We’re having a Groovy Friday this Thursday at 11:00 on Skiles!
Advertising: We have been asked to be house music for the Clough Art Crawl on Thursday. If you want to participate, email Ryan. We’re always looking for more people to make flyers and get involved in advertising, so if you’re interested, come talk to me, our other advertising officer, our Minister of Propaganda, or our Booking Officer. Also, check out lessons below.
Booking: If there’s a band you want to see or if you’re interested in joining the booking committee, come talk to me. We have an upcoming charity show on the 18th. Please come by. Its for a local food drive. We are looking to expand the current band line up. If you could donate anything, it would be greatly appreciated.
Minister of Propaganda: The deadline to confirm participation in the New Artist Showcase is Friday, February 24th. I am in charge of all things advertising. Our advertising committee, the Ministry of Propaganda, is a great way to get involved with the club; we produce flyers, chalk out on Skiles walkway, and more. You don’t have to be an officer to join. Also if you want to put up flyers, please do that. We have a lot of them.
Secretary: I organize and send out meeting minutes. If you need to join Orgsync or get on the mailing list, come talk to me.
Open Mic: The theme for Open Mic this week is Money, Fame, and Power. Open Mic will be temporarily moving to Mondays soon. I will be posting a covers sign up form as well. I run Open Mic nights every Thursday from 8:00 to 11:00, with signups at 7:30. I’m also in charge of live sound, so if you’re interested in learning more about that, come talk to me. I teach live sound classes Sundays at noon. I also run the YouTube channel, so if there’s anything you want to see, or you want to get involved with filming or photography, come talk to me.
General Manager: I am working on updating all of the contact info around the space. Also, if anyone knows a good local piano tuner, come talk to me. From here on out, the General Manager position will be more of a liaison with other GT organizations. I am also in charge booking for all GT Orgs events at firstname.lastname@example.org. GT Orgs must pay for a sound engineer to work the space. Further details are on the website.
Equipment Manager: The drum situation is slowly being remedied. New cymbals are a top priority. I manage equipment, including rentals and lockers. I also run the studio, so if you need anything recorded, or have any questions about the space, come talk to me. I have been working on organizing the lockers. We may have one locker open. By next meeting, I should have a complete list of lockers for use. I am planning on making moves in terms of improving the space soon. Major improvements include upgrading the cymbal kit for the drums.
Studio Manager: I run the studio. The studio is now open. It’s a resource for students to produce music in. The rates are up on the website. Studio sound class will be this Sunday; this weeks topic will be recording drums. Live sound class is from 12 – 1 on Sundays and Studio Sound is from 1 – 2

Vice President: I am in charge of booking practice times, so after paying dues and practice fees, come talk to me. If you have any other questions, come talk to me. After practicing in the space, make sure you turn everything off, wrap up cables, and have the info desk lock up the space. Talk to a GSM at the desk or call the number if they’re not there.
