This week's featured guest: SAT., AUG 4TH - ERIC MAHAR

("Guitars that ate yo momma" - part one)

The Anchorage
186 Ricardo St.
Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON

Yes, our good pal, Eric Mahar, is coming back. Eric's an amazing guitarist with a wonderful voice. We've been playing together off and on now since the early '90s and we'll be doing a bunch of our tunes from the Fringe Locals' songbook. Joining in will be Fringe Locals and NRS alumnus Herb Nelson on keyboards.

This is also part one of our new feature, "Guitars that ate yo momma", wherein we pair our guest guitarist with the Niagara Rhythm Section's (NRS) house guitarist, Steve Grisbrook, for some string & mind-bending guitar madness.

Sunday, August 5 - 8 p.m. - 11 p.m.
