    Las Vegas Jam Band Society

    Members’ Meeting Minutes

    June 6, 2017

     

    Meeting Begins:  7:50pm

    Location:  Tenaya Creek Brewery

     

    In attendance:  Greg, JT, Paige, Jessica, Kathy, Max, Megan, Ben, Anthony

     

    Called to order (Greg):  “Well, this will be a loud one….”  (Ahhh, thanks Megan, for the location spot upgrade!)

     

    President’s Report (Greg): 

    *Just announced GROOVESESSION, for July 21st at Vinyl, at the Hard Rock Hotel.  This show should be a later start to accommodate those attending ‘Hall & Oates’ at the T*Mobile.  Hoping to have a local band open the show.  (**Please contact the LVJBS is your band, or if you know of a band that would want to perform, prior to GrooveSession.)

     

    *Looking forward to the Fall, Tecopa Takeover.

     

    Vice President’s Report (Johnnie): 

    *In regards to the ‘future’ LVJBS Clubhouse:  Investors are currently being sought.  There’s an option off Dean Martin Dr., The Garden and, also, one off of Russell & Pecos (Group concern with that location not necessarily in the ‘middle of town’, so may not be a good choice.) 

    *Had a meeting with Leslie Ventura who is with the Review Journal newspaper.  She wants to do a ‘story’ on the LVJBS.  We will have to discuss this further.

     

    (Max chimed in with the SpeakEasy concept—if we want to continue the ‘Clubhouse’ location idea…..)

     

    Treasurer’s Report (Paige):

    *Membership cards are slowly getting out.  Jammin’on Main is offering 15% off with the sent email and the membership card.  We did hear back from PTs Pubs and they are inquiring more details and numbers before agreeing to any discount options--too much of a hassle, so we won’t support them, as a group.  Also, Mike (a Mechanic friend of LVJBS) is offering a 15% off of mechanic-work on members’ vehicles.

     

    *Collecting donations for JD’s LoneWoof Rescue (blankets/dog food bags).  Thinking of ‘changing’ our LVJBS sponsored dog, Angus, to another dog.  (Angus is having trouble getting adopted—had a few adoptions/returns, so He may just become one of JD’s personal pets.)  More info TBD.

     

    Secretary’s Report (Jessica):

    *Nothing new to report—Yet, thanks to Paige for covering next month’s meeting (Officers/Committee Heads) at Rocky’s.  This will be on July 11th, due to the 4th of July, the week prior. 

     

    Mayor’s Report (Kathy in for Justin):

    Color:  RED, RED, WINE

     

    Friends & Family Events:

    *Thanks, Greg, for the fun MAY event (51s game).  JUNE’s event was a mention of possibly going to the downtown, Container Park, DOME theater.  (Great sound, seats 25, all-ages.)  Greg to send email to group, asking for volunteers to ‘create the June event’, allowing others to take part.  More details TBD.

     

    COMMITTEE REPORTS

     

    Fundraising Report (Kathy & JT):

    *Spoke with Nezi & Cal about a ‘central’ room for bands to play (eg. ‘Gear & Clothing’ store--Charleston near Main)….They are ‘more than happy’ to work with us (sharing social media, fliers, etc.). 

    *Spoke with ‘Grateful Don’, who, too, shares similar interests, with his silver-jewelry sales.

     

    Membership Report (Paige):

    *Let’s get these cards out….If you see members who might not have their card yet, please help to distribute!

    *Needing to get more ‘basic’ LVJBS info cards (Jenny M. may have the unused ones….more info TBD.)

     

    PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg):

    *Contacted once more by Craig, from Cubensis.  Still interested in an October 13/14 date.  Max to inquire about a possible Brooklyn Bowl date, yet October is always booked/busy.  No confirmation can be given until early September.  (Max to have Nathan, @ SandDollar, make contact with Craig for a possible gig there.)

     

    OPEN FLOOR:

    *GREENSKY BLUEGRASS was booked at the HENDERSON PAVILION, on Friday, Sept. 15th.  (Kathy may advertise this as a possible September ‘Friends & Family’ event….blankets, coolers, all-ages.) 

