As for making his way to a stage in Alexandria, Mahar said he met Terry Kennedy - a member of AAAA - through his guitars and that one thing led to another and he is now performing at the theater.

His performance will probably include everything from Bob Dylan to The Beetles as well as many of his own songs.
