Founder and President, Bruce C. Bryan has been devoted to live music in downtown Roanoke for more than a decade.

In 2010, he started the Down By Downtown Music Festival, a 3 day celebration of music that spanned several venues and included dozens of performances by local, regional, and national acts. The yearly event inspired him to put the former Kirk Avenue Music Hall to use, and he worked with the board to open The Spot on Kirk in March of 2016.

He is also the owner of 5Points Creative, an award winning, full service marketing and advertising agency.
