Terry O'ke host Terry O'Brien Terry O'ke host Terry O'Brien
CAPE MAY – Terry O’ke is 10 years old, which is pretty old in dog terms, and an incredible lifetime for a goldfish.
Terry O’ke is the brain child and business name of Terry O’Brien. The “O’ke” part comes from karaoke, which in Japanese means “without orchestra,” and is the name given for singing with recorded music.
The apostrophe in O’ke is a tribute to the Irish, as in O’Brien.
At a recent event, O’Brien had just finished a two-and-a-half hour set of Kiddie O’ke at Congress Hall that had been scheduled for two hours. He said Kiddie O’ke, the kid version of Terry O’ke, always runs over because of the demand.
“I could probably do three or four hours of Kiddie O’ke,” he said.
