N.C. Music Factory

Vice President Joe Biden campaigned in Charlotte Tuesday. More than 1,000 people turned out at the N.C. Music Factory to hear him speak.

West Charlotte High School’s band director got a call Monday asking if the band could play a gig on short notice.

The next day, band members were in full uniform, banging their drums and blowing their horns to entertain a long line of people waiting to see the vice president of the United States.

After the band played outside, Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx was the first speaker inside The Fillmore.
