Terry (Patrick) Mingle has been playing guitar in bands throughout NY and PA since 1980. Some musicians she has worked with (in the studio and/or in bands) have since landed recording deals in bands such as The Raunchettes, The Phenolbarbidols, The Badlees, and the Goo Goo Dolls. The last band she was in was called NASTY HABIT, and the band was very popular in the Central NY area from 1999 through 2005. NASTY HABIT played shows with/opened for artists such as Nazareth, Iron Butterfly, Jefferson Starship, The Rods, and David "Rock" Feinstein (former member of ELF, The Rods guitarist, and cousin of Ronnie James Dio). The band also played two years in a row (consecutively, in 2004 and 2005) for the Saturday evening concert portion of the Watkins Glen International Raceway's annual NASCAR race weekend. They were featured on the cover of the April 2000 issue of the Central NY music magazine Music Outlook, along with Ronnie James Dio (who also hails from Cortland, NY). NASTY HABIT had many local and international partners, including Guinness beer, Cabo Wabo Tequila (Sammy Hagar's tequila), I-100 (99.9FM) rock radio (they were the official morning show band), Fitzgibbons Racing (their logo was featured on the hood of the local speedway champion for the entire race season in 2005 - TJ Fitzgibbons, #14), and Coffeemania.
Terry is currently performing with the Central NY band BLUE MONDAY. The band is busy making arrangements to open for The Rods in the summer of 2008, when The Rods release their much-anticipated new CD (the first one in approximately 20 years, which also includes Ronnie James Dio on a few tracks). You can visit BLUE MONDAY online at their MySpace:

Terry has played many different guitars over the past 25+ years, but iGuitars are the only guitars she plans to add to her collection from now on. They are well-made, easy to play, and sound great! She plays her iGuitars through Line 6 amps.
