Terreon Gully

Terreon Gully is an exceptional musician whose voice of choice is drumset. As a diverse musician, he has mastered a variety of musical styles: straight ahead, funk, fusion, Afro-Cuban, big band, drum and bass, rhythm and blues, hip hop, pop and gospel. In addition to drumset, Terreon’s musical abilities expand to include writing, producing, and arranging.

A native of East St. Louis, Illinois, Terreon, or “Tank” as his colleagues affectionately call him, began his musical journey performing drum set as a child in church. Pursuing his love for music, Terreon joined the world renowned Lincoln Senior High School Jazz Ensemble under the leadership of Director Ronald Carter. Furthering his education, Terreon attended the University of Houston in Houston, Texas, where his mentor Marvin Sparks, Director of Percussion Studies, introduced him to the wide world of percussion. While attending the university Terreon met his future wife Ramona Houston, Ph.D. In 1996, Terreon graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance. Being exposed to various genres and aspects of the music industry throughout his life, Terreon naturally progressed into a career in music. Upon graduation, Terreon moved to Atlanta to explore the possibilities of music in the Southeast. He later moved to New York City in 1998, where he now lives and continues his musical journey.
