Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Charlotte Uptown


Four times each year (winter, spring, autumn, holidays), Tosco Music Parties feature performances of one or two songs by a variety of approximately 15 scheduled acts (professional and amateur). Every June for the past 15 years, Tosco Music hosts a Beatles Tribute in the same format – only all Beatles songs for every performance and singalong! These sellout performances have become a favorite Tosco Music event and group outing for friends and families across Charlotte.

In 2019, Tosco Music will expand Beatles Tribute into FABFEST, a full weekend of events drawing fans of the Fab Four from across the region to Charlotte!

Tosco Music's first annual FABFEST includes:

TWO evening concerts at the beautiful 1,200-seat Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts

The Fab Four - Friday, June 14, 2019 presented by Tosco Music & MaxxMusic
Tosco Music Beatles Tribute - Saturday, June 15, 2019


TWO weekend days of live music, speakers and activities on Saturday & Sunday at Fairfield by Marriott in Charlotte Uptown including: speakers, memorabilia, vinyl, appraisals, Beatles Art Contest, trivia and costume 60's Best Dressed Contests, rare Beatles concert footage, kid's music and crafts, and more!

Featured guests include

  • The music parties are an indie-music institution in Charlotte, so popular they often fill a 1,200-seat hall, with a roster of performers that has included everyone from American Idol contestants to The Avett Brothers.

  • What started 20 years ago as a jam session in John Tosco’s living room has bloomed into one of the region’s most unique regional events – and a coveted gig for unsigned artists.

  • A Tosco Music Party is a theatre in the round of sorts for acoustic musicians. It's a medium that breaks down artificial barriers between entertainers and audience.

  • Maybe you’ve never heard the new folk trio out of Chapel Hill or the dulcimer player from Appalachia. Maybe you’ll marvel over a double-necked guitar solo or a 13-year-old classical pianist. Whatever you’re seeking, this incredible, quarterly variety show will make you grateful to have John Tosco curating your musical adventure.

  • Think of Tosco Music Party as the musical equivalent of walking into Ben & Jerry's and saying: 'I'd like a spoonful of everything, please.'
