President’s Report & Production Report (Greg): “I guess we’ll get started!”
*As you can see, Brooklyn Bowl has a series of upcoming events which we will help advertise in exchange for comp tickets. JT has been on top of the ‘auto-generated’ raffle-lotteries.
*Even though we haven’t been promoting too many bands with our local venues taking care of that—the LVJBS is still doing what our mission states: Promoting Jam Band Music.
*EMINENCE ENSEMBLE is playing a FREE SHOW on Sunday, June 10th at the HARD ROCK LIVE. The band asked the LVJBS to help advertise and share their Facebook posts. Group supports this, yet reminded the band that SUNDAY shows are tough, especially when parking isn’t ‘free’ any longer.
*Fahreed Haque (from GarajMahal) has his new band, The Fahreed Haque Band. They are interested in Sunday, July 1st. They contacted us, due to the series of Southern California shows. We put him in contact with the OCJBS and the ShakeyFeelin’ band members. The options for local venues were either INDOORS at The Bunkhouse OR The HideAway. More info TBD.
