Minutes – Nelson Jazz Club Committee Meeting Monday April 15, 2013

The Nelson Jazz Club Committee Meeting took place on Monday 15 April. Various agenda items were covered and new discussions started. The following is a brief overview:

  • Officer’s positions were confirmed: President – Dave North, Secretary – Karina Miller, Treasurer – Deb Fish with Mike Rhodes assisting with the Coordinator position.
  • Iain Clark reported good progress on the 2013 Youth Jazz Competition. The Club has received sponsorship for this event from Beggs Music Works Nelson and Prices Pharmacy. The venue will be confirmed at the next meeting.
  • The Festival would like to sponsor a Festival Cup which is to be an award given to top performer at Youth Jazz Competition.
  • Discussions were started about different types of club events that might appeal to the members. We currently have only a once-per-month club gig at Bar Berlin and the committee is researching other possible venues for both paid gigs and a regular club get-together-and-jam session. Any ideas and suggestions would be welcome.
  • Simon Williams and Chris Harris are making progress with the proposed Youth Jazz Orchestra and will report back at the next meeting.
