What a great night! We truly enjoyed the show and so did all the kids and families. Music and humor were on point! Tyler Creek Campground first annual Halloween party was a success thanks to Terry O.
Thanks so much for coming out to Tyler Creek Golf & Campground to play for our guests. The word on the street is that everyone loved your musical talent. We will definitely book you to come back out later this season and into next season if you enjoyed playing for us. Thank you again so much! Jen, talent booking agent for Tyler Creek
Response from Terry O - Acoustic Musician:
Thanks Jen. I had a great time and enjoyed meeting many of the campers. I would love to come back and play again.
Terry was exactly what we had envisioned for our open house. Terry arrived to the party with plenty of time to set up before any guests arrived. He played a wide variety of music that helped to create a fun and entertaining environment. Guests were very impressed with his amazing guitar and singing talent. We would HIGHLY recommend Terry for your event! We hope to have him back in the future!

What to Expect
When you see me perform, you'll hear classic pop and country tunes, along with a few jazz standards, as well as a few comedic type songs. All of my lyrics are "clean" and safe for any family member to listen to. I'll play guitar and sing, and thanks to the wonders of modern technology, I can sound like one voice or two or three! You won't be disappointed!
I'm a singer/guitarist who has been playing guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, and some keyboards for over 30 years. I have played in a variety of bands, covering all types of music including classic rock, pop, country, jazz, Christmas, and more. I have played at clubs, bars, churches, weddings, fairs, and all kinds of miscellaneous events. I have even played at a luau! My song list is deep...currently covering more than 400 songs, but I have played more than 1000 songs during my playing career.
I have a background in music education as a public school music teacher, and I have spent more than 20 years as a radio broadcaster. I have also been a free lance music reviewer writer and a held down a few other jobs as well, but it has always been about the music!
When I play for your event, you can expect quality performing, music that the entire family can listen to (meaning "clean"), and I go the extra mile to make sure that you are satisfied and getting your money's worth.
I know how to entertain and my experience proves it!
