The Crossroads Blues Society is soliciting folks to work their festival on August 24. Shifts are three hours in length and run from 10 am to 1 pm, 1 pm to 4 pm, 4 pm to 7 pm and 7 pm to 10 pm. Everyone loves the first shift but we need people in every time slot. They have less positions in the first and last shifts because the crowd is small to start with and there are less demands from customers in the last one.
The following locations/tasks need volunteers:
• Blues Central
• Beer Sales
Stage Shifts are a little different:
• Shift One is setup and tear down first band and set up second band 11:15 to 12:00 and 1:15 to 2:00
• Shift Two is tear down second band, set up and tear down third band and set up fourth band 3:15 to 4:00 and 5:15 to 6:00
• Shift There is tear down fourth band and set up and tear down fifth band 7:15 to 8:00 and 9:15 to 10:00
Volunteers who work a shift get free admission and a regular festival tee shirt and water will be provided while you work and usually get some post-fest benefits, too. Whether it’s a special show or free food at one of our fall events, our volunteers get recognition not available to the public or our non-volunteering members. Please reply with your first and second choice for what you’d like to do and when you’d like to work. As noted, each shift has a limited number of slots. Thanks for support in the past as members and volunteers. We hope to have you work the 2019 event!
