What We Do

Tosco Music Parties are community concerts where nationally recognized acts share the stage with undiscovered artists and audience members are invited to sing along throughout the evening. In 2019, Tosco Music will expand Tosco Music Beatles Tribute into FABFEST - Charlotte's Beatles Festival, a weekend celebration drawing fans of the Fab Four from across the Southeast to Charlotte - visit for details.

From concerts and open mic nights to music scholarships and outreach, Tosco Music is dedicated to helping the community explore, develop and share their passion for music in all its forms. Born from intimate living room jam sessions in Charlotte, NC in the mid-1980’s, Tosco Music became a 501c3 nonprofit organization in 1999.

Tosco Music has evolved over three decades primarily through the grassroots efforts of passionate volunteers into a nonprofit organization whose community outreach and impact has a deeply rooted history in Charlotte. In addition to five Tosco Music Parties each year, Tosco Music also:
• nurtures youth and emerging talent with performance opportunities,
• awards youth and adult music scholarships,
• leads senior singalong parties in senior communities,
• gives free tickets to local nonprofits to increase access to live music experiences,
• hosts a monthly open mic for all ages and experience levels, and
• presents live music at community events that are free and open to the public.
