Meeting Begins: 7:32 PM
In attendance: Paige, JT, Jessica, Ian, Rich H.
President’s Report (Greg): absent
Vice President’s Report (JT): “Happy New Year!”
*Our website, for the past two months, has been advertising non-LVJBS events, so our site can be utilized by those looking at it, wanting events to go to. We will be adding Brooklyn Bowl and other venues’ shows/events.
*We will reach out to RELIX magazine to inquire what help they may need from us, for any upcoming events/website ads.
*Been looking at random venues (which are conveniently located near the I-15 highway) and identified one that might be good for future use: LaJolla (a Spanish club) on W. Flamingo.
Treasurer’s Report (Paige):
*The 2018 Holiday party at THE HIDEAWAY was a good time. It costed the LVJBS $170 for this event. $140 went to Keller MS’s new Mariachi program. They were grateful.
*An email will soon be going out, inquiring WHICH Committees have returning 2019 ‘Committee Heads’ and which ones need replacements. Please be sure to sign up and volunteer!
* Don’t forget that attending monthly meetings can get you $5 credits for the next year’s dues. (up to $20max). Attendance is noted each month and an email is sent your way each December, letting you know the needed dues to keep current.
*Be sure to add your SMITH’S GROCERY card and your AMAZONSMILES account, to the ‘Jam Band Society of America’ non-profit help, to ensure a portion of your purchases comes back our way! Tell your friends/family!
Secretary’s Report (Jessica):
*Have been in touch with N*Dot regarding our ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY. There is a new person in charge of the program (Marc Cutler) and new bags are being ordered. I will find out any new procedures, so we can keep up with our ‘Quarterly’ clean-ups.
*JANUARY’S ‘Friends & Family’ will be the Fathom Entertainment’s WIZARD OF OZ, on the ‘big screen’ on SUNDAY, JANUARY 27th @ 2pm at the Colonnade Theaters, on Eastern Ave., near the 215. A Facebook event with the info will be made with the details.
*FEBRUARY’S ‘Friends & Family’ event will be looked into by Jimmy C. Possible gathering to the LION HABITAT, in Henderson. More info TBD.
Mayor’s report (absent: Jenny M. via text)
PRODUCTION REPORT (JT via Greg):
*TERRAPIN FLYER (feat. Melvin Seals) was looking at early February 4-10th. Ian had contacted the Bunkhouse, as suggested. Due to the preferred dates, the group feels it is not a good week, in between the SuperBowl and the busy, following weekend (DWC/Fruition) into the following weekend of SCI (& late nights).
More details on different (future) dates TBD.
*The SCOTT PEMBERTON TRIO (SCI late night after the Feb. 16th show) was booked at the SandDollar show. More details on the LVJBS helping out TBD.
*Ian spoke to Ryan (entertainment booker), at The Bunkhouse, in regards to our help with promotion in exchange for ‘comp-tickets’ to raffle amongst our members. They are down with this idea. More shows/events TBD.
*Discussed the possibility of the ‘resurrection’ of the after-Easter, pre Cinco de Mayo, LVJBS ‘Freako de Mayo’ event. Thoughts are to get a local LVJBS band to open for a touring California, or nearby, band. Ian to speak with Billy, CA band promoter, at the upcoming THE HIGGS show, to inquire about any possible band contacts. More details TBA.
*Be sure to check out LVJBS pals’, THE HIGGS, as they play THURSDAY, JANUARY 10th, at THE SANDDOLLAR, 10pm, free show.