    The opener is still being determined.  The ‘AllTogethers’ have inquired.

     

    *The Funk Jam is dealing with a TOP GOLF neighborhood ‘noise ordinance’, so may start earlier.  More info TBA.

     

    *Thanks to the LVJBS for the non-profit letter, which helped for ‘free’ beer for the Takeover event.  Also, bands are being ‘booked’ for the upcoming Tacopa Takeover. Suggestion: Shakey Feelin’

     

    *Max offering to get LVJBS advertisements out during his upcoming Boulder, CO trip. 

    --Be on the lookout for late-night WSP show announcements.

     In attendance:  Greg, John, Paige, Jessica, Dan, (Visit by Intern Robin)

     Called to order (Greg):

    “Let’s get this show on the road….”

    President’s Report (Greg):

    A concern about the LVJBS’s needed role, in exchange for the Brooklyn Bowl ‘comp’ tickets for our ‘member raffle’ is had.  Due to a past busy, few months, the will-call list has been late to the Brooklyn Bowl and not enough of our ‘promised’ advertising has been done.  (Greg, apologetically, admitted the negligence and will ensure this doesn’t happen again/ruin our ‘relationship’ with the Brooklyn Bowl team.)

    We will be selective in our ‘requests’ to the Brooklyn Bowl, ensuring they are ‘jamband’ genres, only, to avoid any ‘overkill’.

    (Upcoming shows that we will ‘NOT’ request this time around:  Gary Clark Jr. (blues genre), Pink Talking Fish (due to it being an inexpensive late night show).

     

    Vice President’s Report (Johnnie): 

    *We want to ensure our LVJBS Membership cards have ‘value’, as well as being an ‘ID’ for membership. (The LVJBS is a code for ‘LIFT’ where a portion of any Lyft-ride, goes back to the LVJBS.  Some new sought after discounts:  Jammin’ on Main (10% off), PTs Pub (various LV locations).  Details TBA.

    (JT to send email to members, asking of any leads for area businesses to provide discounts, deals, etc.)

    Treasurer’s Report (Paige):

    *No Panera Bread contact back regarding portion of funds back to the LVJBS.

    *The filing of our Non-Profit status was submitted on March 31st (due by April 18th) to the NV Secretary of State.

    *Call from Megan R. (Garage Mahal Takeover), asking for a copy of our non-profit status to help get donation to the event, from area sponsors.  Group will support this event.

    Secretary’s Report (Jessica): 

    *Checked with ‘Rocky’s Bar & Grill’, for a complimentary website ad-advertisement and/or discount, since we enjoy their establishment for our meetings/get- togethers.  The owner is fine with advertisement, but needs more information submitted to him before any discounts are offered.  More info TBD.

    *’GLOW STICK WILLY (from Indiana) will be in the area on 4/16 & 4/17 and would like to play an event.  They are willing to play for ‘free’, so we put them in touch with the Bischels, to possibly have them play on Easter Sunday, 4/16, “A Resurrection-Metal show” is a possibility.  More details on the Takeover-event.

    Greg, John, Paige, Jessica, Dan, Ian, Kathy

     

    Called to order &

    President’s Report (Greg): We’re on track for 2017!

     

    Vice President’s Report (Johnnie): 

    *Ticket lotteries have been going well.  The RELIX people have contacted us again for a ‘table’ for the three-nights of WEEN, Feb. 17-19.  (An email will soon go out, looking for volunteers.)

    Mayor’s Report (Justin): ~absent~

    …via former Officer, Ian Z.

    COLOR:  “Fatty Purple, Yellow, & Green”

     

    Committee Reports:

    Membership Committee (JT):  As of now, 59 paid members for 2017.

     Archive Committee (Kathy):  *Advanced notice is needed to help gather the needs T-shirts/posters, etc. for table set-up. 

    *The 50/50 table drawings will help ‘rid’ the extra posters, T-shirts, calendars that are had at a reasonable price.

     *More LVJBS cards with the basic info/email/website address are needed.  This will help for ‘easier’ advertisement during events or set-ups like the RELIX table.

