I am so excited to have found this site!!! I was a regular from 1962 thru 1966(ish). I knew John Hardy, Kenny Glubin (and his friend Stan), John Coty...and Phil Campos. Can you tell me how Phil died?? I was deeply involved with the happenings of that era...I was 16 when I first discovered Hollywood and the counter culture. You missed one hot-spot - the Chez Paulette on Sunset. Also does anyone remember Andre - I think he was door-person at the Garret. Those were amazing times. And Terrea if you read this...I was the girl with long dark hair who was involved with Phil Campos in 1963, met him at the Garret. Although actually I had more of a crush on the wonderful women there!! Thank you for bringing back these memories!!!

I was a long-time devoted fan of Terrea Lea and The Garret.

Terrea was one of the finest singers and guitar stylists I ever heard. Is it possible she is around, and I can contact her? We knew each other in Hollywood many years ago when I worked for Southern Music Publishers. I am now retired and living in Florida. I would love to write her.

I was a non-regular, but fairly frequent, audience member in the late 60s.

I have just learned how to do a web search (finally) and have been plugging in names of old high school friends. "Lacy Bosquez" brought me to your web site.

Since I am such an internet-beginner, I am not able to figure out how to contact Lacy (or if she's even the right one, for that matter). If Lacy attended North Hollywood HS (about '64-'67), I'd love to hear from her.

Back to your wonderful website: It brought back so many memories. My first reaction was that the picture looked familiar and reminded me of the coffee house my friends and I used to go to. It took a while until I realized this WAS the coffee house. I had completely forgotten the name. Thank you for doing this! And thanks for the memories!

I was a Garret regular for a year or two in 1963-1965. I was thrilled to find this site when I checked on Terrea's name for web info. I have enjoyed the last two hours scouring this site - I'm glad someone like you cared to go to such great effort. My thoughts are flooding so fast that I don't know what to highlite from my memories, but, I guess it'll be that I used to make use of the open mike to sing my little parodies while I strummed my baritone uke. My one hit(?) was "This land is Disney's". I am now living back in my home town, Antioch, ILL. I came back and worked 30 years in our local Post Office and am now retired. Thanks again - and I hope I can find a Terrea Lea at the Garret record to purchase... I'm glad she is doing well - Thanks, again...Oh, is my name listed in the regulars list (although misspelled)? Perhaps you got those names from the sign-in sheets on Hoot nights?

The Garret Web site has now been in operation for two years and I just renewed its domain name registration for two more. A number of old friends have checked in to visit, but many more are yet to be heard from. We're looking forward to it.

Many thanks to all who helped and continue to help make the Web site a success. Looks like it's going to be around for a while.

Best wishes,

Jerry Hollombe, Webmaster

Thanks much, Mary. This site is a labor of love, intended to help former Garret folk find each other. I'm always glad to hear it's working.

For those who are wondering what reply Mary is talking about, the Webmaster gets an e-mail copy of everything posted to the Guest Book. Depending on the message and how busy I am, I sometimes reply by e-mail instead of here.

I'd love to put up a page about the Garret's Hoot Nights, but have no photos and remember few names. If anyone has pictures of a Garret Hoot and would be willing to loan them, they'd be much appreciated.

Best wishes,

Jerry Hollombe, Webmaster

Thank you for you reply.

You have done an outstanding job putting together and maintaining this website and must be commended for all your efforts and time...thank you very much!

Its a real treasure trove to those of us who have wondered what became of Terrea and the Garret crowd. I have read and re-read everything here...some of the memories are bittersweet but still a very special part of and time of my life. As Hope would say...thanks for the memories.

My memory is not as sharp as it was but I'm sure we would have at least said hello to each other at the Garret from time to time and maybe even enjoyed each other's performances. Keep up the very good work!!!

What a joy to find remnants of a happy and important time of my life...about ten years worth actually. I began going there in 1962 through its closing usually several times a week and introduced many people to the Garret. I also enjoyed performing at the Sunday night Hootenanies and still have my "requests"...many from Terrea herself. So nice to hear she is still going strong and up to her ears in dough. Do hope her music will become available on cd's soon, will be so good to hear her again.! Have any of the other Hootenany people checked in to date?

