LAS VEGAS JAM BAND SOCIETY
Members’ Meeting Minutes
April 4, 2017
Meeting Begins: 7:38PM @ Rocky’s Bar & Grill
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.
Mayor’s Report (Justin): ~absent~
…via visiting ‘substitute’ Mayor, Ms. Robin
PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg):
*L.A. based band, JAMERICANA (www.thealpinegroup.com) has been contacting for an upcoming event. We will keep them on our ‘radar’ for a future show.
*’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.
