Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts

Come experience a sense of community through live music! 

Each Tosco Music Party is unique. Tosco Music Parties showcase an eclectic mix of music styles and engage the audience with singalongs throughout the evening. 

Three times each year (winter, spring, and autumn), Tosco Music Parties feature performances of one or two songs by a variety of approximately 15 scheduled acts (professional and amateur). 

Every June, Tosco Music hosts a Beatles Tribute in the same format – only all Beatles songs for every performance and singalong! In 2019, Beatles Tribute will be expanded into a full weekend of events drawing fans of the Fab Four from across the region to Charlotte!

Tickets for the Tosco Music Holiday Party on December 8, 2018 and the 2019 Tosco Music Season go on sale to to the public at 10am on November 1, 2018.

Tosco Music Members have access to purchase tickets each year starting in October (Priority Access on October 1st or Early Access on October 5th depending on membership level). If you're not among our current Tosco Music Members, please help us continue to build community through music in Charlotte - join or renew today

  • 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.'
