Working construction and other odd jobs in the beach community of Oak Island about 15 years ago, Bryan Mayer was told he had a good voice and should try giving music a shot.

Today,  he’s making trips to Nashville, Tenn., has shared the stage with some of country’s and southern rock’s top acts and has a video out for his song “Leaving Town.”

Mayer is scheduled to perform beginning at 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Kegs on West Main Street in Havelock.

Mayer said he was encouraged to play bass in his middle school band because of his height.

“I fell in love with it,” he said. “I ended up getting a guitar and started a garage band in the eighth grade.”

Mayer, the son of a former Harrier pilot who spent many years at Cherry Point, went to East Carolina University after graduating from New Bern High School in 1995.

“Maybe I was spending more time playing guitar than I was going to class,” he joked of his time at ECU. “College didn’t work out so well for me.”
