Due to his love of The Beatles he was considered a "Beatles trivia expert" by the time he was in Grade 5.  His fascination with the history of pop music grew and grew.  He began collecting books on music history and began analyzing the weekly Billboard Music Charts to stay on top of the industry and the trends of radio and his listeners.  To this date Terry still stays on top of the top songs on the pop, rock, and country charts in the USA and Canada.  He has been doing his own weekly favorite music charts now for 26 years!!  He is the king of trivia and is the world champion at music trivia on the Maxx trivia games system.  

Terry put out his own fanzine of music history titled Yesterday And Today when he was 17 and later would become a DJ where he hosted a weekly radio program on the history of pop music covering the music trends of 1940 to 1992.  These shows titled "History Lesson" are all available on CD for anyone interested in knowing how things really happened!    In 2001 he started the billboard charts email group online which now consists of almost 400 members worldwide who discuss all aspects of music charts new and old.   You can join by sending an email to billboardcharts-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

In 2012 Terry attempted to make the Guinness Book World of Records for taking his music data and compiling the worlds largest detailed song list - Terry's personal TOP 4500 Greatest Songs Of All Time list at http://www.saskatoonsnaps.com/favoritesongs.htm


From professional music videos to interest in archiving cemeteries, wedding ceremonies, local music talent, family history etc Terry has over 3,000 videos posted on http://www.youtube.com under the account "hoknes".   His videos in total have been watched 350,000 times and he constantly adds more videos for public viewing.    He promotes his own music online through music videos and also makes videos for other performers etc.  He has turned 1/2 of his house into a giant chroma-key green screen video studio. 


Terry's interest in music and history led him to start filming documentaries on specific music/history themed projects.   In 2001 he went to Hamburg, Germany to film the Reeperbahn and the clubs and area that The Beatles originally performed at during 1960-1962.   In 2002 Terry went to New York to film the ruins of the World Trade Center and all the tributes and banners posted throughout Manhattan.  In 2002 he went to Memphis, Tennessee for the 25th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley filming 30 different locations and sites that Elvis had lived, worked at or was connected with during his life.   In 2004 he filmed a video showcasing all the Saskatoon locations relating to Joni Mitchell.    Terry has also filmed many weddings, music events and concerts and other historic events in Saskatoon.   Some samples of clips can be seen on youtube.com   He started a new green screen chromakey video and audio studio in 2011 and has made numerous official music videos which can be seen by going to www.youtube.com and searching for Terry Hoknes Official.

He has filmed music videos and tons of live performances for bands such as:  One Bad Son, All Together Now, Walker Stone, Skaravan 1969, BC Read, Lyn Besse McGinnis, Tom Kennedy, Glenn Adair, Marilyn Faye Parney, Glen Royer, Max Karama, Ovide Pilon, Kelly Read, Wilma Groenen, and many more


Began sequencing music for Marilyn Faye Parney's show in 1994 when we decided to try this new technology and would it be the main focus of the live show for 10 years.  Terry and Marilyn could tour as a duo yet sound like a 6 piece band.  Terry put together an extensive set list of over 20 hours worth of material to perform live with over 700 songs sequenced.  (rock, country, pop, blues, alternative, gospel, etc)  He has created sequences that are being used by performers and bands all across North America. 


Terry began collecting vinyl records when he was 10 and had 4000 albums and singles by the time he was 18.  He began a mission of trying to collect a copy of every song to make the Top 10 from 1940 to 1990.  In 2000 he switched formats and now collects music recordings in mp3 format.  He now has every hit song to ever make national radio from 1940-2011 and has over 100,000 songs currently in mp3 format.  


Terry got his first taste of speaking/performing in front of a big crowd when he was asked to host his school assemblies in Grade 5 and 8.  Terry began playing along with his Beatles records with his best friend, Zender Millar (who now performs bass with Oral Fuentes http://oralfuentes.com/main.cfm ).  They began to learn songs and record them.  This eventually led to Terry to begin songwriting and studying music history. 

Terry gave himself the nickname of Doc Rock! in 1986 when he was in high school because his life revolved around music.  He doesn't use the nickname anymore but many of his friends from the early 90's still call him by his nickname.   He now is nicknamed Orange Lucy which is also the name of his current original music band.

Terry studied his first year of University at St Peters College (Muenster, SK).  He performed the church organ at numerous special church services at St Peters College (1990).  After that year he moved back home and worked as the Stage Manager for Corelli Strings Orchestra at the University of Saskatchewan (1990-92)  and he was the stage manager and played double bass in the University of Saskatchewan Wind Orchestra (1990).

