Mayor’s Report (Eric F.) absent, Color via text: KNIGHT-TIME GOLD
Committee Heads’ Report (none present)
PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg):
Update: Pink Talking Fish--The Hard Rock Live is no longer offering the ‘same’ contract with outside license/insurance policy concerns. Due to past HipHop/etc. events that the HRLive worked with, this has made for a $5million dollar insurance policy requirement. This would be a loss for LVJBS. After discussion about lack of volunteers for a table, due to the ‘busy’ weekend of fun, we decided to simply enjoy the event the HR Live throws, for that weekend.
*Andrew, at Vinyl (Hard Rock Hotel) will be looking at numbers and any policy changes for the smaller venue. More info TBD.
*Robert Walters (plays in Mike Gordon’s side band) is interested in late nights of November 1 or November 2. (Late nights, Thursday/Friday). Message sent to inquire IF Mike Gordon would ‘possibly’ stop by venue. More info TBD.
*Contacted by Bill Laymon with EDGE OF THE WEST BAND, a New Riders of the Purple Sage/Supergroup. They wanted to introduce their “amazing band/new project” to the LVJBS.
*YakAttack (from Portland, OR) are interested in any aftershow bookings.
*THE MOVES COLLECTIVE showed interest in an August date and have been discussing a possible collaboration with one of Jay Matt’s bands to join the event. More details TBD.
*Welcome STACIE HUMMEL, from Lone Woof Rescue. She has recently purchased the property in Sandy Valley and has helped the LWR become more professional and organized, as Secretary of the non-profit. She came to ‘thank’ the LVJBS for our support of LWR and share what progress has been done since her take-over. Stacie organizes the projects and manages the pop-up events and retail stores (featuring Dean Russo’s T-Shirts/items). She works alongside our pal, JD, who deals with the dog-adoption side of the Rescue. (Currently, there are 30 dogs needing adoption and 3 in Foster Care. We discussed identifying a ‘new’ LVJBS sponsored dog.) VOLUNTEERS: Please contact Stacie@lonewoofrescue.org or (702)496-7885.
