‘The Spot on Kirk’ in Roanoke looking to add more volunteers

The non-profit aims to give artists a place to perform

The nonprofit is focused on growing the Star City's live music scene

Roanoke, Va. – A local non-profit focused on growing Roanoke’s live music scene is looking for more volunteers.

‘The Spot on Kirk’ is a music venue on Kirk Avenue in Downtown Roanoke.

The non-profit aims to give artists a place to perform and audiences a chance to experience a variety of live entertainment.

Volunteers can help in a number of ways.

“It’s not hard work,” said Bruce Bryan, president of the Board of Directors for ‘The Spot on Kirk.’ “It’s welcoming people, showing them where the stage is, checking them in because most of the time the tickets are bought ahead of time. Sometimes people will pay cash at the door so it’s just making sure people get in and get comfortable and then you get to enjoy the show.”

Bryan said ‘The Spot on Kirk’ serves an important purpose.

“All of us could use a little heart movement, from that place where you’re like ‘Ugh,’ you just feel better and that’s why ‘The Spot on Kirk’ exists. It’s just like the Jefferson Center, the art museum, and all the other arts organizations. It’s got a role to play and we work really hard to play that role,” Bryan said.

Bryan said people can also support the non-profit by sharing information about upcoming events on social media and inviting family and friends to concerts.
