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.

“In a two decade stretch where we've seen Rock-n-Roll mostly pushed aside by record labels interested in serving up pre-packaged pop songs lacking any real taste and texture, it is exciting to discover a young band that recognizes and embraces Rock's roots in American blues and jazz, and plays that music with real musicianship and joy. In this debut CD, The Wheresville Project reminds us that Rock-n-Roll is meant to be fun ("Kicks" and "No One to Dance With"), but it can also be tender ("Ain't Worth My Time," "Elizabeth" and "Four Years and Cities") and aggressive ("Sinner," "Right Stuff at the Right Time" and "Rumor Mill). This young band doesn't pretend to be hipster cool or musically avant garde. They are a little Gaslight Anthem meets Red Hot Chili Peppers, and whether they are putting down a chest-thumping, danceable bass and drum groove or a testosterone-driven guitar moan, The Wheresville Project makes Rock-n-Roll sound and feel like Rock-n-Roll once again.”