Now that he was 19 he joined his first bar band The Smoking Crawdads which mixed 60's british rock with modern punk and some of Terry's originals too!  Mark Rogstad (lead vocals, guitar), Gerard Saretsky (vocals, lead guitar), Jed Evans (drums)

He helped entertain children at the Saskatchewan Children's Festival (1990-91) and in 1991 he sang, played double bass and acted in a role in Harry Chapin's musical "Cotton Patch Gospel" put on by Gateway Players Drama Company.  Along with Saretsky and Evans of The Smoking Crawdads they went off and put out a album of 60's inspired originals as "Blackberry Way" which received heavy airplay from the local community radio station.

From 1991 to 1993 Terry hosted his own radio program on the history of pop music in America covering the years 1940 to 1992 called "History Lesson" on CFCR FM 90.5 which aired weekly for 85 shows.  He wrote his own scripts and used material mostly from his own extensive library.  He also was one of a number of hosts during a jazz program titled "Swing Shift".

In late 1991 Terry started up the International "Planet Of The Apes" Fan Club with its own bi-monthly fanzine.  Terry had always had a fascination with this science fiction movie series and began to share info about the series with members from Canada, USA, England, Germany, Brazil and Australia. He has been the president and publisher since then.  He has self published all 50 issues of the fanzine "Ape Chronicles".  When the new POTA movie came out in 2001 radio stations and journalists around the world were contacting Terry for interviews and his reviews of the film.

He began working at both Tramps Music locations in Saskatoon, hired to sell music (1991-93) but became more and more interested in comic books.   When Tramps Music opened a separate store for comic books, Terry began working there from its opening day at Collectors Edge (1993).

At this time he joined his first serious touring band What's His Name And The Other Guys (1992-93) with Doug Bodie (vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin), Keith Read (vocals, drums) and Kelly Read (vocals, guitar).   He also started up a band called The Shade (1992-93) with Rob Ford (bass) and Kevin Buzinski (drums), which played many of Terry's originals plus obscure covers by Terry's favorite "never-heard-of" bands. 

For a short stint in 1993 Terry co-ran the music jams each week at Stan's Place with Keith Read.    During that same year he began co running a jam with Doug Bodie at Morleys Restaurant in the Sutherland area (1993).  For a short period in 1994 along with Keith Read, co-ran a jam at the Riviera Club.  

Terry teamed up with Angie Tysseland and Andrea Menard for their female blues group performing throughout Saskatoon in 1993-1994 and recording one album that Terry produced and played the double bass and the drums on. 

From 1993-2003 Terry worked full time traveling and performing with Marilyn Faye Parney, Saskatchewan Country Music Entertainer of the Year '97.  He has been the full time music director of touring, co-ordinator of musicians, arranging/sequencing material, sound tech, roadie, and has had a big hand in promoting the show, designing newsletters, and has also been in charge of recording demos as engineer and session musician.    

Terry performed full time in The Ed Sullivan Show, tribute shows 2003-2009 including the bands England, Liverpool (tribute to the Beatles in full costume), Elton John (Terry's personal tribute on piano in full costume) and also tributes to CCR, The Monkees, The Dave Clark Five, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys and The Everly Brothers. www.hoknes.com/tributes.htm 

Terry has also been teaching music lessons full time privately  He also taught full time through Custom Music Lessons run by Mike Vancha out of Regina from 2005 to 2008.  He gives private music lessons in music theory, guitar, bass guitar and piano, organ, drums, mandolin, singing, cello, violin, recording, arranging songwriting.   He has now taught over 3000 lessons.

Since 1990 Terry has performed on albums / CD's / demo recordings for:  Marilyn Faye Parney, Bob Pringle, Andrea Menard and Angie Tysseland as H'Rattitude, Joel Grundahl, Cidne Treen, Xylon, Liv-In-Stereo, Les Barrington, The Secretions, Keith Read, Dale Enns, Bob Hoknes, Ovide Pilon / England / Liverpool, Damon Cozens, Glen Royer and Bill Risling, and the musical Chill.

He has been seriously buying comics since 1994 when he started buying books that he knew he could make a profit in which led to him selling books through Adelphi's Music from 1994-1996.  Since 1998 he sells exclusively through the Internet.  He spends many hours researching the history of comic books and their investment potential and stays in contact with many comic dealers throughout North America.   Terry hit the internet in May 1998 and quickly became a big time seller/buyer on the auction site ebay - at one point he was possibly the biggest seller in all of Canada.  He has now sold over $1 million worth of collectibles on ebay and continues strong.       He has now written 100 books specifically on the topic of Investing in vintage collectible Comic Books.  He has also been the editor and publisher of "Ape Chronicles" the fanzine dedicated to the sci-fi movie series "Planet Of The Apes" for the past 20 years and published 50 magazines all about the apes franchise.  He has also compiled and published 700 different Episode Guide Books on various TV shows.    He also published the first Weebles toyline price guide in 2011 and also books on The Beatles analyzing music theory, Rare 8-track cassettes and the last Reel To Reel music albums of the 1980's.  He currently is researching Saskatoon history and working on a series of books.   www.terryhoknes.com/saskatoon.htm
