrea's music had very strong influences forming my values and identity as I moved through adolescence into adulthood, circa 1963 -1970. I cherish this sight, having just found it, as I have always cherished those nights at that little club on Fairfax.

Sights and sounds have been well described, but also there was the impromptu wit and wisdom of Terrea between songs, as she read notes and requests sent up to her,(I always begged for "Mariah" or "The House of The Rising Sun,") and the running comments she made as changed and tuned her guitars.

Thanks to everyone who has posted, to the Webmaster for rekindling the glow, most of all, thanks to Terrea Lea for her lifelong impact.

As I hearken back, the last place I visited before and the first place I visited after Army active duty was
The Garret.

It was wonderful to find this site. I loved the Garret and Terrea Lea and her music. I have wonderful fond memories of the "Garret". I used to go on weekends in the mid 60's. I loved the song "The Lovers" and bought her album with the song on it. Over the years I lent it out and never got it back. I was sorry to see that "The Lovers" was not included in the cd you are selling. Will there be more cd's available? I would love to get it on cd, Terrea sang the song beautifully. Thanks again for the Site and I will always remember Terrea Lea and the Garret.

Hi Jerry,
Sandy and I met at Hollywood High School in 1959 and one of our favorite date places was the Garret. We were married in 1964 and still stopped by the Garret for a frosted mocha, gingerbread and some great music. Please tell Terrea "Hi" for us. She won't remember us, but we will never forget her. Thanks for putting the CD together. We are really are enjoying it. Sandy and Steve

I was there! Not too long ago I was singing that song about eternity. In the land of Oden -- there stands a mountain.....
Loved the special coffee drinks and having a place to go as a person under 21. And the folk era was the best!

Apologies for the brief interruption in Guest Book operation. Our site host, Go-Daddy, appears to have been fiddling with some PHP variables and constants. Since you're reading this, I've got things going again with a stopgap fix, but will be looking for a more elegant solution in due course.

Sorry about that.

I worked at the garret house around 65-66. I had a lot of fun and still listen to Terrea music.

After 45 years I still find myself humming "C'mon In". At 17 the Garrett was my intro to hot mulled cider, tabletop candles, and a lifetime of trying to improve my finger picking to even try to emulate Terrea. My aforementioned earworm sent me on a Google search that landed here. Amazing! The days and years surrounding evenings at the Garret (my youngest son's middle name, by the by...neither my wife nor he will ever understand) may not have been the absolute best time of my life, but certainly rank high and extremely memorable.

Re: The sample music player.

Sorry, it's not ours. That software belongs to Café Press. If you have a problem with it, please let them know. The more complaints they get, the more likely it is to be fixed.

You sample player does not work. Tried listen to some sample songs and it would not play. Thought you would want to know.

Came across this website as I meandering through my personal memory lane. I was a regular on Sat and Sun night in the early sixties The Garret, sang on multiple occasions with two different guys, and actually was part of a trio called The Garret Singers that Terrea asked us to form, which we did several times, but one member, my partner, backed out and to my knowledge, Terrea never pursued doing anything with it. If any of you know my name, or Jack Machold (my first singing partner) or Noel Boykin, my second singing partner, I would like to hear from you.