     

    PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg):

    *High Times Magazine will have an event on March 4 & 5 @ Moapa Tribal Plaza for anyone age 21 & over.  They have offered a handful of tickets for our ‘word of mouth’/texted advertisement.  We will support this, but want to keep it ‘professional’ due to the event topic itself.

    *The Go’Arounds, who are “bits of favorite bands exploded into Rock & Roll confetti”, from Michigan, are interested in Wed., 3/29.  Due to the lack of ‘knowledge’ about this band and the ‘many’ March events around town, a weeknight event isn’t recommended, so we will have to ‘pass’ on ‘The Go’Arounds this time ‘around….

    *SHAKY FEELIN’ are interested in a weeknight show.  They gave some dates.  We know a large portion of our members enjoy this band, but are trying to inform the band that ‘weeknight’ shows are not always successful.  The only two ‘smaller’ venues that ‘could’ host them are the Bunkhouse or the HideAway.  (Kathy to inquire if those two locations would allow us to charge a small cover/work the door OR if the location will take care of the band’s needs.)  (We will mention a possible April 1st, late night, after the Brooklyn Bowl’s STS9 show, to help celebrate member, RJ’s Birthday!)  More details TBD.

    *Eminence Ensemble & JellyBread were both interested in a late night, May 27th, after Dead & Co. show.  (The Brooklyn Bowl already ‘beat them to it’, with the scheduled PINK TALKING FISH.)

    *Had contact with ‘Hunter & the Dirty Jacks’ member, Jon Siembieda.  He is looking into a future LVJBS collaboration.

    *Had contact by Little Tybee & Chon who are coming down the west coast, over the summer months.  The dates that ‘could’ work for us conflicts with the ‘member popular’ HIGH SIERRA MUSIC FESTIVAL dates, so we could possibly catch them ‘next time around.’

     

    Upcoming Brooklyn Bowl shows:

    2/14:  Galactic

    2/17-2/19:  Ween

    2/20:  Infamous Stringdusters

    2/27:  Grateful Ball

    2/28: Railroad Earth

    3/4:  Gov’t Mule

    3/17:  Umphrey’s McGee

    3/23:  Donavan Frankenrieter

    3/28:  Robert Randolph

    3/31 & 4/1:  STS9

     

    OPEN FLOOR:

    *Discussion of the definition of ‘LVJBS Charter Members, Board of Directors, and the needed ‘current on dues’ were had.  A detailed list of requirements and the opportunity to ‘make due’ on any delinquent dues will be provided soon. 

    *(Paige to get the updated spreadsheet of member info (name/addresses/phone/email) to the Officers.)

    *Mark your calendars for an upcoming ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY clean-up, SUNDAY, March 19th @ 9am.

    It’s quick & easy with more people!  The weather should be nice and it is a location with a ‘easy to get to’ drive and doesn’t take long!  (Grabber tools, safety vests, and the collection bags are provided!)  BRING YOUR FRIENDS!!!!  J

     

    Friends & Family Event:

    *FEBRUARY’s event will be  ‘Panera Café’ event (part of the proceeds go back to our non-profit.)  Paige will send more details/Facebook invite for families to go at their convenience on the chosen day.

    (**Also, Greg will choose a Tuesday, for a Drive-In movie (2for1) event. This will “happen on a Tuesday and the date will be known and shared soon!”)

     *MARCH’s event will be a Bowling night, planned by Kathy.  Location TBA and the possible dates would be Saturday the 11th or 25th.

    Email-chatted with the new “media marketing” person for the Brooklyn Bowl about the LVJBS’s volunteer/advertising help for member-ticket raffle-exchange, letting him know about our ‘deal’ and help with tickets and helping RELIX with their tables for the larger events.  Welcome, Chris B.! 

     

    Will make contact with the House of Blues for their upcoming Dark Star Orchestra (DSO) show on 2/21 and our needed help.

     

    Goal for 2017:  To have a September ‘Golf Tournament’ with musicians, members, etc.  More  details to follow.

     

    Vice President’s Report (Johnnie): 

    This meeting begins the $5 credit that is given for meeting attendance. (Goes towards the following year’s dues.)  The next meeting, in February, will be for the Board of Directors/Offices/former Officers.  This next meeting, in MARCH, will be one for all members and guests.  (Officers will be given a $10 credit for the ‘Officers’ meetings’ attendance.) 

