How Can I Help?

Friends of Bob is an organization of volunteers. Everything that gets done is done by people who are willing to help the cause of bringing interesting live music to Lafayette. Some people help out once in a while; some people have tasks for which they are regularly responsible.

Become a member.
If you can't donate your time, please, at least, become a member by sending dues of $10 or more to:

Please note that any donation above the $10 dues is tax deductible since Friends of Bob is registered with the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt not-for-profit organization.
Occasionally our shows lose money and our membership dues keep the organization afloat. Dues also pay the expenses involved with printing posters and e-mailing newsletters.

 

Sign-up for a job.
Here are some jobs that you could sign-up to do once in a while:
  • work a shift on the door at shows
  • put up posters
  • do some minimal clean up after a show
  • cook a dish for the musicians
  • load-in or load-out equipment.

 

Come to our shows and encourage your friends to do the same!
You may not have heard of the musicians we bring to town, but we really do a thorough job of quality control, so it's unlikely you'll be disappointed. We put a lot of effort into creating the trust that if Friends of Bob is bringing music to town it will be worth seeing. And, word-of-mouth recommendations are how many of our members first heard about our shows.

 

Share your newsletter with friends and colleagues.
We send an e-mail newsletter to folks who have given us their e-mail address. Sign up fo the e-mail newsletter if you have not already done so.

 

Come to our meetings.
A few days before each show we have an organizational meeting. If you'd like to be more involved in the organization, come to a meeting. These are low-key events. We do have minutes, an agenda, and a semblance of formal meeting etiquette, but we hold them at the Lafayette Brewing Company so it's also a social evening out.
