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.
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.)
*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.
