MAY 2022 LVJBS Meeting Minutes 

Date: May 3, 2022 

Meeting Start: 7:00PM

Location: 595 Craft Kitchen 

Attendees: Johnnie T, Adam P., Paige T., Jessica G., Basia Y., Stephen Y., Bruce P., Dave Tatlock

Item 1: President’s Report (Johnnie):

*The ‘Second Sunday’ Saddle N’ Spurs event for May will be Sunday, May 8th (Mother’s Day) with TheeMessArounds (7-11 PM)  (Please help to advertise!  Tell you friends!)

*Thanks to Basia & Bruce for volunteering for the RELIX table at the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas at the recent Billy String’s show. 

*Awaiting to hear back from ‘Tasha’ at the Rockstar Bar (venue @ LV Golf Center). They have live music on Fridays & Saturdays.  We will stop in one weekend to check-in with Tasha, in person, since we keep missing her.  More details TBD.

*We checked out the stage area at ROSIE’S SALOON (off I-11, just past the AZ border) after the recent Adopt-A-Highway event.  It’s about 45 min. from Las Vegas, so a rental shuttle or designated carpooling would be best.  They are looking for weekend events, 4 bands in 2 days (AM band and PM band, each day).  Thoughts:  PITCHFORK one of those days with brunch.

*Will be drafting letters to various Sponsors.  Drafts will be sent to Jessica for proofreading.

*We reached out to GOOGLE in regards to their $15k grants.  We will hold a meeting with them soon.  More details TBD.

*Still awaiting a meeting with Mark Shunock in regards to the 15-10 grants.  More details TBA.
