Item 1: President’s Introduction (Johnnie) and Treasurer’s Report (Paige)
A. (Johnnie) Thank you to everyone who has been supporting our live shows! We appreciate being able to share live music experiences with all of you!
Thee Messarounds show: had 31 tickets sold, 14 were pre-sale for LVJBS members; no livestream for this show.
The Mega-Scopes show: Sold out event! 72 tickets were sold total including pre-sale tickets to LVJBS members; 25 livestreams were sold.

On Friday, April 16th Basia’s pool event with Todd Shaeffer, from Rail Road Earth, and Chris Thompson is @ 6:00 pm.
FLUX is playing Saturday, April 17th at The Space @ 8:00 pm.
B. By-Law Committee discussed. JT will send an email to LVJBS members to see who wants to join.
C. LA Jambands, Blues Society & Bluegrass Society are all amazing groups we can join forces with. We’d like to have Pitchfork and Moanin Blacksnakes play live with these societies. Jenny M. was approached by Blues Society about doing a show in the future.
D. The facility named Genesis may be opening its doors soon. This may be a good venue to host live music!
E. Scholarship fund money distribution discussed. Jessica G. can send it out to all of CCSD’s music departments to get the ball rolling.
Item 3: Vice President’s Report (Adam)
B. California will be opening up more soon. This may impact the reopening in Vegas soon. Especially for the possibility of booking bands from out of state (Ex: Delta Nove, Shaky Feeling).
C. Certain venues are starting to get “grants/money” to book shows that they know are guaranteed to bring in revenue, especially from other states, this may be to our advantage with continued reopening.
Item 4: Secretary’s Report (Tiffany)
A. Discussed the virtual tip jar/donation jar for LVJBS on the webcasts to help continue bringing live music events to Las Vegas. Possibility of bringing an in-person donation jar at our live events.
B. Going forward after feedback from Thee Mess Arounds, let’s involve the bands with more options with the webcast/live video/payment options. Some bands may prefer the live video over cash if ticket sales are low due to circumstances, especially if they tour a lot and want it for promotional purposes. This is a learning process for all of us and we are learning that different bands may have different needs.
C. Everyone who played at The Space in The Mess Arounds was impressed with the quality of sound and the venue!
D. Discussed possibility of an event such as a Water Gun/Water Balloon War held at Garage Majal or somewhere similar with a $5.00 donation to benefit LVJBS. People can bring kids and food, have fun in the sun, and raise money for live music events. Jessica G. said she spoke with owners of Garage Majal about this and they are looking forward to hosting events once Covid is more under control.

C. (Greg S.) Steely Dead, a Steely Dan/Grateful Dead band, reached out to him about playing a show in August. It sounds like an interesting gig and he will follow up!
D. (Johnnie T.) E-Strings Bar and Grill is a possible site for live music in the future.

Meeting Start: 7:03PM
Attendees: Johnnie T., Adam P., Paige T., Tiffany B., Jay M., Jessica G., Daniel R., Ian Z., Basia Y., Megan B.
Item 1: President’s Report (Johnnie)
A. Thank you for making the first even at The Space a success! Great feedback from people who attended in-person and from people who watched the stream. The event was sold out with all 48 tickets sold and 31 streams sold. Feedback from the streamers included: fantastic sound and camera quality, enjoyed multiple angles of band members, would like to see shots from the crowd in the future, if possible. Feedback from Ian Z., who also watched the stream: steam felt similar to platforms such as Twitch with being able to use reactions during the chat feature, nice to have the band respond to the streamers’ comments during show, the stream link was easy to access once purchased and very user-friendly.
B. Screenshots of the crowd for the next show at The Space can be possible if we get authorization from ticket buyers at time of purchase. Possible statement/clause included in purchase information.
Item 2: Vice President’s Report (Adam)
A. Feedback from Adam P. and The Space crew was that they really enjoyed our fans! We were respectful, had great energy, and showed them how we enjoyed our time at their place.
B. Possible dates to lock-in for future shows at The Space were discussed. Adam will double check with the team at The Space. (April 3rd, 16th, 17th) possible dates in March, as well.
A. The Space was paid for tickets bought by LVJBS members for the Catfish John event. Catfish John was paid, as well.
A. Safety truly was a priority at the Catfish John event. Temperature checks allowed people to feel safe and come out, including people who ventured out for their first indoor event since Covid started. This was the first music event for a number of people and it had a real “concert” feel to it that people were commenting about throughout the night. The lights, sound, and set-up of the venue made the night truly feel special! The added gift of the LVJBS guitar pick necklace that was welcoming each guest at their tables really stepped it up an extra notch. Props to Jessica and everyone who got those together! We came together and shared in the groove, shared laughs, goosebumps, and even tears together… This is just the beginning of many more to come!
A. Color: Turquoise
A. (Johnnie T.) Wild Apricot App is now available for members if we choose to stay with them. It features include using a QR code to show for paid concert tickets, members can pay dues, and access their account with ease. Decision will be made about keeping Wild Apricot as our platform by April.
B. (Johnnie T.) By Law Committee Meeting needs to be scheduled and assembled. Goal is to define roles, review by laws, term limits, new technology, etc. Those interested in discussing and/or joining the committee include: Daniel, Tiffany, Greg, Paige, Jessica, Johnnie. *Follow up: Tiffany will create a Google Form and post so those interested can let us know.
C. (Johnnie T.) Discussed bands to start thinking about for the next shows at The Space. (Thee Mess Arounds, Moanin Blacksnakes, The Mega Scopes, etc.) Discussed ticket price increasing from $20 to $25.
D. (Megan) Mega Scopes is interested in playing at The Space. She will follow up with the band and discuss our offer and a possible date of March 27th.
E. (Johnnie T.) He will follow up with Thee Mess Around and discuss our offer with them and a possible date in April.
F. (Basia) Chris Thompson of Coral Creek and Todd Scheaffer of Railroad Earth are interested in performing a private show. The date will be either April 18th or April 19th. She is thinking Sunday afternoon or Monday evening after everyone would be off work (6-8pm). Approximately 30-40 people to keep the gathering private and intimate. The performers want $2000 so we are thinking $30 per ticket to attend or more.
G. (Jay) Going forward let’s try to minimize how many events are created for our events to ensure social media cohesiveness. Too many events confuse fans and if one event created gets a lot of people marking interested/going and others don’t, it may sway people away from the event by thinking it doesn’t look interesting.
Meeting adjourned: 8:13 PM
