Every serious drummer has been influenced by New Orleans style drumming at some point in their development. With a unique blend of slinky street beats, New Orleans funk, R&B, zydeco, blues, traditional jazz, and swing, gives New Orleans Drummers that thang!!!.....But don't get it twisted, "New Orleans style of drumming is not method book friendly, It's all about the feel of it, It's a feeling thing and It's part of the fabric of New Orleans".
Terence was born in New Orleans in 1970 and was raised in the suburb of old Algiers. He was introduced to the drums at a very young age by his great grandfather and he has been playing ever since.
