Help the staff at Spotlight!

As most of you already know. One of the North Shores preeminent music venues closed its doors with absolutely no notice yesterday. The staff at Spotlight Tavern were the life blood that kept the music going. Sadly, they are now without jobs and as responsible adults have bills to pay while they search for something new. I have set this page up to try and help them have just a little less anxiety. 

So, If you have ever enjoyed a warm night on the deck, the company of amazing friend and staff, or if your band got the opportunity to rock the stage, please donate anything you can. Even a dollar helps. PLEASE SHARE THIS ON ALL OF YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA! Lets get the word out and rally around the people who worked so hard and were screwed so brutally!
