HAGERSTOWN - John Tesh fans from across the Tri-State area flocked to rub elbows with the musician and radio star Saturday night at the AVA lounge on South Potomac Street in Hagerstown.
The meet-and-greet preceded Tesh's performance later Saturday at The Maryland Theatre.
Fans started flowing into AVA's about 5 p.m. Tesh arrived about 30 minutes later wearing casual attire with a backward baseball cap.
Tesh, a former co-host of "Entertainment Tonight," seemed a little stiff at first. He kept his hands on his hips as adoring fans quickly surrounded him and began snapping photographs. In a few minutes, however, he appeared to loosen and chatted with people who asked for his autograph.
"He is exactly like he is on the air," said Karen King of Charlottesville, Va., referring to Tesh's "Intelligence for Your Life" radio program. "He's very personable."
