Ben Campos,
We met a few years ago.
Your mother Renee and your Father Phil sang at Nippersink when we first met.
Your mother sang at my sons BarMitzvah.
We live in Las Vegas and also saw her at the temple where she sang.
We would like very much to get in touch with her.

hi terrea,
hope you are doing well. i thought you would get a kick out of my story. my mother was in so. calif in 1954 and still hadn't picked out a name for her newborn. she and her sister went and saw you perform and my mom thought your name was so pretty,she named me for you.
i just found your cd and enjoyed your music tremendously!

Thanks so much for this page. I spent my early guitar years at the Garret hoping to play one song and did many times. I have been a touring professional entertainer since 1970 and Terrea Lea was one of my early inspirations.
I still play "When the World was Young." I also still have my Red Vinyl album with Terrea's signature on the back, signed June 1961. What a great walk for me down memory lane. Thanks so much for providing the pics, memories, and all the other stuff. My love to Terrea and My thanks to all who came to the Garret.. 1960-1964. I still play about 10 or so Bud and Travis tunes too but mostly comedy now.

I loved, loved, loved the Garret. My sis is 8 years older than me, and it was a great place a teen could go with her older sister. Loved the music. Learned to drink espresso too young (remember that Terrea had to plan her songs around the espresso machine.)
Wish it were here today. Fooey with Starbucks, the Garret was the real coffee house!

Terrea, Just to let you know that after many years, I am sending "HEALING" thoughts your way! I was one of many who came to hear you sing. Your "Hello Stranger" and many other songs represented hours of soul work for me. Although I was very young in many ways...your music was a safe place for me to reside..if only for a short time. I am so pleased to have found this site! If you perhaps remember a very shy long haired wavy red head right up front listening was me.........
again, warmest regards,
PS. I used to hang out with John Cote for a time......

The Garret was my home away from home. I loved it! I was so sad when it closed. My best memories are of taking different friends to The Garret. Thanks for everything.

Just a note to say how are you doing? I see a note from Jo Mapes..I remember her from a folksong cafe in Washington, DC in 1963..she sang "The San Francisco Bay Blues" it was the first time I ever heard that tune and was blown completely was the inspiration for me to start a club in Rochester, NY in 1969. Where is Jo Mapes today?

Hey Terrea! How are you, you gorgeous thing you? Am remembering you singing at the Garret. How lovely it was.

So happy to have found this site. Scarry pics of our projects. Is there an update on Terrea's condition? I have stayed in S. Cal and teach now.

How the hell are you? I'll always cherish the memories of you and B.J., the Garret being in my "front yard", and the evenings spent listening to your warm, rich voice. Along with many others, I thank you for the Garret.
Be well,

I just found one of my Terrea Lea Albums. This is one I bought at the Garret in the 60's. It's the white one with a drawing of Terrea on the right side. It's in very good shape. Do you need it?

I have been searching for any info about Jo Mapes. Found referneces to this site on MudCat Cafe and, sure enuff, there are 2 entries! I have heard that she is living in the Chicago suburbs---a far cry from her Crilly Court digs in the 60's and 70's! I still her her Kelloggs commercial for Raisin Bran in my mind once in a while!!! Great Voice, Great Gal!

It is really great to find this site. I enjoyed going there in the early 60's with Yvonne Seifert/Siefert [aka: Darren Taylor] who introduced me to the Garrett and the wonderful music and people there. Perhaps someone remembers Yvonne as a person, [HHS graduate] or as an entertainer in the Hollywood/North Hollywood area. Please let me know if you do know how she is doing.
I still have my "Terrea Lea at the Garrett" album which I break out every few years so I can get depressed about how time flies and music regresses in quality :-).
Thanks for the memories--------dennis

What a hoot. A friend told me about the web site. I was an employee for a short while. For a long time I was a regular client. I remember burning pizzas, filling the place with smoke and the smell of burned bread and the never ending games of pool. What incredibly fond memories.

Hi Terrea
I hope you are feeling better and recovering quickly.
I first started singing at the Garret when I was just a skinny 17 year old runaway from Hometown, Illinois, fresh on the streets of as the grass & borrowing guitars and soaking in the magical musical scene that was going down all over Hollywood.
How well I remember the tiny stage and mics..the pool tables..the round fire place..and the comradary of the performers.
(In my studio I have a pic of myself signing at the Garret in 67. My girlfriend snapped it.)
(LOL)I was pretty horrible back then, but you have to start somewhere, and Terrea's wonderful little club helped me refine my talent and afford me the chance to get up there and sing to a real audience.
Afterwards, my gorlfriend Charlotte and I would hit Canters for a late night breakfast..or maybe catch a silent movie at the old Silent Movie Theater just down the street.
I cherish those times and will always be grateful for the opportunity Terrea and the Garret afforded me with.
God Bless you and the Garret, Terrea.....get well.

I was updating my journal about my eclectic musical experiences & recalled hanging out at Cosmos Alley when Stan Wilson owned it & spending much more time at the Garret. I've lost my Terrea Lea vinyls & found this site trying fill in memory lapses. I spent many Friday & Saturday nights at the Garret. I recall how Terrea would pause her songs to let the cappucino machine shriek.
