    Location:  ChebaHut

    Meeting Begins:  7:30 PM

     In attendance:  Greg, Paige, JT, Jessica, Larry, Ellen, Jimmy C., Eric F., Ben Z., Megan B., Jenny M.

     

    President’s Report (Greg): “Oh…is it 7:30 yet—just turned.”

    2019 Elected Offices:

    The Nominations of the 2019 Officers were made.  The only Office needing a vote is MAYOR.  The two nominees are:  Eric Frommhold and Jennifer Minucci.

    (Online votes will be taken through 12/11 and the chosen 2019 Officers will be announced on 12/15 to be ready for the January 2019 meeting.)

     

    Our 2018 Holiday Party will be on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14th at The HideAway (3369 Thom Blvd.)  Doors will be at 7pm, with a show time around 8:30-9pm.  The venue’s ‘curfew’ is 12:30am.  FLUX will provide the entertainment.  There will be NO opener.  Food and drinks are available for purchase. There will be a 50/50 Raffle with half the monies going to a selected winner and the other portion going towards a local school’s music program:  Duane D. Keller MS.


    GOAL for 2019:  We want to start having 1 show/per month, since there seem to be less ‘jamband’ type shows at the Brooklyn Bowl.  We took 2018 ‘slow’ die to the Brooklyn Bowl’s addition to our scene. (*Brought up concern was to find a venue with the needed size—not too big, not too small.  The venue thoughts:  Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel, The HideAway, and the E-String.

    Thoguhts for future event:  A food truck and music, outdoor event at The HideAway or GarageMahal

     

    Vice President’s Report (JT):

    Trying to get our website more views, so have been adding additional local events.  Also, working on getting sponsors.  (Questions/Concerns brought up by advertising local medicinal dispensaries for our events. More details and list of possible sponsors TBD.  Please send us any thoughts on sponsorship.) 

     

    Treasurer’s Report (Paige):

    *Be sure to add your SMITH’S GROCERY card and your AMAZONSMILES account, to the ‘Jam Band Society of America’ non-profit help, to ensure a portion of your purchases comes back our way!  Tell your friends/family!

    *Discussion of whether or not to keep the www.area51soundtest.com domain was had. It’s up for renewal again ($18/year). Group decided to keep it keepin’ on….

    Secretary’s Report (Jessica): 

    *The recent Adopt-A-Highway poll, to decide a majority’s preference on a clean-up date/time was created.  Only 6 votes came though.

    Committee Heads’ Report (none present)

    PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg):

    Update:  Pink Talking Fish--The Hard Rock Live is no longer offering the ‘same’ contract with outside license/insurance policy concerns. Due to past HipHop/etc. events that the HRLive worked with, this has made for a $5million dollar insurance policy requirement. This would be a loss for LVJBS.  After discussion about lack of volunteers for a table, due to the ‘busy’ weekend of fun, we decided to simply enjoy the event the HR Live throws, for that weekend.

    *Andrew, at Vinyl (Hard Rock Hotel) will be looking at numbers and any policy changes for the smaller venue.  More info TBD.

    *Robert Walters (plays in Mike Gordon’s side band) is interested in late nights of November 1 or November 2. (Late nights, Thursday/Friday).  Message sent to inquire IF Mike Gordon would ‘possibly’ stop by venue.  More info TBD.

    *Contacted by Bill Laymon with EDGE OF THE WEST BAND, a New Riders of the Purple Sage/Supergroup.  They wanted to introduce their “amazing band/new project” to the LVJBS.

    *YakAttack (from Portland, OR) are interested in any aftershow bookings.

    *THE MOVES COLLECTIVE showed interest in an August date and have been discussing a possible collaboration with one of Jay Matt’s bands to join the event.  More details TBD.

    OPEN FLOOR:

    *Welcome STACIE HUMMEL, from Lone Woof Rescue.  She has recently purchased the property in Sandy Valley and has helped the LWR become more professional and organized, as Secretary of the non-profit.  She came to ‘thank’ the LVJBS for our support of LWR and share what progress has been done since her take-over. Stacie organizes the projects and manages the pop-up events and retail stores (featuring Dean Russo’s T-Shirts/items).  She works alongside our pal, JD, who deals with the dog-adoption side of the Rescue.  (Currently, there are 30 dogs needing adoption and 3 in Foster Care.  We discussed identifying a ‘new’ LVJBS sponsored dog.)  VOLUNTEERS:  Please contact Stacie@lonewoofrescue.org or (702)496-7885.
