Tyler Godsey, founder of 5 Points Music Sanctuary, Roanoke’s newest live concert venue, has spent much of his life chasing the highs of live music. That he is considered legally deaf never stopped him from seeking what he describes as, “those magical moments when an energy blows through the crowd and everyone is united in love by the music.” As an expectant father, that passion for music was something he looked forward to sharing with his children.
“When my wife told me she was pregnant with my first son I started compiling a playlist of songs that someone who comes into this world should hear, Godsey shared in a recent interview. “When my son was born, I was on cloud nine, and was playing the list I made for him. I didn’t realize he wasn’t hearing any of it.”
