Terry Reilley


Bass Guitar.


Having played drums since the age of five, I've been in and out of the music performance circuit in Atlanta for quite some time. I've performed semi-professionally in the past and have a great work ethic. I'm a trained musician, so I can read charts and am a technical player. I can play groove to fusion and I have no preference as long as I'm performing with a group that wants to have a great time without all the drama, excessive drinking/drugs, and craziness!

Would like to perform with either an original group or a tribute band of some kind, such as Toto, Journey, Styx, Foreigner, etc. Open to putting a group together from scratch if need be.

Music taste is pretty diverse, but I'm not into country (or Western, lol). I'm a technical player, meaning that I like a challenge, but not into speed metal anymore.

Drummer influences:
Simon Phillips
Tony Thompson
Carter Beauford
Neil Peart (like you'd have to ask that one!)
Mike Portnoy



Pearl Crystal Beat 8-piece acrylic kit
Yamaha Maple Custom 8 piece kit
Sabian cymbals
Yamaha DTX-950 Electronic Kit
Yamaha DTX-Multi12 Pad
Depending on the gig, I adjust the number of drums in my set accordingly.

I have a house with a nice-sized basement in Canton, Georgia, which I would prefer to rehearse at if possible but not a deal breaker by any means.
