Members’ Meeting Minutes

November 8, 2016

Meeting Begins: 7:40PM @ Rocky’s

President’s Report (Greg): “On this ‘eventful’ Election Day, …wahn wahn wahn”

*Our LVJBS Officer Election process usually begins in October.  We kept with the ‘LVJBS-fashion’ of having some delay….  The nominations for the 2017 Officers will begin, soon, online and go through the Friday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 25th.  Please check out our Social Media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Wild Apricot) for the nomination process.  The December meeting will have the Officer Elections. 

*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

Secretary’s Report (Jessica):  

*Welcome to a new Las Vegan & LVJBS supporter, Regina,—from Seattle, WA.  

*Ready for the Tecopa fun.  I will be getting the LVJBS donated basket together for the Tecopa Raffle fundraiser!  It will have a few LVJBS T-shirts and a voucher for an upcoming LVJBS event (up to a $50 value w/ some exclusions)

Treasurer’s Report (Paige):

We made $11.74 from our ‘give back’ program with the Smith’s Rewards Card. We have cut a check to support the Tecopa Takeover 4, as discussed.  Our poster collection donation will be taken care of around the Holidays.   

Mayor’s Report (Justin): ~absent~

…via Greg & Paige….

COLOR:  ‘Cubby Blue’

Committee Reports:

Membership Committee (JT):    We’ve been looking into raising funds for a ClubHouse for the LVJBS. This would be a place to host our meetings and be a place to provide training for music entrepreneurs/music lessons, etc.  We want to show the ways we can be a help to the community of musicians and music fans. Our online donation page has raised $750 so far.


Archive Committee (Kathy):  The yellow bin with the LVJBS archive/posters/T-shirts, etc. has now been moved to new storage.  An extra key will be given to another Officer in case something needs to be retrieved, etc.


*We have confirmed our plan for the Holiday LVJBS Party.  Confirmed location is THE HIDEAWAY, for Saturday, Dec. 17thMike Mangan’s Organ Trio & Friends, with Jellybread are confirmed for the music.  We will have a ‘gift exchange’ (number pull) for the festivities and find out about any pot luck/dessert bar allowance.  More details TBA

*John Perry Barlow (Grateful Dead songwriter) is going through some tough medical battles and we are hoping to have an event with David Nelson to help raise some proceeds to help ‘Send January 2017 into Good Health’.  More details TBD.

*The Able Baker Brewery event at the Hard Rock Café, over Halloween weekend went well. Manos was grateful to the LVJBS for the support.

*The Hard Rock Café, Paradise location was recently purchased from the Hard Rock Hotel, for their after the New Year expansion & will be CLOSING on 12/31/16.  We looked into having Particle (who helped celebrate its opening) into performing for their ‘closing’.  Particle already had a deal in New York City, so had to decline.  We are looking into having ‘Moksha’ to close out the Hard Rock Café’s memories.  More details TBA.

*MELVIN SEALS & the TERRAPIN FLYER @ Top Golf LV, on Saturday, Nov. 19th

*RAILROAD EARTH was booked for the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Tues., Feb. 28th.


*Max, on behalf of Top Golf, is working with the LVJBS on a possible ‘sponsor fee’ where the LVJBS can get donations, per show, for helping to advertise their events. This is something we may look into instead of ‘sending the donation hat around’ at these events.

*Our website domain is once again up for renewal.  Group decided to renew for another 2 year renewal.

Adopt-A-Highway’s next clean-up date will be in January. Two date options will be given to members to decide which morning would work better for more attendance:  Sunday, Jan. 8th or Sunday, Jan. 29th.  More details TBD.
