Las Vegas Jam Band Society
_This month, webmaster Kevin Dold offers his thoughts on the Las Vegas Jam Band Society
The Las Vegas Jam Band Society website was developed by me a member of the LVJBS in late 2002. I have continued to act as webmaster for the site as a donation to the LVJBS. I am a professional website developer and huge fan of live music.
The site is a great way for the LVJBS to get the word out about upcoming events and shows in Las Vegas. Now I would like to tell you a little bit about the LVJBS.
The Las Vegas Jam Band Society exists to help create a more supportive music community in southern Nevada for the musicians of the Jam Band genre. The goal is to educate ourselves and the community through grass roots promotions and concert events.
Through an expanded understanding and exposure to improvisational music we can provide a home for Jam Bands in Southern Nevada. We plan to make Southern Nevada a national destination for Jam Band Festivals and by doing so will provide our community with quality music and an enhancement of it’s cultural value. We believe in transcendence through music and together we can introduce more people to the magic of this music and the musicians who play it.
The Las Vegas Jam Band Society, an association of improvisational music enthusiasts, is the Las Vegas chapter of the Jam Band Society of America, Inc. The Jam Band Society of America, Inc. is a Nevada not for profit corporation created to promote live, improvisational music in Las Vegas, southern Nevada, and across the country.
