    AUGUST 2022 LVJBS Meeting Minutes 

    Date: August 2, 2022 

    Meeting Start: 7:05 PM

    Location: 595 Brewery

    Attendees:  Paige T., Jessica G., Jeffrey T., Ramon F.

    Item 1: President’s Report (Johnnie—absent w/ notes via Paige):

    “Let’s do this!”

    • ·      JT reached out to Steve Yakaitis who showed interest in volunteering and assisting us with fundraising since his retirement. (JT is hoping to make Steve an ‘assistant’ of sorts by helping to create a letter for sponsors to help with fundraising, contacting various sponsors, etc.) Nothing yet finalized.  More info TBD.
    • ·      Our 2nd Sunday events with TheeMessArounds at SaddlesN’Spurs (with an open jam) have been doing well. The next event is August 14th.  Please remember to spread the word (like & share it) for extra advertisement help.
    • Question: Does the LVJBS want to continue with these 2nd Sunday events?  If so, the next two months would fall on Sunday, Sept. 11th & Sunday, October 9th. (*The November date will conflict with our Tecopa Takeover & the December event would fall on Sunday, Dec. 11th.)
    • *Meeting attendees discussed a possible LVJBS Holiday Party on that date, if so. YET, later in the meeting (*see ‘Open Floor’) discussed a possible 3rd Sunday switch with LVBS (LV Blues Society), to possibly host a touring band with an LVJBS Holiday event on 12/18.  More details and discussion TBD.
    • ·         No reply yet from Goodwill via email attempt regarding instrument donations.  JT to call again soon. More info TBD.
    • ·         Still no reply from Dan R. as of now, in regards to the LVJBS’ empathy towards his recent loss of his lovely wife, so we will reach out once again, offering a Gift Card for an Airline/Travel Voucher for Dan to be able to visit family out of state.
    • ·         SHAKEY FEELIN’ is booked at the SandDollar Plaza for Sept. 23rd. (Greg to get graphic our way for advertising.)  
    • ·         We will be getting 10 tickets from BBLV to raffle off to our Members.  Winners posted SOON!
    • ·         Spoke with Harrison at RELIX magazine in regards to a RELIX table set up at Goose.  We will need 3-4 Volunteers, so please let us know if any interest! 

    Item 2: Vice President’s Report (Adam-absent)

    • ·         No report. 

    Item 3: Treasurer’s Report (Paige)

    ·         A.    Review of balances. Monies in both checking and savings (Scholarship fund money)

    ·         B.    Discussed the recent updates/research on the discussed ‘Las Vegas Jam Band Society Memorial Tree’ --We mentioned a possible memorial tree for our recent losses (Jenn M, Donna R., etc.).  Looked into pricing for these types of memorials. $500 to designate & plant our own ‘tree’ at a Las Vegas park of our choice.  Another option for $100, would provide a name plate/plaque to an existing tree. (Paige showed the researched location options and the existing tree info.)

    After great discussion, the meeting attendees narrowed down the $100 tree locations to more central locations, in safer, less crime-filled areas to avoid any vandalism. We also discussed being sure to check out ‘where’ in those parks the tree would be, to ensure there is ‘space’ for drum circle-type events that are not near neighborhood walls, etc.  (We do not want to have noise complaints, we want to ensure there is parking nearby, etc.)  Meeting attendees considered discussing the $500 tree, choosing our centrally located & drum-circle friendly, Sunset Park.  (*Paige & Jessica are going to make the effort to check out the other parks’ existing $100 trees, the location within the parks, & take photos to share at our Sept. meeting.) 

    • ·         C.    PAY YOUR DUES!  J

    Item 4: Secretary’s Report (Jessica)

    • ·         A. Met with Phil Kotler, the Entertainment & Events Manager at SQUARE BAR (Maryland Pkwy, near Karen—Commercial Center).  They have a small stage area with live music on Friday nights, which show on their bar TVs overhead, as well.  Their calendar is booked through August and sounded open to working with the LVJBS for future dates. 
    • (JT or Greg to make further contact via email:  phil@squarebarlasvegas.com or business phone: (702) 234-8963.) 