     

    Goal for 2017:  To focus more on Fundraising and outside donations.  This will help our ‘big picture’ goal of an LVJBS Clubhouse (for our meetings/small gigs, training, music help, etc.)

     

    The 2017 calendars were printed.  They are FREE for dues paid members or $10 to purchase.  (They look great!  Thanks to JT and Paige for their hard work in making it happen.)  The Wild Apricot site has had some updates which will help navigate the site a bit easier.

     

    Treasurer’s Report (Paige):

    We’ve had some members (new and former) pay their 2017 already.  The membership cards have been ordered and the goal is to have them in hand by month’s end.  We will have to gather the list of local businesses for available discounts.  We still have the Amazonsmiles & Smiths grocery ‘give backs’. 

     

    (Suggestion from guest, Tom:  The downtown, new grocery store has a lot adjacent to it….Maybe a future outdoor parking lot gig, with certain store hours (i.e. 2pm-5pm) giving some ‘proceeds back to LVJBS’ when you shop inside….)  Great idea, Tom! J

     

    Secretary’s Report (Jessica): 

    The Adopt-A-Highway will happen at the end of Janaury, Sunday, the 29th.  It only takes a couple of hours (less if more people!), so come check it out!  A FaceBook invite will soon be made.  Mark your calendars! J

     

    Goal for 2017:  To make Facebook invites for the future meetings, so those ‘interested’ or ‘attending’ can help spread the word and the meetings are better advertised.

    Members’ Meeting Minutes

    December 6, 2016

     

    Meeting Begins: 7:32PM @ Tenaya Creek Brewery

     

    Called to order (John): “Well, here’s to next year!”

     

    Vice President’s Report (John):

    *The calendar for 2017 turned out great!  They will sell for $10/ea. (*complimentary for a 2017 (6 mo. or 1 yr.) LVJBS membership!)

     

    Membership discussion:  After reviewing the Bi-Laws, it states that ‘monthly, an Officers’ meeting is required and EVERY QUARTER, should be a ‘Members’ Meeting’.  Group decides this will be a bi-law to stick to for 2017 due to the ‘majority’ of the people in attendance, each month, are ‘Officers’ anyways and with only 4 meetings per year, we may get better non-officer attendance.  The Bi-Laws also mention ‘officers getting ‘credits of $10 (non-officers/members get $5 credit) when meetings are attended—these monies can be used towards future membership dues.  (We will hold our first 2017 Officers’ meeting after the January Members’ meeting on Tuesday, January 3rd.)

     

    *The Holiday LVJBS Party is at THE HIDEAWAY, 3369 Thom Blvd. (LV, NV 89130) for Saturday, Dec. 17thMike Mangan’s Organ Trio & Friends, with Jellybread are confirmed for the music. 2 sets, per band, with a jam at night’s end.  We will have a ‘gift exchange’ (number pull) and 50/50 Raffle.  No cover, just a suggested donation.

    *The RAFFLE (50/50) for our Holiday party was decided to go towards supporting an LVJBS member/group, rather than supporting outside of the Society.  Paige and John have the roll of tickets to use for the party’s 50/50 (half to the winner and the other half back to the LVJBS for a 2017 donation.)

    *The HOLIDAY GIFT-GRAB will take place for those bringing a $15 valued gift, get a numbered ticket as they drop off WRAPPED gift to the table.  Numbers will be randomly drawn for an order of ‘grabbing’ any gift off the table to keep. 

     

    *NOMINATIONS for 2017 LVJBS Officers were made.  Contact was made to those Offices, with multiple nominees.  The only Officers who accepted/responded to their nomination were the 2016 incumbents, so the same Officers will hold each 2017 Office once more.

     

    Treasurer’s Report (Paige): “Looking forward to 2017!

    *The new memberships will get a 2017 calendar and the membership cards will given shortly after.  We can utilize the previous year’s artwork if no one responds to our request for 2017 artwork. More info TBD.

     

    *Any help for the Holiday party set-up, please get to The Hideaway prior to the 6pm, doors.

