Bean first heard downhome blues at home. His father Eddie Bean, a native of Bruce, sang and played blues guitar and prior to Terry’s birth traveled with an electric blues band.

For many years Eddie Bean, who died in 1985, hosted informal music and gambling gatherings at the family’s house on 'Bean Hill' in west Pontotoc. He also worked as a sharecropper, enlisting Terry and other of his fourteen children to pick cotton in the surrounding fields.

Terry began playing guitar and harmonica as a child, and eventually his father began featuring him at the home gatherings and taking him along to other house parties. Terry decided to 'get serious' about the blues in 1988 after visiting the Delta Blues Festival in Greenville. Every weekend for three years Terry traveled to Greenville and its environs to play harmonica with James 'T-Model' Ford as well as Asie Payton at various juke joints. He also played across the Delta with artists including Lonnie Pitchford.

These days Terry travels the world solo and with his band bringing Hill Country and Delta blues to every growing authentic blues loving fan base. His live performances are an amazing example of what it means to have fire and raw power. He is one of the best living bluesman in the world and would have held his own in any generation. Terry is hands down at the top of the heap as a Harmonica and Guitar player.

On this live album, Terry "Harmonica" Bean and the Cornlickers take you back in time with "Rock This House Tonight", an incredible recording that captures the sound and furry of the house parties Terry grew up with.
