**Enhanced Pass: As always, keep in mind that all volunteers will receive a pass that can be used for rush seats. This year, we have enhanced this program to include limited guaranteed spaces for our volunteers at all venues/series [excluding Frankie’s Jazz Club] to increase your chance of admittance to more shows! (This includes big Marquee events!) The reserved spots are guaranteed; however, they will be limited and will go on a First Come First Served basis.**
