Terry Dougherty - Acoustic Bass

Cape May NJ resident Terry Dougherty provides the acoustic bass for the Herb Moore Trio. At the age of 16, Terry began playing in the South Jersey area in 1975. For over 35 years Terry has pursued his love for music playing many instruments before finding a personal connection in the acoustic bass. Terry has worked with numerous bands and musicians ranging from dance music to jazz and has traveled with several bands working up and down the east coast. After studying at Rowan University (Glassboro at the time) pursuing Music Education, Terry widened his knowledge in the music business by learning the craft of musical instrument repair. Owning his own repair shop for several years increased his exposure and appreciation for all music forms.  Terry resides in Cape May with his son.
