Meet the band...
Lead Guitar, Vocals
Phillip is a founding member of Four Barrel. He has been playing guitar since the age of fifteen. Phillip started his musical journey in the fifth grade playing trumpet and continued playing brass instruments through twelfth grade. During this time Phillip performed with school wind ensembles on brass and also found time to jam and perform on guitar with friends (including bass player Tim) even placing third in a local talent show. Phillip's influences include Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Randy Rhodes, Eric Clapton, and many more. "As a youngster I would have never picked up a guitar if it weren't for my brother's cool music collection". "Thanks Bro!"On stage Phillip unleashes high energy rock and roll with a blazing blues-rock style.
Teri may not have been born on stage... but it was close! It's rumored that she danced before she walked -- Always singing, performing for family and wearing out the record player needle playing songs over and over. At eight, she sang "Rhinestone Cowboy" with a local band on stage for a large crowd. That little taste of the stage hooked her. She watched every show about music... "The Osmonds". "Soul Train", "Solid Gold", and "American Bandstand". As a teen, she discovered Pat Benatar's "Crimes of Passion" album during a summer with her sister and by summer's end that tape was spent. After that summer she sang all the time. At home, with friends, in choir and just about any place she could get away with it.
A friend suggested she try Weekend Warriors and join a band. It was a success - she's still hooked on performing. That Warrior band provided her a second shot fronting a band and she kicked it off with "Hit Me with your Best Shot". Ever since, Teri has been giving it her best shot fronting several bands including Unlicensed Therapy, Straight Shooter and Press Play
Grazing on the local life as a native Woodlander, Dale picked up the bass at the age of 15 cutting his musical teeth on rock, blues and jazz into the mid-70’s. In ‘75 he got a nudge from a friend to move to Santa Cruz where he dove into the music scene head-first playing bass in 3 different original bands and doing some recording. After ping-ponging from Woodland back to the Bay area and back again to Woodland, Dale got the itch to move to Los Angeles in ’84, where the live rock scene was exploding. Almost immediately he was able to hook up with several music projects and by the fall of ’85, found himself in a comedy/music group on a national tour as the opener for the legendary Minutemen. In ’92, Dale released his first solo record, “Uncle Dale, Tell’n Stories” and started playing solo gigs in various coffee houses and clubs around SoCal. He eventually formed the Rubatos who were known for their tangents of improvisation mixed into the list of Dale’s original songs. Along with the Rubatos, Dale enjoyed a long run playing clubs and festivals with bands ranging from punk rock to blues to improv from 1985 to 2014. Dale even brought the Rubatos to Woodland to perform at Plainfield Station with… Four Barrel as the opener!!! After 33+ years in Los Angeles, Dale moved back to Woodland in 2017 and by chance met up with Phillip at a local hardware store. Both happen to be looking for a new water heater and as it turns out, Phillip just happened to also be looking for a bass player… and the rest is history! Dale brings a rocking bottom end that compliments the fun and high energy of Four Barrel.
