News 18 This Morning interview with Gary Wolfelt

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – If you never got the chance to see the Beatles, Elvis or Motown artists live, then see the next best thing at the Tippecanoe County Amphitheater this summer.

Concert promoter Gary Wolfelt is bringing three tribute acts to town. He said he hopes to attract both audiences that loved this music in their youth and younger crowds as well.

As for why he picked the Beatles, Elvis and Motown, he said they all hold a special significance to him.

“I actually learned to play the drums with the Beatles in my bedroom driving my father out of his mind, so I’ve always been hooked in pretty good with them. I’ve always loved Motown as well, and Elvis is kind of like America[n institution,]” said Wolfelt when he appeared on News 18 This Morning.
