Tosco Music Beatles Tribute 2024

As part of FabFest, the weekend celebration of Beatles music unlike anything else in the Southeast, the Tosco Music Beatles Tribute will kick off with a Beatles party to end all Beatles parties!
For over 30 years, Tosco Music Parties (or TMPs) have been showcasing local Charlotte area musicians and bands. Each year, one of the most beloved and well attended of the TMPs is the Tosco Music Beatles Tribute, which has grown to become a part of what is now the Southeast’s premier Beatles festival, FabFest.
From Beatles covers faithfully recreating the band’s iconic sound, to completely re-imagined work, performed by local, national and International performers, the Tosco Music Beatles Tribute engages audiences of all ages to enjoy and sing along.

TOSCO MUSIC is the non-profit behind the magic of FabFest. We're about cultivating music of all genres, musicians of all ages, and community from all backgrounds... one song at a time!

The show is interlaced with audience singalongs of the famous tunes that everyone knows so well. See video highlights of past Tosco Music Beatles Tributes here

  • 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.'
