Meeting Begins: 7:30 PM
In attendance: Greg, Paige, JT, Jessica, Larry, Ellen, Jimmy C., Eric F., Ben Z., Megan B., Jenny M.
President’s Report (Greg): “Oh…is it 7:30 yet—just turned.”
2019 Elected Offices:
The Nominations of the 2019 Officers were made. The only Office needing a vote is MAYOR. The two nominees are: Eric Frommhold and Jennifer Minucci.
(Online votes will be taken through 12/11 and the chosen 2019 Officers will be announced on 12/15 to be ready for the January 2019 meeting.)
Our 2018 Holiday Party will be on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14th at The HideAway (3369 Thom Blvd.) Doors will be at 7pm, with a show time around 8:30-9pm. The venue’s ‘curfew’ is 12:30am. FLUX will provide the entertainment. There will be NO opener. Food and drinks are available for purchase. There will be a 50/50 Raffle with half the monies going to a selected winner and the other portion going towards a local school’s music program: Duane D. Keller MS.
GOAL for 2019: We want to start having 1 show/per month, since there seem to be less ‘jamband’ type shows at the Brooklyn Bowl. We took 2018 ‘slow’ die to the Brooklyn Bowl’s addition to our scene. (*Brought up concern was to find a venue with the needed size—not too big, not too small. The venue thoughts: Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel, The HideAway, and the E-String.
Thoguhts for future event: A food truck and music, outdoor event at The HideAway or GarageMahal
Vice President’s Report (JT):
Trying to get our website more views, so have been adding additional local events. Also, working on getting sponsors. (Questions/Concerns brought up by advertising local medicinal dispensaries for our events. More details and list of possible sponsors TBD. Please send us any thoughts on sponsorship.)
Treasurer’s Report (Paige):

*Donations to the LONE WOOF RESCUE will be happily taken at this weekend’s FLUX event at Aces& Ales and our upcoming Holiday party.

PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg):
*No update with the discussed JAMES BROWN DANCE PARTY (feat. George Porter Jr., Jennifer Hartswick) are interested in a possible ‘Vinyl’ event, Jan. 31-Feb. 2. Officers thought the Friday, Feb. 1st date would be best. More details TBD (Greg to inquire)

*Megan shared the update with the SCOTT PEMBERTON TRIO’S interest in one of the SCI late nights Feb. 15-17, at the SandDollar. The SandDollar books their events far in advance, for less money that the band expects/receives elsewhere. Greg to contact Andrew at the Hard Rock/Vinyl to inquire if they are available and want to take on this event. More details TBD.
*Discussed the Facebook messages that bands/musicians have posted in regards to us hosting them. No one has heard of the recent post re: Achilles Wheel
