You were exactly the right musician for this service -- low key, calming and welcoming, with great familiarity with this genre of music; you sang it all in such a way that we knew your heart was in it. You added so much to the services.

Many thanks to you, and yes indeed, we will bring you back to help us again.

-- Judith Newman, for Unitarian Church,         Santa Fe, NM    March 2010

Parties, etc. -- New Mexico and Beyond!!


I laughed. I cried. I got in touch with my inner child and bought him an ice cream cone.
Then I laughed some more. -Eliot Kohen

Jim's casual, unscripted stage presence provides an intimacy with his audience
that few performers attain. His self-deprecating humor, rather than projecting any
self-consciousness, simply brings the audience closer.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening of entertainment. -Louise Drlik

The gentle humor and rich warmth of the evening linger long after the last chord
has faded. -Beth Lehman

The joy of hosting you at our Raton Home Dinner Concert was twofold...the audience delighted (as evidenced by almost continuous laughter) in your unique perspective on life, people, and events, and we delighted in having you as our guest Your performance was so much appreciated by Al and me and all the others, many of whom have called me to say how much they enjoyed you and the evening. Nothing so inspiring and fun as a Renaissance Man!
          -- Joan of Raton (NM)

Funny, warm, enthusiastic, joyous and inexpensive. See this show! -Howard Singer

Terr created a room full of love. -Santa Fe Reporter

Jim's music creates a relaxed intimacy that makes you think, chuckle, flinch, and even regard ourselves with a bit more gentleness.
-The Celebration (Sunday ecumenical gathering), Santa Fe, NM

Wit, charm, irony--and good music, too! -Elizabeth West

Jim Terr writes songs like some people carry their lunch. I laughed. I cried. I drank

Bravo!! Thank you very much for your great performance at this year's New Mexico Veterinary Medical Association Banquet. You were a definite hit.

on how entertaining your humor was. It was the highlight of our meeting.
-Santa Fe Convention & Visitors Bureau

Thank you for your wonderful entertainment at our fund-raiser.

As is your custom, you have offered another wonderful performance of your work. We loved it.

Often appearing with Jim Terr (or without him) is the fabulously down-to-earth entertainer, "BuDDy", quickly becoming a major star of the music, film and performance worlds.
Get him while he's affordable!

"A musical tribute from BuDDy is like a passionate kiss
from a large St. Bernard: Unforgettable!" -Hodding Carter

The Tricklock Reptilian Lounge audience LOVES BuDDy; they eat him up. BuDDy is profoundly amazing ... with a guitar, a pot belly, and a sincere desire to just want to be your friend. BuDDy is instantly likeable - spouting satirical songs and attitudes with such fresh innocence, unaware that he is hitting the heart ... Who knew that a pot-bellied, sincere, simple red-neck could be so damn loveable!
-- Kerry Morrigan, producer and co-host,
Tricklock Theater's Reptilian Lounge, Albuquerque, NM

I am totally a fan of BuDDy's...I think if more Amurricans could just see things from his point of view (although he DOES heroically admit that his past has its flaws) well, we'd just be a lot better off, that's all. It's so refreshing to come across someone with no hidden agenda, who just wants to be my friend. Have you got any bumper stickers out for BuDDy?
--The Legendary Panama Red

BuDDy's repertoire of sensitive, insightful songs, often written on the very day of
performance, move his audience to tears and laughter in unexpected ways.

Just to name a few: "I Meant Every Word of Whatever I Said", "What Do You Need with a Woman Like That (When You Could Have a Man Like Me)?", "Come Here Darlin', This Won't Hurt a Bit", "Tell Your Husband I'm Coming Over", and "Fifty Year Old Lover" ( "...Don't be afraid of a little gray hair, that's the badge of well-spent years / Don't be turned off by them curly whiskers growin' outta my ears / Don't turn away from the smell of Ben Gay, steamin' offa my skin / Just try my lovin' one time, you'll be comin' back again..." )
