Teppei Teranishi is the lead guitarist and keyboard player of the post-hardcore band Thrice. Before his musical journey took off, he helped establish Active Ride Shop’s first Orange County store (Irvine, Ca.) in the year 2000. As the humble Irvine store grew in popularity so did Thrice. While on the road to success, Teppei never lost touch with Active’s roots and still keeps close ties with the Active family. In 2016, Active R/S is proud to feature Teppei Teranishi as a part of We Are Shop Built.