     

    Secretary’s Report (Jessica): 

    *Tecopa Hot Springs was a successful ‘Friends & Family’ event.  Thanks to Megan and Dave for their hard work. 

     

    *The Adopt-A-Highway will happen at the end of Janaury, Sunday, the 29th.  It only takes a couple of hours (less if more people!), so come check it out!

     

    *I will continue to post Facebook messages for the meeting reminders, as needed.

    …via Jessica….

    COLOR:  ‘Jingle Bell Silver’

     

    Committee Reports:

    Membership Committee (JT): Membership cards should be ready!

     

    Archive Committee (Kathy):  The yellow bin with the LVJBS archive/posters/T-shirts, etc. was brought to the meeting, but due to a ‘busy’ Tenaya Creek, we’d rather look through it later.  (It was suggested that the Officers enjoy a night of beverages/snacks in January or February at Jessica’s home, to have time to reminisce and organize the tub.  More details/date TBD.)

     

    PRODUCTION REPORT (sent after meeting) (Greg):

    (sent after meeting) “Glad we made it through this tragic stricken 2016 without any major incidents other than maybe one or two with some String Cheese!” :) Looks like we are status quo for Officers for 2017. Would like to keep this ball rolling in the same direction we have it going. This is the year I would like to expand into our other US markets that are desiring having a jam Band Society. Want to see other chapters start to form. That is where I'm going to concentrate my efforts...and I also am looking to host a golf tournament with jam bands as our theme. Stay tuned...

          4. Tanner Bardin here from Eminence Ensemble. Message: Hope all is well since the last time we have spoke. I am looking to see if you guys have any interest in hosting and Dead & Co. after parties in Vegas this year on 5/27.   On the side of Eminence Ensemble I have started an agency that represents several bands of all genres. My immediate thought for the after show would be Eminence Ensemble and a band I represent called The Tenth Mountain Division at the Hard Rocks live after Dead and CO Finish. Tenth Mountain can start early for those who didn't get dead tickets and then finish slightly after the band ends followed by 2 sets of Eminence Ensemble. Let me know if this is possible our west coast numbers are up, we are now signed to a full bigger agency however I wanted to reach out and submit for this After Party. Let me know and hope all is well.

    7. Good morning, my name is Jerimiah and I am the drummer and manager for the Denver based improvisational rock jam band THE WILD. We are currently seeking opportunities to play out of state shows to get the chance to play to all new faces and promote ourselves in other states. We were fortunate enough to play our first show with The Higgs here in Denver in May and saw they played a show in Vegas through your society last night. That is how I found your page and was hoping we could bring some Colorado rock to Vegas. We currently have shows lined up for almost every weekend for the next month and are working very hard to promote ourselves and get our name out as much as possible. We would love to get the chance to work with the Las Vegas Jam Band Society to play out in there and would work very hard to make it the best possible show. Hope to speak with you soon and thank you for your time. Thanks,  Jerimiah

    8. FROM FB MESSENGER:

    Hi looking for any recommendations for our West Coast 2017 spring tour.

    9. FROM FB MESSENGER: Aloha LVJBS. I hope you are great. We are musically starved out here in Hawaii most of the time. Is there someone in your organization that might be willing to rap with me about how your organization works and how you set it up. We are trying to figure out something to quench our thirst for some mainland based bands. I used to promote shows here about 10 years ago but need to make real money to survive. Any help is appreciated. Mahalo. John@OBhomes.com[ (Called him yesterday and went to vm)

    *We were lucky and thankful to get an email from Christy (known via the Brooklyn Bowl), the day before the Phish shows.  There were a section of available tickets for each night of the MGM shows. To avoid chaotic hassle of finding out who needed tickets, Greg allotted a handful of tickets to a few Officers to upgrade their seat, or to give away to members and friends of LVJBS to enjoy!  On behalf of the LVJBS, thanks so much for thinking of us!!!

    Vice President’s Report (John):  Looking forward to the Tecopa Weekend.  The RELIX table volunteers for the Halloween Brooklyn Bowl shows did a great job.  Thanks to the Tolsons, new LVJBS fan, Justin, Jenny M, & Justin G. for their help!  J
