Spartanburg CVB to Feature Local Musicians Past and Present

Spartanburg CVB to Feature Local Musicians Past and Present

The Spartanburg Convention and Visitors Bureau is working to overhaul its website. One of the features on the new site will be a “Spartanburg Jukebox”, which will pay tribute to local musicians past and present. The CVB is asking for mp3 files of local musicians’ work to feature on the site.



The Internet has revolutionized the way in which people make their travel plans. Research shows that eighty percent of consumers use the internet when making travel decisions, making it crucial that you have a site that is not only informative and easy to use, but also appealing to the visitor.



“Spartanburg has such a rich music heritage from Singin’ Billy Walker to Pink Anderson and Ira Tucker to The Marshall Tucker Band”, says Amy Phillips with the Spartanburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. “By featuring local artists on our website, visitors are not only able to learn about that part of our culture, but also able to enjoy some remarkable music”, she says.



If you know of a local musician, past or present, that you think should be featured on the “Spartanburg Jukebox”, please send the mp3 file, title and artist of each song to Amy Phillips, aphillips@visitspartanburg.com or mail to 298 Magnolia Street, Spartanburg, 29306. For any questions, please call 864-594-5050. All files will be needed by Friday, September 25th.



The mission of the Spartanburg Convention and Visitors Bureau is to promote and develop Spartanburg as a destination for all visitors.
