President’s Report (Greg): “Alrighty…So—ahhhhh, Guess we’ll start this!”
*A few of us made it out to the Bunkhouse’s Soul Juice Band & New Breed Brass Band last month. It was a good show.
*A 2019 goal, as President, is to still make the 4 events/year happen. We will start this off with THIS FRIDAY, Feb. 8th’s Fruition & Dead Winter Carpenters’ show at THE BUNKHOUSE.
*Looked into having our grateful pals’ CUBENSIS come to town for the first Quarterly event, at Garage Mahal, our Spring benefit, on April 20th. They are ‘booked’, but gave us some date options. (See Production Report below)
Vice President’s Report (JT):
*Have been adding the non-LVJBS sponsored shows to our website. This has given the LVJBS some provided comped-tickets to offer to our Members. Check them out!
*The VP of Entertainment at The Cosmopolitan, Fedor Banuchi, made contact recently in regards to offering us some tickets, in exchange for advertising help. We will be offered 10 tickets, for each night of The String Cheese Incident. We will look into assisting them for future events.
Treasurer’s Report (Paige):
*Our annual LONE WOOF RESCUE Sponsorship is due again. The group supports us continuing on.
*Discussion of needing to ‘pass on the torch’ of our Fundraising Committee. Megan B. and Paige to discuss some options and ideas for this needed change.
*A monthly ‘paid members’ list will now be sent out to Officers for better communication.
* 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.
*We have raised $46.01, from those using their ‘Smith’s Grocery’ cards!
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 heard some concerns on Members ‘not’ having an easy view of our Monthly meeting minutes. JT to begin sending out the minutes to the collected emails after notification is sent his way.
*JANUARY’S ‘Friends & Family’ , showing of WIZARD OF OZ, on the ‘big screen’ on SUNDAY, JANUARY 27th was ‘so popular’ (with other patrons) that it was SOLD-OUT. No one from LVJBS showed.
*FEBRUARY’S ‘Friends & Family’: More info TBD.
Mayor’s report (absent: Jenny M. via text)
Color: Your Mom’s Magenta
PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg):
*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.
Concerns are the 10pm start time, after the SCI completion of 11:30(ish) PM.
*CUBENSIS gave some dates in May (4, 11) and June (1, 8, 15, 22) for a future LVJBS show. Group things an earlier show (to avoid heat) is best. Possible venue: The Bunkhouse, with it’s outdoor area. Greg to inquire about the venue’s use and confirm the date. More info TBD.
*Garage MaHall, event on the Saturday, April 20th, is being looked into. Some bands of interest: Homecookin’, Moksha, The Higgs, Shaky Feelin’. More ideas welcome and the confirmed date/bands TBA.
*(Dave B.) Check out the band, THE REEVES BROTHERS
*(Megan B.) The discussion of what the LVJBS’s vision and goals are still had. It seems there has been some changes in the group’s membership/volunteering/positivity, which we all need to focus on and fix. Future meetings/discussions to be held to help create this needed support.
