Steeped in Sky-is-Cring Texas Blues, the roadhouse-shaking Chicago Blues of Hound Dog Taylor, and the greasy Blues-rock of early ZZ Top....the band, anchored by Davidson's considerable skill and tasteful guitar tone, digs a deep groove and operates in it for just the right amount of time." - The Columbus Dispatch 12/04

The band has received radio air play on each of their CD's.
Terry Davidson & the Gears have performed their music on a nationally
televised Daytona Beach special.



The enduring musical relationship between the band members is evident. Drummer Bob "The Wrench" Hanners and Terry have been jamming since they were in elementary school. Bassist Bart Jenkins brings great vocals and a rockin attitude. Ray Fuller on harp goes back many years with Terry as well.

One reviewer comments:
"The songwriting skillfully blends the band's Blues roots with influences
spanning from Jazz to Surf music. The journeymen rhythm section
grooves & burns while the raw, stripped down production showcases
Terry's sometimes mean, sometimes smooth guitar playing. The harmonica
and keyboards give a wonderful texture, never competing to be in the
spotlight. Terry's vocals range from laid back and clean as on "Slow and
Easy" to low down and dirty as on "Blood", fitting each song nicely. A great set from a seasoned band."
T. D. & the G's have performed in shows with many of the world's greatest
Blues and Rock & Roll artists. Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter,
Chuck Berry, Link Way, and The Fabulous Thunderbird, to name just a few.
