The Beatles formed in Liverpool in 1960 and built their reputation playing clubs until gaining popularity in the United Kingdom after their first single, "Love Me Do", became a hit in late 1962. They acquired the nickname the "Fab Four" as Beatlemania grew in Britain over the following year. Fifty years later, Fab For Spartanburg brings together local musicians to pay homage to the group that became one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. This one-night event promises to entertain with a multi-generational list of performers playing their own interpretations of Beatles songs, from pop ballads to psychedelic rock – and they're all doing it for a good cause. Proceeds from the show will stay with HUB-BUB, an organization that supports live music and nurtures young talent.
The event will feature Shane Pruitt Band, David Ezell, Fayssoux McClean & Brandon Turner, The Tad Taylor Band, Wes Wyatt and The Bluegrass Messengers, The Wheresville Project, Rachel Chalmers & Nicholas Hewson, and special guests. Music aficionado and radio host, Sander Morrison will emcee the show.
