Terry A La Barry (Terry Hall)
Singer & Songwriter
Kids Show Performer
Terry Hall is rarely known by that name. He mostly goes by the name Terry A La Berry. The full time drummer for Arlo Guthrie for over twenty years, Terry has played in bands with many musicians, including long time pals, Andy Gordon, and Paul Rice. That is how The Spurs USA were introduced to this wonderful and gifted man. He joined The Spurs USA in 2014 and has been with us for most of our gigs. When he isn’t with us he is working his full time gig with Arlo, on the road for many sold out shows across the country. He did set time aside to help on our latest CD, “Keepin It Real”.
Terry’s first love is performing for children, which he has done for more than 20 years in venues stretching from the White House to the Miami Children’s Museum and everywhere in between. In his other “life” as long-time drummer for Arlo Guthrie he appears on many of Guthrie’s recordings including the Grammy nominated “Grow Big”. Terry writes and records many of his own songs for kids which he performs in schools and libraries across the region. He focuses on topics that help kids boost their self-esteem and increase awareness of anti-bullying, teaching kindness and love instead. His latest CD’s have also enhanced awareness of rescue dogs and shelters. Some of his Spurs USA bandmates help him out by donating their time to singing and playing on his tunes, but it is secretly a passion that they all love and are honored to share.