    Item 5:  Mayor’s Report (Greg—via text)

    ·         A.    Color:  Forest Green

    Item 6: Production Report (Greg—via text):

    • ·         A. Spoke with Dave about doing the discussed Legends Lounge/Grateful Dead ‘reunion style’ party (Sept./Oct.) at The Hideaway that was discussed at a recent meeting, yet it might be ‘too close’ to the Tecopa weekend which takes a lot of planning, as well.  Possible thought of asking CUBENSIS to join Tecopa instead.  More info TBD.

     

    Open Floor:

    • ·         Welcome Jeffrey Trower!  The TECOPA TAKEOVER is nearing (Nov. 11-13) & JFree brought up his annual Raffle-fun!  In the past, Volunteers have been great and helpful to ensure JFree can still enjoy the festival, without taking on the quite huge raffle tasks.  He asked if the LVJBS would still offer our volunteering help.  Paige & Jessica support and feel our ‘usual’ volunteers would assist. (Megan B. is often helpful in creating those volunteer sign-ups, etc.)
    • ·         JFree also mentioned a VARIETY-SHOW-type-SIDE-STAGE event (at Tecopa) where it would be an interactive, fun display of talents (e.g. jugglers, comedians, dancers, etc.)  Please be sure to spread the word of that fun, connecting Jfree with those interested artists.  J

     

    • ·         Welcome Ramon Fagundo!  Ramon has been talking with Derrick, the local manager for HOT BUTTERED RUM, who Ramon has recently become a ‘huge fan’.  HBR had played for the LVJBS in the past and are interested in coming through town again.  They are nearby, in SoCal the week of Dec. 7th-12th.  (The mention of SaddlesNSpurs, that following Sunday, Dec. 18th, was discussed in case the ‘date swap’ of the LVBS’s 3rd Sunday event could possible switch with ‘our 2nd Sunday’ date of Dec. 11th.  Our Production Team will soon make contact with the LVBS to see what their thoughts are before looking into another venue location/making contact with Hot Buttered Rum. (This event could also be our annual LVJBS Holiday Party!?)

    (Ramon shared his contact info with us for any future need!)  J

     

    • ·         Question brought up regarding the GAMBIT Henderson venue (the old E-String Bar & Grill).  Jessica to make contact with them to see what their venue is like these days & inquire whether or not it would welcome a LVJBS collaboration, or a possible meeting location to meet their Management.  More info shared at the Sept. meeting.

     

    • ·         The next LVJBS ADOPT-A-HIGHWAY after summer, clean-up will be on SUNDAY, 9/11 from 9AM-11AM.  More info to be shared soon, via a Facebook event.  Please plan on joining us to help clean-up our lake’s roadside!

Hoping that Steve could find various sponsors’ best contact and JT would follow-up accordingly.

    Attendees: Johnnie T, Adam P., Paige T., Jessica G., Greg S.

    Item 1: President’s Report (Johnnie):

    “Okay—Let’s get this party started!”

    Follow-up from last month:

    *JT & Paige (&/or Jessica) still plan to check ROSIE’S SALOON & CAFÉ (formerly Rosie’s Den) to see what it has to offer the LVJBS....*off the US93, in White Hills, AZ, recently being remodeled by Terribles’ Casino group.  They have a stage area and are welcoming to have us work with them.  (More details TBA)

    *Recently met the Marketing/Communications Director for GoodWill.  She mentioned the many donated instruments and other available items that might be helpful for our Scholarship/Donation focus. (Our Members, Basia & Steve, mentioned recently purchasing a Clarinet on the ‘Goodwill’ online auction, through their ‘musical instrument’ section.)

    *We decided to cancel our participation with SaddleNSpurs for the 2nd Sunday, in April, event due to the conflicting CA Skull & Roses festival.  We want to ensure the LVJBS members are representing/attending these Sunday events.  Future event TBD. (Sending some interested Bands/Musicians names their way!)

    *To help get our LVJBS names out/possible donations from the community, we looked into a ‘Bulk-Mailer’ flyer that is distributed through various zip codes.

    *Our website will be updated and some links added for the various venues and businesses that we work with.  Removal of previous businesses that are no longer associated with the LVJBS.  (Jessica & Paige to get list to JT to make the needed edits.)

    *We have a collaboration with the BBLV and a few other venues to help advertise in exchange for comp-tickets for our members.  Greg contacted Virgin Hotels to see about us possibly working with them, as well.

    *The Lion Habitat ‘April Friends & Family’ registration link has about 15-20 listed.  We will continue to advertise the event, in hopes to reach the needed 30 paid for the ‘discount’ offer.

