Join us for an evening of music starring the Wag. They are excited to raise some money to help repair the museum. This show is a ‘Thank You’ to the AHHS as The Wag filmed their 1st music video at the historic museum and that it will be released on the day of the show! 

“If the Beatles and the Cowsills got it on backstage at Ed Sullivan, The Wag would totally be their love child.” -Wil Wheaton

Peter Prasa is an old soul with a musical talent for telling stories and creating emotions through song.  When describing Peter’s voice, it is said to be extremely soulful and ultimately smokey.  With an arsenal of songs that tell stories of past love and heartache, Peter utilizes his talent to spin highly visual tales of life’s ups and downs like few others can. His latest foray into musical exploration is called Poets & Heroes.
