Work Concerts at Veterans United Amphitheater AND Pay Your Dues!

Updated: May 30

You may have heard rumblings around of how you can work a concerts to help offset the cost of dues. Here is the low-down.


Great Bridge Crew works with Legends, the hospitality organization at Veterans United Home Loan Amphitheater. Parents and family members directly related to our rowers volunteer to work the beer tents at concerts, and Legends directly pays GBC a certain amount per person, per show, plus all the tips you can score. GBC puts 10% of the total take for the night towards our scholarship fund and the rest along with the tip money gets divided up between the people who worked that night.




In order to work a concert, you must take a class through Legends to obtain a certification which is good for 3 years. Classes are offered multiple dates throughout the season, so if you are interested in getting certified please get in touch with the concert organizer or the Member at Large.


The Clubs Concert Organizer will send you out a time to check into the event. Please make sure you are on time for check in. When you get to the Amphitheater, if you are looking at the stage, the back gate is to the far right all the way back. You enter through the back gate (back by the VIP parking).


Once you walk through the gate, there is a check in table. Show your ID and sign the GBC sign in sheet. You will get an ID Badge and a T shirt that you return at the end of the night. Black hats at table for purchase $5.00 (no cash), Legends will keep track on your sign in sheets.


We typically have 2/3 beer stands we work at. Each stand has a "cashier" who is responsible for picking up the handheld credit card machines, the chargers, and battery packs. The cashier will report to the money counting area in the back of the lakeside kitchen area. The cashier will leave their ID for the evening and will pick it up when they return their stands items back to the money counting area.


GBC has two coveted beer stands on the top of the hill. Each stand has 4/5 people working it, and once the doors open, you are slinging beers to the masses! There is NO CASH at the venue, so when you are asking people to accept the charge, don't forget to tell them that if they would like to leave a tip, it goes to a high school rowing team!!! (It's for the kids!)


At the end of the night return your shirts to the Lakeside Main Kitchen area (there is a laundry bin there and your lanyards back in money counting area. If you don't know where it is, ask one of your fellow GBC parents or any volunteer walking around.


Money from the concert is sent to the club and the Treasurer will have the list of people who worked the concert and the money will be put into your rower's dues account. If you have a question about the money you earned or your rower account, send an email to treasurer@greatbridgecrew.org.
