Black Fret is a volunteer-run organization. We are a group of people who are extremely passionate about our city and our local music. Everyone here knows the sacrifices it takes to commit time, energy and intensity to our cause. It’s that passion that has driven our continuous growth and success. We are proud of what we have accomplished together.
If you are one of Austin’s passionate music fans, have a give muscle that needs exercising, or just want to be a part of one of the world’s best teams dedicated to supporting local music, please fill out the form below and let us know about you.
We are looking for driven and dedicated volunteers, reliable self-starters, to help our events run smoothly and safely, while having a great time at some of the coolest listening sessions ever. The music, the people, and the overall energy of the community make it a really special experience.
Event Hospitality Volunteers
We hold ourselves to exceptionally high standards for Black Fret events, delivering premium guest experiences in a wide variety of interesting locations.
The vast majority of our performances occur every other Saturday night. Volunteers must be available from 5-11pm. We ask that you commit to one event per month or so, though you can certainly sign up for more!
You’ll need to be on time, presentable, and able to complete assigned work with intelligence, integrity, self-direction, and an awareness of risks to your own safety and that of others. You must be eager to lend a hand and self-motivated to ensure things stay clean, safe, and welcoming. Events almost always include alcoholic beverages for guests and we do not allow Volunteers to consume alcohol during the events.
All event hospitality roles require you to be in good health, physically fit, and able to provide your own transportation to and from events around the city. You must have a cellular and wi-fi-capable mobile phone. We do NOT provide workers compensation, auto, health, disability, injury, life or other insurance or benefits to our volunteers.
If the Black Fret vision and mission are something you’d like to help move forward in the world, we look forward to hearing from you!
