Members’ Meeting Minutes

January 8, 2019


Location:  ChebaHut (Sahara/Rainbow)

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 7 Family’ event will be looked into by Jimmy C.  Possible gathering to the LION HABITAT, in Henderson.  More info TBD.

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.

 

 

OPEN FLOOR:

*Be sure to check out LVJBS pals’, THE HIGGS, as they play THURSDAY, JANUARY 10th, at THE SANDDOLLAR, 10pm, free show.