How nice to find this site! Mis-spent my highschool youth in the Garret every Friday nite. I still have the Terrea Lea at the Garret and can make CD's for anyone if Terrea will approve. Anyone have any of the other records.

Thanks for the great site. I loved the Garret and always felt safe taking a date or just going single. The music was great and the atmosphere was relaxing. Occasionally, I'm in the area and always make it a point to take a quick look at the building. Guess I'm hoping it will reopen as the Garret. Take care and thanks for the great effort. Bill

No thanks needed! Seeing that "complete scan still needed" notation by the pic of the Balladeers album just seemed to issue a personal challenge to me. I guess there are some advantages to be stubborn/Irish after all.

The Garret gave me shelter, good friends, good conversation (and the opportunity to meet my husband!) The Webmaster's hard work putting together this site gave me back great memories and an opportunity to reconnect with some of those friends. (I hope to see more of you on my next trip out west.)

We've got it! With great thanks and a tip o' the hat to Tom and especially Christy Blackburn (who flat out refused to give up the search), the discography page now includes a complete set of the "Les Baxter's Balladeers" album covers.

At this time, a pay-per-download page of Terrea's music is in work and slow progress is being made. Details of pricing and copyright issues are yet to be worked out, but I intend to keep it as cheap as feasible without actually losing money. This is going to take a while, so don't hold your breath, but it appears to be doable.

Wow, I was searching for Andrea Konow and was pleased to find this link with her name and address. I believe I was only at The Garret once or twice, I remember Jerry fondly, and even remember hanging out with Bob Hamburg on ocassion. Good luck on your site. This was a great blast from the past.

Hi Everyone! It is almost June again and time for the Del Mar Fair, (now called the San Diego County Fair) It runs from June 13 through July 6th (closed Mondays). We are there 12 hours a day so if any of you can make it we would love to see you! Terrea is still holding her own, working every day. She is definetly a trooper. See you there. Love, Sue

Hi, Cathy!

Sue and I have kicked around the idea of reissuing Terrea's albums on CD, but it hasn't gone anywhere, yet. Apart from the non-trivial up-front expenses, there are unknown copyright issues to straighten out.

For now, there are two downloadable MP3 files already available on Terrea's Discography and Repertoire Web pages: "Ask a Child" and "Dink's Song." I've been reluctant to make more available partly because of the copyright problems and partly because they take up a lot of space on the server and a lot of bandwidth to download. (Just one of those MP3 files is bigger than the rest of the Web site put together. The CD quality .wav files are ten times bigger than that!)

I'll ask Sue and Terrea if there's any other specific songs they'd like to see made available here and we'll see what comes of it. Setting up a pay-per-download system would be very complex and ambitious, but I'll look into that, too.

Hi Jerry!

I haven't been to the site for a long time. Very chuffed to see my 'guest book' idea has worked. And the site just keeps getting better and better. Your next mission should you decide to accept it: creating Terrea Lea downloads for cd's. I'm sure a price could be agreed that would satisfy all.....i'm waiting with my pocket money!

It's fixed!

It took a near complete rewrite of the main line code, but the Guest Book is once again fully functional. I'm sorry this took so long to complete, but it's finally done. Thanks to all for your patience.

OH MY Gosh! Imagine my surprise at finding Terrea Lea's name on a web-search for some subject! I was a frequent visitor at the Garret in my youth (I'm thinkin' 1965-66). What a treat to see a blast from my past. I gotta go home find her album and listen to it again.

Hi to all of you! Have a great holiday season and a terrific New Year. We are still having a rough time without our beloved B.J., hangin' in though, life goes on and so do we. Thanks again to Jerry for this great website. Hope more people will visit next year. Sure would love to hear from more "Garretites". Love to everyone from Terrea and Sue

This was a great place that my friends and I could hang out when we were teenagers in the mid 60s. I remember when Terrea Lea would harrass anyone who dared get up to leave in the middle of her act. It was a wonderful atmosphere and worth the trip from Westchester.