    Item 2: Vice President’s Report (Adam)

    *Will contact Mark Shunock regarding the 15-20 ‘grants’ that The Space supposedly received and see what we can help distribute.

    Item 3: Treasurer’s Report (Paige)

    ·         A.    Review of balances. Monies in both checking and savings (Scholarship fund money)

    ·         B.     The Payment ($250) to Chuck Garvey (moe.) was cashed/received & glad to hear He’s doing better each day!

    ·         C. Received a $50 check from TISBEST.org in regards to some recently purchased Gift Cards that gave back to a non-profit.

    ·         D. Received a 1099-NEC form due to the Mark Shunock collaboration of funds—non-profit to non-profit. This won’t affect our tax reports.

    ·         E.    PAY YOUR DUES!  J

    Item 4: Secretary’s Report (Jessica)

    ·         A.    REMINDER of the APRIL ‘Friends & Family Event” will be to the LION HABITAT in West Henderson. We had asked for a non-profit group discount & have been offered a $5 savings per ticket, if 30 tickets are purchased (They will be $20/ea. if 30 tickets (for ages 15 and up) aren’t sold.)  Each adult ticket allows a child, under the age of 14 free admission. This event will be on Saturday, April 2nd, from 11am-3pm. Be on the lookout for a Facebook Event with the information and a WildApricot sign-up/RSVP.  Tell your friends & bring your family!

    ·         B. A musician from SoCal, Kenny Metcalf, stars as Elton John, in a tribute performance of “Elton, The Early Years” and would like to play a Las Vegas event.  (Info will be sent to JT to connect TheSpace with him for a possible future event.)

    Item 5:  Mayor’s Report (Greg)

    ·         A.    Color:  SUNFLOWER YELLOW & UKRANIAN BLUE

    Item 6: Production Report (Greg via text at VGK game)

    ·         A.    TERRAPIN FLYER is looking for a Tuesday, 4/26 venue.  We sent their info to the SandDollar, yet their weeknight shows are booked through May.  This 4/26 date is now booked in Phoenix.

    ·         B.     Jesse Dunn of Deadwinter Carpenters contacted us in regards to a new collaboration EXTRA GOLD (cosmic country-rock:  Dead/Allman Bros.) & were interested in Friday, July 8th.  Greg contacted the SandDollar who already has every weekend booked through June.

    FEBRUARY 2022 LVJBS Meeting Minutes 

    Date: February 1, 2022 

    Meeting Start: 7:10 PM

    Location: Jacksons Bar & Grill 

    Attendees: Johnnie T, Paige T., Jessica G., Teah H., (Greg by text)

    Item 1: President’s Report (Johnnie):

    “Thanks for coming!”

    *Heard back from BBLV regarding the ticket distribution for the Melvin Seals/JGB show.  All of the comp-tickets were picked up, except one.  (That person did cancel the ticket need, but within 24 hours, not the needed 48 hours.  Be sure to remember to not get penalized for future ticket registrations, a 48 hour window is needed to allow time for the ‘runners-up’ to get on the will-call list.)

    *A concern was had from one of our longtime members in why a ticket was not offered for her proper ‘tagging of 5 non-members’ & we identified the problem was the lack of ‘registering’ the ticket request on the WildApricot email. We are adding her name to an upcoming raffle, due to the miscommunication to compensate this mistake. **Please be sure to follow ALL steps of the ticket process.

    *Also, BBLV has offered ‘unlimited’ comps for LVJBS ‘Members, Friends & Family’ for the upcoming ‘Rock & Roll Playhouse”, matinee--all-ages event, for Saturday, February 12th, featuring CATFISH JOHN.  Be on the look out to sign-up & register your ticket requests on WildApricot.  Also, a Facebook, “LVJBS February Friends & Family” event invite will soon go out. 

    *The WildApricot’s webpage for registration has been modified and updated.  Check it out!

    Also, there’s now a ‘Virtual Tip Jar’ link for events, so donations to specific bands/events can be made.

    *When LVJBS posted and asked, “what jambands should be contacted for future Las Vegas BBLV shows” & over 256 comments were made.  We have narrowed it down to the top 10 and will be providing BBLV with the list.

    *Spoke with ART DURAN, a BBLV Employee who also plays in a local, reggae band.  We will be sharing his contact info with SaddleN’Spurs for a possible future event.
