Beatles Tribute Brings Record Crowd to Daniel Recital Hall
Converse College’s new Music Business Program honored the legendary and groundbreaking music of the Beatles as part of their practicum. Acclaimed singer-songwriter Jim Avett headlined the show,
accompanied by more than a dozen local performers including Rescue Party, Jukebox 45, Sugar Black Rose, Rob Seel & Lesley Diane, and Buck Shoals.
Professor John Jeter, head of the Music Business program, told the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, “The students have done a phenomenal job. I threw the idea out at them, and they picked up the ball and ran with it. They’re the ones who are making it happen.”
